Master Transmitter Testing
SmART mEASUREmENTS FOR TRANSmITTER SYSTEmS
Commonly needed transmitter measurements are built in and can be accessed easily. These include field strength, occupied
bandwidth, channel power, adjacent channel power ratio (ACPR), and emission mask.
OCCUPIED bANDWIDTH
This measurement determines the amount of spectrum used by a modulated
signal. The Spectrum Master allows you to choose between two different
methods of determining bandwidth: the percent-of-power method or
the “x” dB down method.
ADjACENT CHANNEL POWER RATIO
Adjacent Channel Power Ratio is a common transmitter measurement.
High ACPR will create interference for neighboring carriers. This
measurement can be used to replace the traditional two-tone
Intermodulation Distortion (IMD) test for system non-linear behavior.
Occupied bandwidth
FIELD STRENGTH mEASUREmENTS
The Spectrum Master can determine the effects of electromagnetic fields
caused by transmitter systems. Specific antenna factors of the connected
antenna are automatically taken into account, and field strength is displayed
directly in dBµV/m. The Spectrum Master also supports a wide range of
directional antennas. If you are using a different antenna, Master Software
Tools can be used to edit the antenna list and upload the custom antenna list
to the instrument to accurately measure the maximum field strength.
EmISSION mASK
Adjacent Channel Power Ratio
The emission mask is a segmented upper limit line that will display
frequency range, peak power and frequency, relative power and pass/fail
status for each segment of the mask. The emission mask must have at least
two segments. Emission mask adjusts to the peak power value of transmitted
signal level per government emission mask requirements.
Emission mask

Master the Location of Interference
As the wireless industry continues to expand, more diverse uses for the radio spectrum emerge, and the number of signals that may
potentially cause interference is constantly increasing.
Compounding the problem are the many sources that can generate interference, including intentional radiators, un-intentional
radiators, and self interference. Interference causes Carrier-to-Interference degradation robbing the network of capacity.
The goal of these measurements is to resolve interference issues as quickly as possible.
INTERFERENCE ANALYSIS (OPTION 25)
The interference analyzer option provides you with a spectrogram display,
RSSI, signal strength meter, signal ID, and signal mapping capabilities.
Spectrum Master’s integrated spectrum analyzer can detect signals as
low as –152 dBm.
SPECTROGRAm DISPLAY
Spectrogram Display
This option provides you with a three-dimensional display of frequency,
power, and time of the spectrum activity to identify intermittent interference
and track signal levels over time. The dual display screen allows for easy
viewing of both the spectrum and 3D display. The Spectrum Master allows
you to save a history of data up to one week.
RECEIVED SINGLE STRENGTH INDICATOR (RSSI)
You can use the Spectrum Master’s RSSI measurement to observe the signal
strength of a single frequency over time, and collect data for up to one week.
SIGNAL STRENGTH mETER
The Spectrum Master’s signal strength meter can locate an interfering signal
by using a directional antenna and measuring the signal strength. It displays
power in Watts or dBm, in the graphical analog meter display and by an
audible beep proportional to its strength.
Signal Strength meter
SIGNAL ID
Spectrum Master’s signal ID feature in the interference analyzer can help
you quickly identify the type of the interfering signal. You can configure
this measurement to identify all signals in the selected band or to simply
monitor one single interfering frequency. The Spectrum Master then
displays results that include center frequency, signal bandwidth, and signal
type (FM, GSM/GPRS/EDGE, W-CDMA/HSDPA, CDMA/EV-DO, Wi-Fi,
P25, NXDN).
Signal ID
CARRIER-TO-INTERFERENCE mEASUREmENT
Spectrum Master’s carrier-to-interference measurement capability makes it
simple for you to determine if the level of interference will affect users in the
intended service area.
Am/Fm/SSb DEmODULATION
A built-in demodulator for AM, narrowband FM, wideband FM and single
sideband allows you to easily identify the interfering signal.
Carrier-to-Interference (C/I)

