The measurement tasks of the FMAB mainly cover the field of sound broadcasting and include comprehensive analysis of VHF transmitters, channel transposers and VHF/baseband converters. Since the stereo decoder with all its analysis functions can be separately used via the rear-panel input, measurements on FM receivers and stereo coders are also possible.
Three large illuminated LCD displays simultaneously read out the measured carrier frequency, modulation and modulation frequency, plus additional information about device status and settings. The clear front-panel layout, with softkeys and a few main function keys, makes for user-friendly operation. Previously complex measurements on FM stereo signals thus become very simple.
