How good is the TDR?
I had an open circuit appear in a run of LMR coax burried underground of over 200 feet. Using
Don't forget the optional protective case for your AIM UHF analyzer.
The case uses a water-jet custom cut high density foam insert in a sturdy black molded locking shell. There are cutouts for your calibration loads and adapters as well as the Power Supply and the USB cable.

We DO NOT ship a software CDROM with the analyzer.
*Note: you may download the software for the AIM UHF now and it will work in "demo" mode until your AIM UHF Arrives.
