Signal Hound has released the Signal Hound BB60C, a successor to the popular Signal Hound BB60A. The Signal Hound BB60C is a real-time spectrum analyzer and RF recorder. It has significantly enhanced performance compared to the BB60A. The BB60C has a frequency range of 9 kHz to 6 GHz, an instantaneous bandwidth (IBW) of 27 MHz, and the ability to sweep the RF spectrum at 24 GHz per second. The Signal Hound BB60C is ideal for real-time spectrum monitoring, manufacturing process control, interference hunting, spread spectrum signal analysis, capturing intermittent events, and general purpose spectrum analysis. When compared to the BB60A this new model has improved SFDR (Spurious-Free Dynamic Range) by typically 20 dB; the noise floor has been flattened by reducing frequency band transitions more than 8 dB; operating temperatures have been extended down to -40°C and up to +65°C; and streaming I/Q (In-phase Quadrature) bandwidth is now selectable from 250 kHz to 27 MHz. It is small in size and light weight, weighing only 1.1 lbs. It has good spectral purity, wide temperature range operation, broadband I/Q streaming capability, open source code spectrum analysis software. By adding custom software and a low-cost Intel i5 NUC vPro-enabled computer, model DC53427HYE, the user can also remotely perform spectrum analysis, manage system recovery, turn on and off the BB60C, and update software, all over the Ethernet. The Signal Hound BB60C ships with a fully documented API written in C++. The open source spectrum analyzer software provides excellent examples of efficient techniques for creating new functions and interfacing the API when writing customized applications. These analyzers can be used for a wide range of applications. Industry is using the spectrum analyzers for process monitoring and embedding them in specialty products. Government is using them for spectrum monitoring. Electronic repair technicians, engineering students, ham radio enthusiasts, and electronics hobbyists are all finding them useful. Although they are small and affordable, they have the sensitivity, accuracy, and dynamic range expected from expensive and bulky test equipment. Availability The Signal Hound BB60C is in stock, ready for immediate shipment. The Signal Hound BB60C sells for $2,879 USD. Price will vary outside USA due to distributor cost of shipping, import taxes, and currency fluctuations. The Signal Hound BB60C will be on Display at the IMS 2014 in Tampa from the 3-5th of June at Booth #1550.

Bowling, Jr.)Port Isabel joined with other cities across the Rio Grande Valley Tuesday night as they set aside April 9, 2011 as a day to honor those who served in the Vietnam War. Mayor Joe E. Vega proclaimed that this would be done and presented a copy of a proclamation to veterans in attendance of the Tuesday night city meeting.“I was not a veteran,” said Vega, “but I have the up-most respect for these guys. They are the reason we are living in a country that is free.”A day of celebration has been set aside with events beginning in the early morning hours at the McAllen Convention Center on that day.“This has been a long time coming,” said Veteran Robert Vela, “there are a lot of guys that I wish were still here to see this.”Vela asked a small group of veterans in attendance to lead the night with the Pledge of Allegiance. Afterwards, when speaking with the veterans, each man spoke of the days 50 years back when they returned from the war.“There were certainly no parades,” said Vela, “as a matter of fact we had to run from the plane because people were throwing things at us. Now people are looking at us differently, and even though it sometimes seems too little too late, it means a lot to us all.”For more on this story, pick up a copy of the Mar. 10 edition of the Port Isabel South Padre Press or check out our E-edition by clicking here.

Today it will be 11 miles from Peyresourd to Loudenville. For riders who will be refrained on a steep climb, this will often mean that they need to descend to the very limit of risk to limit loss.The eye is extremely intense in the first hours and a huge battle is being played by Matt White, the sports director of Mitchelton-Scott, who plays Adam Yates’ jersey.It will be interesting to see which strategy is chosen on Saturday, says Wout Van Aert, who will again turn into a warm and strong domesticate of Primo Roglie and Tom Dumoulin.
