8711C, 8712C, 8713C, 8714C Tower Demonstration Software

This IBASIC program demonstrates the capabilities of the 8711 family of analyzers when testing antenna towers, cell sites, and transmission lines. This is a fully-functional program and may be used to obtain actual results. The code may be used as a basis for a more customized version if desired.

This program is designed to minimize user interaction and involvement and time spent at the top of any tower. Only the open/short/load standards need be made at the top of the tower. Measurement of insertion loss of the tower cable requires that only one end of the cable be connected to the analyzer. If a cable fault is found, it can be quickly and accurately located by using the Fault Location feature.

The program will run from within the network analyzer only.
