AUTO is the normal spectrum analyzer scanning mode, triggering is not active.
NORMAL will display a new scan as soon as a signal in the scan causes a trigger event.
SINGLE will wait for a signal to cause a trigger event and display the scan.
LEVEL activates a keypad for entering the trigger level.
UP EDGE generates a trigger event when the input level goes from below the set trigger level to above the set trigger level
DOWN EDGE generates a trigger event when the input level goes from above the set trigger level to below the set trigger level
PRE|MID|POST TRIGGER is a three value toggle setting allowing to place the trigger position at the start, middle or end of the scan.

OFF disables any calculation
MIN HOLD sets the display to hold the minimum value measured.
MAX HOLD sets the display to hold the maximum value measured.
MAX DECAY sets the display to hold the maximum value measured for a certain amount of scans.
AVER 4 sets the amount of running averaging to 4.
AVER 16 sets the amount of running averaging to 16.
STORE TRACE writes the current measurement to the green trace.
CLEAR STORED removes the stored trace.
SUBTRACT STORED subtracts the stored trace from the current measurement.
NORMALIZE will store the current scan and subtract this stored scan from future measurements.
LIMIT x where x=1..6. Activates the input menu to set one of the maximum 6 limit line segments.
END FREQUENCY sets the end frequency for this limit line segment.
LEVEL sets the level of this limit line segment.
DISABLE disables this limit line segments.
WATERFALL displays the power level over time in a waterfall map.
SWEEPSETTINGS menu contains various settings on how to sweep the selected frequency or time span.
NORMAL sets the default sweeping mode
PRECISE sets the precise scanning mode.
FAST sets the fast sweeping mode.
SWEEP TIME sets the target time for a complete sweep in seconds.
SWEEP POINTS allows setting the number of sweep points: 51, 101, 145, 290 default
FAST SPEEDUP allows setting the acceleration factor for fast sweeping.
MARKER controls the markers on the display.
MODIFY MARKER allows selecting a marker and shows a submenu to modify the [:../MARKER:TYPE].
MARKEROPS allows setting the frequency display range based on the active marker
SEARCH MARKER allows positioning a non-tracking marker on signal maxima or minima.
MEASURE helps to quickly set the TinySA for certain measurements.
OFF switches of any measurement related setting and behavior and returns the TinySA to regular operation.
HARMONIC switches to a marker configuration for measuring the level of harmonics of a signal.
OIP3 switches to a marker configuration for measuring the Output IP3 level of a signal.
PHASE NOISE switches to a marker configuration for measuring phase noise of a signal.
SNR switches to a marker configuration for SNR measurement.
-3dB width switches to a marker configuration for -3dB width measurement.
AM sets various settings to optimize observations of an AM modulated signal.
FM sets various settings to optimize observations of an FM modulated signal.
THD enables the measurement of the THD defined as the percentage of energy in the harmonics versus the energy in the fundamental.
CHANNEL POWER enables ACP and channel power measurement.
LINEAR steps the internal attenuator through all attenuation levels and draws a green line showing the measured maximum level for each attenuation setting.
