Brief Description

The R&S®DDF007 portable direction finder has an integrated, fast wideband receiver that covers a very wide frequency range. The battery-operated unit relies on high-precision DF methods. The R&S®DDF007 is used in conjunction with compact DF antennas, making it ideal for all applications that call for a powerful yet handy direction finder.

The DF system consists of the R&S®DDF007 portable direction finder and a compact DF antenna (R&S®ADD107 or R&S®ADD207). The DF antennas come with an integrated GPS module, an electronic compass and an optional magnetic mount vehicle adapter. Installing the portable direction finder in a commercial vehicle therefore takes no more than a few minutes.
