The RF Detector, like most bug detectors, detect radio frequency signals sent from listening devices such as electronic bugs hidden in objects, or covertly placed in rooms. This RF Detector is able to sweep a room or area for privacy invading bugs and warn you about active RF transmitters.
The RF Detector can detect RF emissions and show the signal strength on its unique bar graph display. This is extremely helpful when you want to detect an active listening device, and attempt to locate it by observing the increase in the listening devices signal output. As you physically come closer to the listening device, you can verify the transmission signal strength using the RF Detectors graphic indicator.
Please note: Most users of this RF Detector are not consumers but professionals with a technical background and or scientific understanding of the radio signals encountered.
In addition, its graphic indicator is made up of 8 segments to help determine the signal level of the radio field emission, giving the user the ability to track down the proximity of audio surveillance devices, as well as detect cellular phones.
The RF Detector will also display the operating mode during bug sweeps and rf sweeps. The RF Detector provides a wide spectrum of measurement for radio signal analysis applications including RF transmission and microwave frequency identification at the greatest possible distance. Once a transmitter has been located and found, the RF Detector pinpoints and locks onto the precise radio or microwave frequency broadcasting your private conversations. The captured transmitter can then be used for disinformation purposes.
