Best Mid-Range
Best Inexpensive

We spent 23 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top picks for this wiki. Any ham radio operator worth their salt should have a quality frequency counter on hand. They're fantastic for ensuring that your channels are properly tuned in, allowing you to experience crystal clear audio every single time. They can also help diagnose and fix problems with walkie-talkies and other short-wave transmitters, so you and your team can stay on the same page, even at a distance. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best radio frequency counter on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

January 11, 2019: The list includes both dedicated models (usually of the handheld variety) and those that are part of a larger radio unit. Hopefully, this makes the list suitable for both the experienced user and the one that's just beginning their foray into radio. Additionally, there should be models included that are as useful for analyzing walkie-talkies as they are hard-wired radios.
