Freedom R8200 The Premium Ultra Portable Service Monitor With VNA

The Freedom R8200 from Astronics Test Systems represents a major step in the evolution of the Land Mobile Radio service monitor. The R8200 is the first and only test instrument that combines comprehensive digital and analogue PMR/LMR testing with the ability to measure important RF network characteristics such as Return Loss, VSWR and Phase. The R8200 is also the only service monitor with the ability to display RF parameters in a Smith Chart for more complicated network analysis.

The R8200 enables the radio communication technician to carry one portable instrument rather than two – making his or her job easier and freeing space in the van or on the bench. Organizations can now save thousands of Pounds and potentially much more by combining two instruments into one.  And while it is a completely new, high-specification, premium platform, the R8200 can be purchased with the knowledge that it is backed by the world-class service and technical support capabilities of Astronics Test Systems – the same company that produces the industry-leading R8100 and R8000 communications analyzers.


Saving money and making the technician’s life easier – the next generation of PMR/LMR test instruments from Astronics Test Systems.

The R8200’s newly designed RF architecture features the best spectral purity in the industry, plus a single-port Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) capable of measuring return loss, VSWR, and Phase.  There is simply no comparable product on the market.
