Frequency Counter SF-401 PLUS SURECOM Portable CTCSS/DCS Decoder 


The frequency meter capable of measuring the parameters of the frequency of the continuous carrier signal walkie-talkies , with signal strength indicator.
it is the tool of choice for maintenance personnel ,test frequency and signal strength of wireless enthusiasts.
This portable frequency counter is designed for counting continuous wave signal comes from Two-way Radio. 
There are easy ranges for you to choose. The ranges cover most of the frequency of the two way radios you want to measure. 
Its four-button control is easy to use and its small size allows you to carry it anywhere you like.
 Work by  TCXO(Temperature Compensate X'tal (crystal) Oscillator) ,In the range of -45 ℃ ~ 65 ℃ can reach ± 2 ~ ± 4ppm accuracy
This include very interesting frequency areas such as 2m HAM radio, all VHF and UHF
DMR Radio signal e frequency counter.

How to check Frequency measuring.   

The transmitter near the frequency counter antenna , see the signal reception conditions is zone green, you can test. Please see Pic.3
e.g. display 1800.000Mhz  , The transmitter distance is too close to the frequency counter will affect the test results, , the signal bar is red .(see Pic.1)
e.g. display 0.000, , The transmitter distance is too far to the frequency counter and signal is weak ,will affect the test results,  the signal bar is low .(see Pic.1)
! Note: (27MHz to 100MHz It can not be guaranteed and the corresponding normal emission appliance) .

How to check Frequency of Digital DMR Radio 
Press[ F3 Digital] from Measuring screen mode   See PIC.1
Note: Use Digital mode have 3 Decimal only

MENU funtion setting and save.    
Press [F1] > into menu Page
Press [F3 down] or [F4 Up] into System and Press [F2 Rtn] into system Page PIC.4
Press[F3 down] or [F4 Up] select funtion ,Press [F2 Edit] > [F3 - ][F4 +] change mode
Press[Menu]  >  [F1 ]to Exit  or  [F4 ] to Save and Exit

Menu Setting
Rf defect level: The smaller the rf detect level, the more sensitive

How to check CTCSS/DCS code 
1.Radio must be 136-174/400-520MHz
2.Radio must be ANALOG
