I want to find a proper device to measure 5G Extreme High Frequencies

alejandro.franco.portillo 2 years ago updated by Suzie Que 2 months ago 16

I have been suggested to buy the HF-ANALYSER HF38B.

I am not an expert in this sort of devices but it is mention that the top peak read the this analyser can measure is 2.7Ghz while the standard 5G Broadband expected in my town is 26Ghz which it makes it 10 times higher.

Can anyone please advise a suitable device for 5G Frequencies measurement.

Kind regards



We aren't aware of any commercially-available meters for 5G yet.  I know companies are working on them, but there isn't a meter that I can recommend at this time for 5G.  I'm sure there will be meters soon.  I really, really, hope so.  It is needed!


Wow I see. I am thinking to buy from the other side the 'Acousticom 2 Acoustimeter RF Detector Radio Frequency Microwave Meter RF Meter' which spectrum frequency detector is 200Mhz to 8000Mhz but I wouldn't like to invest on this if the frequencies very soon will be a lot higher and my device wont detect them.

Some websites are announcing this device is able to detect 5G signals but in my country 'NZ' the starting frequency for 5G announced will be  '26 GHz' or 26,000 Mhz so there is no chance this device will perceive them in my opinion. Does that sound fair to say in your view?




I almost bought the Acoustimeter AM-10 today.  It's a very expensive meter and I would be very disappointed if it can't measure 5G either.  Looking at the frequency spectrum in can measure and the 5G frequency possibilities here in Australia it does look like it won't be able to measure it at all.  I'm going to send an message to EMFields and ask them if and when they plan to measure 5G.


Post what they responded. I am trying to buy a detector for 5G.


The Acustimeter cannort measure 5G


Do you have any update on available 5G meters?



I am also from far north NZ and would like to have an update on when a new meter is out to measure 5G .. I have the acousticom meter which is a great wee meter and am hoping to get the next meter through this same company 


It already exists but it is very expensive...   it is just like they don't want you to be able to measure 5G radiation on a commercial level before it is too late...

Here is a list of what is available in mid-2019:


Wavecontrol SMP2 + WPF40 field probe - 40Ghz $3000~


Wawemon RF40 - 40Ghz  $1400~

Nardalert S3 - 50Ghz $1700~

EME Guard - 40Ghz $1800~


any updates on 5g meters? Gigahertz solutions says there are some available from Rohde & Schwarz, Anritsu and Narda-STS. Can anyone find any links from them or prices?


I just found the "Acousticom 2" ($180 US) which claims to detect 5G radiation. It measures 200 - 8000mhz  (up to 8Ghz) It uses the same RF detector as their top of the line "Acoustimeter".($370US) on Amazon

Pace: 500 measurements

per second.

Sensitivity: (peak display): 0.01 - 6.00v/m (equals to 0.5 to 1000,000_uw/m2

Battery: 9V (can use rechargeable)

Low Battery Indicator light (normally green for on, turns to red)

Size: 110 x 63 x 21mm

Weight: 140g. (including battery)

NOTE:  I just found one I like better on Amazon. It has a better display and seems more user friendly. Check out the TriField TF2

. It also claims to detect 5G ($168US) Seller on Amazon "TriField" has a short video to view as well.


the Acousticom 2 will NOT measure 5G.  Since it only goes to 8Ghz that is far far far bwlow 5G frequencies which are around 30 Ghz

Hello. We unknowingly bought a house under a cell phone tower. I am determined to move now but don't want to make the same mistake. I want to make sure I get a meter that is accurate for 5G if possible just to not buy something now that will be antiquated by next year, however we want to move this coming year so need something soon. I have read a bunch and been recommended the HF35C RF Meter: HF35C RF Meter. It is directional but the range does not seem to be as good as the Acoustimeter for a similar USD price. Any help would be awesome! I will also likely buy the TriField just for EMF testing.

hi! In need of a 5G meter. Any leads in 2020? Thanks! 

Hi I have just posted a link from my ebay to show the latest I have found that does measure 5g .. would like others thoughts on this meter please thank you


Hey Suzie,

Unfortunately the Safe n Sound Pro 2 does not detect 5g.  We have a lot of people asking and saying it is but the meter can not read that high of a reading.  Its a common mistake people are making.  If you would like more information please feel free to ask.


Thank you Andrew for this update -
