Scout Image Optolectronics Scout

The Scouttm is the latest advancement in handheld frequency recorders that excels at finding and recording frequencies for security, law enforcement, and recreational monitoring applications. The Scout frequency recorder is a revolutionary device that can record up to 400 unique frequencies and store them into memory. The Scout can also record up to 255 hits on each frequency in memory.

The Scout is similar to a conventional frequency counter, in that it measures the frequency of any transmission from 10MHz to 1.4 GHz.

However, the Scout distinguishes itself from a frequency counter by being able to differentiate between random noise and coherent RF transmissions. This exclusive feature developed by Optoelectronics is called Digital Filter and Auto Capture (Pat. Pend.) It's this feature that allows the Scout to record frequency transmissions automatically.

When connected to a AOR AR8200, AR8000, AR2700, PRO-2005 or PRO-2006 (equipped with the OptoScan 456 computer interface modification), Pro-2035 or Pro-2042 (equipped with OS-535 computer interface modification) or CI-V receivers (ICOM's IC-R10, R7000, R7100, and R9000) it will automatically tune the receiver to the frequency it records. This feature is called Reaction Tuning (Pat. Pend.). The Scout sends the proper command code to the receiver to place the unit in remote operation. Any frequency that passes the filter that is captured will be sent to the receiver. The frequencies may also be recalled from the memory of the Scout to tune the receiver.
