Intermod Order
Select the 3rd, 5th or 7th order of intermodulation. The Anritsu handheld will automatically set the center frequency based on the new intermod.
Span
Press the Freq main menu key followed by the Span submenu key and enter the desired span. The Span menu is used to set the frequency range over which the instrument will sweep. The span can be set from 1 kHz to 100 kHz. Reducing the span will lower the noise floor of the instrument. The default setting of 5 kHz is recommended for most measurements.
Use the keypad, the directional arrow keys, or the rotary knob to increase or decrease the span frequency. If the span is changed using the arrow keys, the span changes in 1‑2‑5 steps for each key press.
Parameter Setup
