If you want to send some more precise requirements (bandwidth, gain, type readout / output desired, etc.) I could give you a quote on a device through BEC Labs..

I'll look into more detail on specifications, and get back with you when I get something more solid. Any idea of a decent spectrum analyzer software that's both a good quality, and a good price? Thanks for the quick response time, guys.

However most computers use the audio board as the input for the analog signal and as such are limited to its frequency response. Those which use the audio board will not pass harmonics which could be a factor in even relatively low frequency signals. There are mid priced spectrum analyzer front end boards available as an aftermarket item you can plug in to your computer motherbord, these generally come with their own software based on their capabilities. Performance would be depenent on the system you obtain, costs start at around $500 and can go up to a few thousand.
Personally I prefer a stand alone system when it comes to test equipment. Hardware is designed specificly to do the task you require of it. Hwever most investigators, unless they have another reason for doing so (such as an electronics business like I do) could not justify the purchase of a piece of equipment like a spectrum analyzer. ( Mine was a refurbished model for $8,900.) Unfortunately there just is no inexpensive way to do that level of work with accuracy.

Well, thanks again for the speedy replies and excellent information. As always, it's great to hear from the couple of you that seem to always have answers for me!

BTW, all analysis of evidence for private, non-commercial cases is done at no charge.
