The HP Hewlett Packard Agilent 8920B communication test set is a
full-function test set based upon the Agilent 8920A design but with
increased measurement speed, accuracy, and larger user memory (928 kbytes
standard). The 8920B uses PCMCIA memory cards for data storage and radio
test programs. The 8920B has the functionality, speed, and accuracy for
testing land mobile radios, cellular equipment, and other communications
systems while improving throughput and quality in manufacturing.

I don't profit from shipping. I like to "over-pack" with hard-foam
protective lining.  Only actual costs will be passed to the buyer. I insist
that all shipping is fully insured and insurance plus shipping is at the
buyer's expense.

Thank you for understanding!
