Frequency Recorder

The Optoelectronics Scout Frequency Recorder is ideal for searching out and recording unknown frequencies. If you're serious about frequency finding look no further than the Scout. 

Armed with 400 memories the Scout is designed for portable operation. Take it anywhere, sporting events, the zoo, airports and more. The Scout captures and displays the strongest frequency in the nearfield that is 15dB above the background RF levels.

With a beeper and vibrator alert you will never miss what the Scout has captured. The Reaction Tune feature of the Scout, patented by Optoelectronics, allows the Scout to instantly tune a compatible receiver to the frequency it captures.
