New Mobile Bands Feature Available in MESA® Update

Cookeville, TN, March 25, 2022 – REI has released a new MESA® firmware update (version 1.1.17) with a new Mobile Bands feature. Discrete Bands displays enabled Bands simultaneously in the same spectrogram view. This spectrogram display shows only the custom spans the user wants to see.

Mobile Bands frequencies can be customized to desired spans in the
Mobile Bands Edit screen. In this example, some bands were renamed
and 4 bands (4G LTE, CDMA 3G, Band 4, and 2.4 WiFi BT) were
Enabled to display.

Here Mobile Bands shows the 4 custom bands Enabled in the Edit screen.
The orange border indicates the CDMA 3G band is selected. Discrete Spectrums was then selected.

Discrete Spectrums displays a spectrogram of the enabled bands. Here the
Average Trace (blue trace) and Waterfall features were also selected.  

Discrete Bands are beneficial anytime multiple frequency spans need to be shown together in a spectrogram.

Other changes included in this update:

  • Improved Mobile Bands Edit Screen
  • A new default range is specified for the 5GHz Mobile Band
  • Quick Mute – activated by pressing and holding the speaker icon
  • More file naming options

The free firmware update is available to download here. Update instructions are included in the download.
