Title: IFR 2398 spectrum analyzer
Post by: Domrich on November 16, 2017, 07:07:41 pm
Hi Everybody
I got a IFR2398 with a curious issue.
All tests pass and especially level test.
The level show 15dB under the right level whatever is the frequency and the level of the input signal. Excepted this everything is OK and absolutely no error is reported.
The input level is verified with other generators and analyzer.
I cannot figure out how it is possible. I have checked the input HF block and for me it is OK.
Has somebody already seen that? Any idea? I do not know what to check!!