Pin Point Location of Interfering Signal with Interference Mapping
INTERFERENCE mAPPING
The Interference Mapping measurement eliminates the need to use printed
maps and draw lines to triangulate the interfering signal.
Using Map Master, it is easy to convert maps and make them compatible
with the Spectrum Master. With a valid GPS signal, the instrument identifies
the user location on the map. Using one of the recommended Anritsu Yagi
antennas, you can identify the direction of the interfering signal and input the
angle information with the rotary knob. With two or more lines from different
locations, it is possible to obtain an estimate location of the interfering signal.
The Interference Mapping can be done directly on the Spectrum Master. Files
can also be saved as kml and opened with Google Earth™.
DIRECTIONAL ANTENNAS
Interference mapping with Google Earth™
Anritsu offers more than eight different directional antennas covering a
wide range of frequency bands including: 822 to 900 MHz, 885 to 975 MHz,
1710 to 1880 MHz, 1850 to 1990 MHz, 2400 to 2500 MHz, 1920 to 2170 MHz,
500 to 3000 MHz, and 600 to 21000 MHz.

the instrument monitors RSSI and ACPR levels automatically. Using a map
created with Map Master, the instrument displays maps, the location of the
measurement, and a special color code for the power level. The refresh rate
can be set up in time (1 sec, minimum) or distance.
The overall amplitude accuracy coupled with the GPS update rate ensures
accurate and reliable mapping results
Outdoor mapping
INDOOR mAPPING
When there is no GPS signal valid, the Spectrum Master uses a start-walkstop approach to record RSSI and ACPR levels. You can set the update rate,
start location, and end location and the interpolated points will be displayed
on the map.

The Spectrum Master features Signal
Analyzers for the major wireless standards
around the world. The Signal Analyzers are
designed to test and verify the:
GSM/GPRS/EDGE
High Frequency Error will cause calls to drop when
mobiles travel at higher speed. In some cases, cell
phones cannot hand off into, or out of the cell.
This is the single most important signal quality
measurement. Poor EVM leads to dropped calls, low
data rate, low sector capacity, and blocked calls.

degrade to an unacceptable level, a
technician can troubleshoot down to
the Field Replacement Unit (FRU) in the
base station’s transmitter chain. This
will minimize the problem of costly no

LTE Signal Analyzers (Options 0541, 0542, 0546)
LTE Signal Analyzers
The Spectrum Master features three LTE
measurement modes:
• RF Measurements
• Modulation Measurements
• Over-the-Air Measurements (OTA)
RF Measurements – Occupied Bandwidth
The bandwidth that contains 99% of the total carrier
power. Excessive occupied bandwidth means excessive
adjacent channel interference.
The goal of these measurements is
to increase data rate and capacity by
accurate power settings, ensuring low
out-of-channel emissions, and good signal
quality. These attributes help to create a
low dropped call rate, a low blocked call
rate, and a good customer experience.
Cell site technicians or RF engineers can
make measurements Over-the-Air (OTA)
to spot-check a transmitter’s coverage
and signal quality without taking the cell
site off-line. When the OTA test results are
ambiguous one can directly connect to the
base station to check the signal quality
and transmitter power.
Adjacent Channel Leakage Ratio (ACLR)
Modulation Quality – EVM
High or low values will create larger areas of cell-tocell interference and create lower data rates near cell
edges. Low values affect in-building coverage.
Adjacent Channel Leakage Ratio (ACLR)
measures how much BTS signal gets into
neighboring RF channels. ACLR checks the
closest (adjacent) and the second closest
(alternate) channels. Poor ACLR can lead
to interference with adjacent carriers
and legal liability. It also can indicate
poor signal quality which leads to low
throughput.

