G'day Rusty, I'm contemplating purchasing one of these in the coming weeks, I think this would suit the limited time of boots on the ground work I have.
Do you have any idea what the most efficient analyzing software is currently available?

Hey Pertys80 , Izotope rx7 is the best one I've used and would recommend it to anyone . It is computer intensive so make sure you check the specs before buying .

Below is an overview of what it can do . It is meant for music but it's a repair tool which means it has tools that willl come in handy like noise reduction . Ultimately it's the spectrogram view that will help you the most .

Hey Pertsy
If you're on a budget I use Wavepad Sound editor. It's available as a free download and was recommended to me by Yowiedan and it's used by a few other guys aswell.
It covers the basics including the spectogram. You can amplify and remove noise etc. It to is very computer intensive for bigger files i.e. 24hr long audio files but if you split them into 6hr files it should be better (I'm yet to try it).
Izotope does look like a better program with a better spectogram it depends on how much you want to be able to do.
Cheers
