No connection to AIRSPY other than using their products.

The AirSpy SDR coupled with SDR# SW can be used as a quite capable spectrum
analyzer.  So much so that I recommend it to clients who don't have the
thousands of $$ to spend on a dedicated spectrum analyzer.  SDR#, which is
freeware, comes with an application termed "Spectrum Spy".  It empowers the
AirSpy SDR to operate as a spectrum over a span as small as 10 MHz up to
the full span of 24 MHz through 1.8 GHz.  It's spiff, to say the least and
the cost is only around $200 for the SDR, itself, and, as I've mentioned,
Spectrum Spy comes with a free download and installation of SDR#.
