Freedom R8000C The Industry Standard Since 2009

The R8000C is the third generation of the industry-standard LMR communications system analyzer first shipped in 2009. Weighing just 14 pounds, the R8000 is the only test set to offer complete benchtop functionality in a portable, software-defined package. Firmware upgrades are available free for the life of the unit, so the R8000’s capabilities only expand over time. The R8000 tests every major digital LMR protocol is highly expandable and boasts the best spectral purity in the industry. In fact, its RF specification meets or surpasses those of instruments costing thousands of Pounds more. All which explains why the R8000 has become the preferred PMR/LMR test tool for thousands of radio technicians worldwide.
