Explanation: Assuming the context is the monitoring of radio signals, as in another of asker's questions today. It refers to a special radio receiver that operates over a wide and continuous frequency range and can detect/decode a wide variety of modulation/coding schemes used to convey information. Unauthorized use of these receivers is illegal in many countries, since they can be used to invade people's privacy.
