Review Summary For : HP-8935 CDMA Service Monitor
Reviews: 1MSRP: 1500.00
The HP-8935 Service Monitor is a Repeater Techs best friend. Originally made for 700-800MHz CDMA Cellphone repeater testing this unit just so happens to cover 0-1000 MHZ, has full RX/TX CTCSS, TX tone 1 kc for setting radio and repeater deviation. The unit even has a frequency Counter, full over the air Spectrum Analyzer, tracking generator, AM/FM and SSB mod for TX and demod for RX . Has a modern yellow LCD screen (no CRT's here) and is super easy to use. Also has a builtin 70 watt rf dummy load with 3 different n ports for any combo of TX or rx or duplex. It is a bigger unit, but our radio team easily packs them up to our repeater sites. Weight is 37 lbs. These go on EBAY from $750 and up 2022 pricing.

Does Literally Everything testwise Time Owned: more than 12 months.
I own 2 of these 8935 units. Keep on on the bench and one ready to go to the sites.
I've owned several Motorola and a Cushman and played wirh my clubs IFR, but for the money and how recent and modern the HP8935 is, I would highly recommend snagging one. My club ARRG.ORG has three of these and a spare parts unit. All the modules, power supply etc. plug into a Isa type rack, so a dead module is changed out almost plug n play.
