  • Frequency table for MSK 30

    With the new digital MEM plan DVBC_DIG (selection via the Plan button in the CATV measuring range), measurements can now be taken in the 8 MHz grid below the S21. Thus, it is ensured that also digital measurements can be performed below the S21. As the measuring device always begins measuring in analogue by default, it is still the analogue frequency that is displayed in the CATV measurement under “Frequency”.
    The frequency to be measured is already stored in the "Channel" tab, so that a simple measurement is possible.

    The installation of the MEM plan is described in the S.M.A.R.T instruction manual on pages 8 and 9.

    Important: The entire MEM plan must be loaded, otherwise a single channel plan will be overwritten.

    All other lists in the MEM plan have not been updated.
