RF Scanner

RF Scanner is designed to use external hardware to scan for frequencies that are currently present or appear over time in your venue. Any frequency over a certain dBm Threshold will be written to a .CSV file that can be imported into RF Guru or used in any program that can open/import .CSV files.


  • Duration in Minutes – The length of your test. If you're interested in collecting data over the duration of your show, start the test at what would be considered show time, and set the duration of the length of your show. The range of frequencies will be scanned and hits over the threshold will be recorded.

  • Start Frequency – The lowest frequency that you want to start the test with.

  • End Frequency – The highest frequency that you want to stop the test with.

  • Scan Device – The hardware device you are using to perform the frequency scan.

  • Report Folder – Where RF Scanner will create it's .CSV files. Each scan will be created with a unique file name using the date and time of the scan.

  • Threshold – the value in dBm that RF Scanner will use to record hits. Any value below the threshold will not be recorded. Any value above the threshold will be recorded.


The chart will show you the frequencies being scanned and the dBm value that the system is picking up. In addition, there will be a note of the range of frequencies your specific hardware device can scan. For example: “Device can scan 665 to 691 MHz” Using the Start and End Frequency, you can select the entire range of your hardware or a subset of frequencies that you are interested in.

Below the chart is a scroll bar that you can use to zero in to the frequencies displayed in the chart. In addition, the bottom two edit boxes allow you to select the beginning and ending frequency the chart will display regardless of what you are scanning.
