Portable RBDS monitor
This handheld device (slightly smaller than a deck of cards) is a portable radio receiver with RDS/RBDS monitoring software. The unit can display frequency, signal strength, stereo and RDS status, PI (Program Identification), PTY (Program Type), PR (Programs Service Name) and RT (Radio Text). Stations can be selected by direct channel tuning or seek function. The Active Groups Screen and Group Inspector Screen show greater detail about the RDS stream down to individual bits and can warn when RDS data is invalid.
What the Pick Hits judges had to say:
"A very portable monitoring product."
"I like that it logs readings and shows bit-level data."