excessive overlapping coverage, it also will
lead to poor EVM and low data rates
Frequency Error
Over-the-Air Measurements – Sync Signal Power
Check for uneven amplitude of sub-carriers. Data will
be less reliable on weak sub-carriers, creating a lower
over-all data rate.
Frequency Error is a check to see that
the carrier frequency is precisely correct.
The Spectrum Master can accurately
measure Carrier Frequency Error OTA if the
instrument is GPS enabled. Calls will drop
when mobiles travel at higher speed. In
some cases, cell phones cannot hand off
into, or out of the cell.
Sync Signal Mapping
Pass/Fail Test
Set up common test limits, or sets of limits, for
each instrument. Inconsistent settings between base
stations, leads to inconsistent network behavior.
Sync Signal Scanner can be used with the
GPS to save scan results for later display
on a map. The EVM of the strongest synch
signal available at that spot is also recorded.
The Cell, Sector, and Group ID information
is also included so that it’s easier to
interpret the results. Once the Synch

GSM/GPRS/EDGE Signal Analyzers (Options 0040, 0041)
GSM/GPRS/EDGE Analyzers
The Spectrum Master features two GSM/
GPRS/ EDGE measurement modes.
RF Measurement – Occupied Bandwidth
Excessive occupied bandwidth can create interference
with adjacent channels or be a sign of poor signal
quality, leading to dropped calls.
Demodulation – Error Vector Magnitude (EVM)
This is the single most important signal quality
measurement. Poor EVM leads to dropped calls, low
data rate, low sector capacity, and blocked calls.
Channel Power
Occupied Bandwidth
The goal of these measurements is
to increase data rate and capacity by
accurate power settings, ensuring low
out-of-channel emissions, and good
signal quality. These attributes help to
create a low dropped call rate, a low
blocked call rate, and a good customer
experience.
Cell site technicians or RF engineers can
make measurements Over-the-Air (OTA)
to spot-check a transmitter’s coverage
and signal quality without taking the cell
site off-line. When the OTA test results
are ambiguous one can directly connect
to the base station to check the signal
quality and transmitter power.
For easy identification of which cell you
are measuring the Base Station Identity
Code (BSIC) gives the base station id,
the Network Color Code (NCC) identifies
the owner of the network, and the Base
Station Color Code (BCC) provides the
sector information.
Carrier-to-Interference (C/I)
Phase Error is a measure of the phase
difference between an ideal and actual
GMSK modulated voice signal. High
phase error leads to dropped calls,
blocked calls, and missed handoffs.
Origin Offset
Origin Offset is a measure of the
DC power leaking through local
oscillators and mixers. A high Origin
Offset will lower EVM and Phase Error
measurements and create higher
dropped call rates.
Power versus Time (Slot and Frame)
Pass/Fail Test
Set up common test limits, or sets of limits, for
each instrument. Inconsistent settings between base
stations, leads to inconsistent network behavior.
18
Channel Spectrum
• Demodulation
Phase Error
High or low values will create larger areas of cell-tocell interference and create lower data rates near cell

• RF Measurements
C/I indicates the quality of the received
signal. It also can be used to identify
areas of poor signal quality. Low C/I
ratios will cause coverage issues
including dropped calls, blocked calls,
and other handset reception problems.
RF Measurement – Average Burst Power
RF Measurements
Power versus Time (Slot and Frame)
should be used if the GSM base station
is setup to turn RF power off between
timeslots. When used OTA, this
measurement can also spot GSM signals
from other cells. Violations of the mask

SEM is a way to check out-of-channel
spurious emissions near the carrier. These
spurious emissions both indicate distortion
in the signal and can create interference
with carriers in the adjacent channels. Faults
lead to interference and thus, lower data
rates, for adjacent carriers. Faults also may
lead to legal liability and low in-channel
signal quality.
Rho
Rho is a measure of modulation quality.
Rho Pilot, Rho Mac, and Rho Data are the

