This 11-Band All-Mode QRP Transceiver is made in Europe and combines SDR/DSP “Direct Conversion” Technology with simple operation.
The SKY-SDR radio comes with knobs, buttons, and a multi-line display. It does not require a computer for operation.
The radio has nearly all the features of larger, more expensive SDR transceivers and is well suited for the high-end QRP and portable user.
Its state-of-the-art RX is fitted with all typical DSP features and functions, including user-definable, razor-sharp filters, Noise Reduction (NR),
Noise Blanker (NB), Notch Filter (NF), adjustable AGC time-constant, and audio Equalizer (for RX and TX).
The built-in BANDSCOPE displays a 48 kHz spectrum, +/-24khZ from the operating frequency, and functions on TX as well as on RX.
This is unique in this price class.
Another unique feature is its Differential-ADC, and Dual-DSP.
Together these unique features assure exceptionally low noise on receive, which especially beneficial on the lower bands (160-40m).
The SKY-SDR comes with a hand microphone, has a speech processor, TX audio equalizer, and its transmitter is very clean.
It includes an SWR and Power Meter, built in Keyer (A/B Mode) and dual-mode CW (CW/CW-Reverse). AM, FM and DIGI Modes are also supported.
The radio has a USB CAT-Connection (with original FTDI chip), and LINE IN/OUT for DIGI Modes.
IN SUMMARY: a very unique and intriguing QRP Radio for serious QRP operators.
