Bob,
Thank you for your thoughts. As mentioned in my first post, this was a theoretical situation. I was just curious as to the FCC guidelines regarding using such an analyzer " out of band". Fortunately this has never occurred as there are always other hams that are more than eager to lend a hand to any one needing help.

Best Regards,

Perhaps this is not the best place to ask this question.

Can some one please advise which forum would be more appropriate?

An unusual question to be sure.

if a ham with a technician license wishes to string up a 40 or 80 meter dipole for the purpose of listening only, this is acceptable.

But, can the same technician use a hand held antenna analyzer to tune that same 40 or 80 meter antenna for better reception?

I have done some digging, but have not found anything that specifically addresses this. However, my gut tells me that because an analyzer is in fact a signal generator, and generates a signal however low power, would still be out of band on 40 or 80 meters if used by a technician without a control operator of higher license.

Could I please get some feedback for this theoretical question?