Fixed WiMAX Signal Analyzers
The Spectrum Master features two Fixed
WiMAX measurement modes:
• RF Measurements
• Demodulation
RF Measurements – Occupied Bandwidth
The bandwidth that contains 99% of the total carrier
power. Excessive occupied bandwidth means excessive
adjacent channel interference.
The goal of these measurements is
to increase data rate and capacity by
accurate power settings, ensuring low
out-of-channel emissions, and good signal
quality. These attributes help to create a
low dropped call rate, a low blocked call
rate, and a good customer experience.
Cell site technicians or RF engineers can
make measurements Over-the-Air (OTA)
to spot-check a transmitter’s coverage
and signal quality without taking the cell
site off-line. When the OTA test results are
ambiguous one can directly connect to the
base station to check the signal quality
and transmitter power.
Adjacent Channel Power Ratio (ACPR)
RF Measurement – Preamble Power
High or low values will create larger areas of cell-tocell interferences and create lower data rates near cell
edges. Low values affect in-building coverage.
Adjacent Channel Power Ratio (ACPR)
measures how much BTS signal gets into
neighboring RF channels. ACPR checks the
closest (adjacent) and the second closest
(alternate) channels. Poor ACPR can lead
to interference with adjacent carriers
and legal liability. It also can indicate
poor signal quality which leads to low
throughput.
Base Station ID
Base Station ID indicates which base
station is being measured OTA. The
strongest base station at your current
location is selected for measurement.
Wrong values for base station ID lead
to inability to register. If the cause is
excessive overlapping coverage, it also
will lead to poor RCE and low data rates.
Relative Constellation Error (RCE)
Demodulation – Spectral Flatness
Check for uneven amplitude of sub-carriers. Data will
be less reliable on weak sub-carriers, creating a lower
over-all data rate.
RCE, when used Over-the-Air (OTA), is
a test that is ideal for checking received
signal quality. High RCE leads directly to
low data rate, which creates dissatisfied
customers and lowers the data capacity
of the sector. Very high RCE results in
dropped calls, timeouts, and inability
to register.
Adjacent Subcarrier Flatness (Peak)
Adjacent Subcarrier Flatness (Peak) is
measured between one sub-carrier and
the next. Poor flatness will give the weaker
sub-carriers a high bit error rate and lower
capacity. Data will be less reliable on weak
sub-carriers, creating a lower over-all data
rate.
Pass/Fail Test
Set up common test limits, or sets of limits, for each
instrument. Inconsistent settings between base stations
leads to inconsistent network behavior.

Cell ID, Sector ID, and Preamble
Demodulation – Frequency Error
Calls will drop when user’s equipment travels at high
speed. In severe cases, handoffs will not be possible at
any speed, creating island cells.
Cell ID, Sector ID, and Preamble show
which cell, sector, and segment are being
measured OTA. The strongest signal is
selected automatically for the additional
PCINR and Base Station ID measurement.
Wrong values for cell, sector and segment
ID lead to dropped handoffs and island cells.
If the cause is excessive coverage, it also
will lead to large areas of low data rates.
Error Vector Magnitude (EVM)
Relative Constellation Error (RCE)
Over-the-Air Measurements – PCINR
A low Physical Carrier to Interference plus Noise Ratio
(PCINR) indicates poor signal quality, low data rate and
reduced sector capacity.
RCE and EVM measure the difference
between the actual and ideal signal. RCE
is measured in dB and EVM in percent.
A known modulation is required to make
these measurements. High RCE and
EVM causes low signal quality, low data
rate, and low sector capacity. This is

