Thank you all for your reply's!
It is for personal use, not a business. The budget it is very tight. I guess
I can't find anything less that 2000-3000 euros even a second hand or a
The main problem is that I'm starting from scratch...
I found http://www.anapico.com/index.php/products/phase-noise-test-systems
and the cheapest model (apph6000-is400) fits my needs (-160 dBc @ 100 Hz it
is low enough) but it is too expensive (an outrageous of 18000 euros!).
Their advantage, as in others, is to be a self contained analyzer with
I don't know the price range of the Holzworth analyzer's but surely they are
affordable compared with the one above. The model HA7402B needs two tunable
LO, which I don't have, so a lot of investment has to be done.
I can consider any setup as long as the above requirements are fulfilled and
it is an affordable solution otherwise I've to wait for gather enough funds
for this kind of investment.
