RF & Telecom Engineering and Testing

Cablesoft Engineering (CSE) is a RF spectrum analysis,

and telecommunications consulting and testing company.


We provide Cable Television FCC Proof of Performance testing including NTSC-M analog testing to full FCC Part 76 specifications & full QAM analysis to ANSI/SCTE 40 2016 specifications. Cable Television technical 'due diligence' reporting services are also provided for system acquisition or sale.


We also specialize in RF spectrum analysis including calibrated field strength measurements for radio, television and wireless communications systems. We provide off-air ATSC (8-VSB) testing and reception analysis, RF interference characterization and source location to 6.2 GHz including satellite terrestrial interference. See our Services and Repair Services pages for more detail.


CSE maintains full RF spectrum analysis capabilities from 9 Khz to 6.2 GHz. We have dedicated spectrum analysis equipment specific to RF characterization including a 'real time spectrum analyzer' (9 kHz to 6.2 GHz), plus other spectrum analyzers for specific application such as ATSC/8-VSB signal analysis. A computerized signal survey program developed by CSE correlates predicted versus actual reception conditions at a specific location for further analysis.


CSE maintains a business office located in the scenic Loess Hills of southwestern Iowa, and is just outside the greater Council Bluffs, IA/Omaha, NE area.