TD-SCDMA/HSDPA Signal Analyzers
The Spectrum Master features three
TD-SCDMA/HSDPA measurement modes:
Empty downlink slots with access power will reduce the
sensitivity of the receiver and the size of the sector.
This will cause dropped and blocked calls.
Demodulation – Scrambling Code
Scrambling Code measurements provide a check for
the BTS settings. Scrambling Code errors can cause a
very high dropped call rate on hand off.
Channel Power
Occupied Bandwidth
The goal of these measurements is
to increase data rate and capacity by
accurate power settings, ensuring low

to spot-check a transmitter’s coverage
and signal quality without taking the cell
site off-line. When the OTA test results are
ambiguous one can directly connect to the
base station to check the signal quality
and transmitter power.
Error Vector Magnitude (EVM) EVM is the
ratio of errors, or distortions, in the actual
signal, compared to a perfect signal. EVM
faults will result in poor signal quality to
all user equipment. In turn, this will result
in extended hand off time, lower sector
capacity, and lower data rates, increasing
dropped and blocked calls.
Peak CDE is the EVM of the worst code.
Code Domain displays show the traffic
in a specific time slot. Peak CDE faults
will result in poor signal quality to all
user equipment. In turn, this will result
in extended hand off time, lower sector
capacity, and lower data rates.
OTA Tau Scanner Ec/Io
Excessive sync codes produce too much co-channel
interference, which leads to lower capacity, low data
rate and excessive handoffs.
Ec/Io faults indicate excessive or
inadequate coverage and lead to low
capacity, low data rates, extended
handoffs, and excessive call drops.
DwPTS OTA Power Mapping
DwPTS OTA Power when added to
Ec/Io gives the absolute sync code power
which is often proportional to PCCPCH
(pilot) power. Use this to check and plot
coverage with GPS. Coverage plots can
be downloaded to PC based mapping
programs for later analysis. Poor readings
will lead to low capacity, low data rates,
excessive call drops and call blocking.
Pass/Fail Test
Set up common test limits, or sets of limits, for each
instrument. Inconsistent settings between base stations
leads to inconsistent network behavior.

Spectrum Master™ Compact Handheld Spectrum Analyzer Features
ISDB-T Signal Analyzers (Options 0030, 0032)
ISDB-T Signal Analyzer
The Spectrum Master features options that
enable area survey measurements and
the installation and field maintenance of
ISDB-T digital broadcasting equipment in
accordance with ARIB (Japan) and ABNT
(Brazil) standards.
RF Measurements – Signal Power
The Signal Power screen showing the transmission
channel power and signal field strength used to assess
suitable reception coverage area.
The user has three measurement modes
to choose from depending on the his skill
level and test environment: Custom,
where specific measurements and setups
are chosen; Easy, where some setup
parameters are automatically set or
detected; Batch, where the user can
specify all relevant measurements, setups
and channels for automatic measurement
and results’ display for fast and efficient
field testing.
The goal of all measurements is to ensure
digital TV transmitters are configured
according to license agreements and
optimized for error-free reception over the
entire coverage area helping to create an
excellent televisual experience.

RF Measurements – Spectrum Mask
The Spectrum Mask measurement is shown. ISDB-T
systems in Japan and South America call for different
spectrum mask specifications. Both are catered for.
Field Strength
Frequency Response
FieldStrength(dBμV/m)measurement
enables a technician to assess whether
signals will be detected at a location with
sufficient power for good TV reception. The
antenna factors of the antenna used for
measurement can be compensated for to
facilitate easy measurement comparison.
Measured Data
Modulation Error Ratio (MER)
MER is the fundamental measurement in
digital TV broadcast systems. It quantifies
the modulation signal quality directly. It
is essential for managing signal margin
and the deterioration of equipment with
time, as well as for maintaining stable
broadcast services. MER is independent of
modulation type so MER measurements
can be easily compared.
Signal Analysis – Constellation and MER
This is the single most important signal quality
measurement. Poor MER leads to higher received
errors which can cause serious picture degradation.

Delay Profile
This function measures the difference in
time and frequency of multi-path signals
caused by reflections from obstacles or
from other transmitters. By measuring
the channel frequency response, the
multi-path effect or frequency selective
fading can be observed. It is important
that all signals from reflections or other
transmitters are received within the
guard interval to prevent inter-symbol
interference which will cause reception
degradation. Delay Profile measurement
is useful for adjusting the timing of SFN
repeaters to achieve this.
