Description

 

The Expert Electronics SunSDR2 DX transceiver based on the well-known SunSDR2 PRO transceiver with several hardware improvements. It is a 100W-HF; 50W-6M; 8W-2M transceiver, very compact, has a separate connector for active cooling and improved supply system, meaning it’s perfectly suited for DXpeditions and contest operators. Also, we’ve added a separate connector for an external ATU, thus SunSDR2 DX has all the functionality you got used to in our radios and even more. Improved hardware along with the ExpertSDR2 software makes this high-performance SDR transceiver the perfect base station. The evident choice for a true contester!

Expert Electronics SunSDR2 DX Improvements:

  • 100 watt transmit power on HF, 50 watt on 50 MHz!
  • New ATU connector for future antenna tuner option
  • External Fan connector added
  • HPF for VHF (100 MHz) to eliminate strong out-of-band stations coming from HF
  • LPF for HF (70 MHz) to eliminate strong out-of-band stations coming from VHF
  • Improved VHF LNA (PGA103+ chip)
  • New high-performance built-in stereo audio codec 24 bit with 114 dB dynamic range
  • Anderson Powerpole power connector
  • Ground connector added
  • Sturdy DIP-type ExtCtrl connector
  • Improved PCB topology
  • Lower power consumption and improved power dissipation

Expert Electronics SunSDR2 DX Main Capabilities:

  • Independent RX path based on DDC (Direct Down-Conversion) architecture
  • Independent TX path based on DUC (Direct Up-Conversion) architecture
  • Output power: 100W on HF, 50W on 6M and 8W on 2M
  • 2 software RXs + SubRX for each of them (4 slices total) + independent wideband Bandscope up to 80 MHz
  • Remote control operation, using it, you connect PTT and CW-key to the E-Coder panel. Microphone and E-Coder are connected to the remotely set up PC
  • TCI interface for seamless connection with third-party software like SDC (with its own Skimmer), LogHX, SWISSLOG and RUMlog, more are coming
  • Professional TX processing module provides the most advanced tuning capability for voice operation
  • ExtCTRL connector to control external devices with 8 powerful keys with open collector
  • ALC connector for external power amplifiers*
  • Supports use of VHF transverters**
  • An opportunity to use the transceiver as a signal generator via DAC OUT connector (SMA connector)
  • An opportunity to use external filters in the middle of the RF path, using ADC IN and RX OUT (SMA connector)
  • Minimal delay in CW mode (about 10 ms)
  • Input for external 10 MHz reference oscillator
  • An opportunity to use the transceiver in SO2V mode
  • Full duplex or half duplex modes***
  • Antenna switch with 2 HF antenna connectors and separate VHF antenna connector (Mini UHF connectors)
  • Internal power-meter for HF and VHF bands and SWR-meter for HF band
  • Ethernet LAN interface provides a fast and reliable connection to PC

* ** *** These functions are supported by the transceiver’s hardware, but is not implemented in the ExpertSDR2 software. They will be supported in the future ExpertSDR2 software releases.

Expert Electronics ExpertSDR2 Software:

The ExpertSDR2 software package is used to control the SDR transceiver. In receiving mode the software provides two independent receiving channels with up to 312 kHz bandwidth. Each receiver has its own sub receiver. ExpertSDR2 runs under Windows XP/7/8/10 x32 or x64, Linux Ubuntu x64 and MacOS (MacOS currently beta). Minimum hardware requirement Intel Core i3 1.6GHz or higher, video card supporting OpenGL 1.5 and RAM 256 MB or more.

Expert Electronics ExpertSDR2 System Requirements:

  • 2 or 4 core CPU Intel Core i3 or Core i5;
  • 8 GB RAM;
  • 40 GB free space on the HDD/SSD for the ExpertSDR2 and accompanied programs;
  • 17′ or bigger monitor;
  • video card with OpenGL 1.5 or higher;
  • ExpertSDR2 supports Windows 7-10 32/64 bit, Linux (Ubuntu/Kubuntu 18.04 x64), and macOS 10.14 Mojave and higher.

Expert Electronics SunSDR2 DX box contains:

  • SunSDR2 DX Transceiver
  • LAN-cable 1.8m for connecting to local network
  • Power cable 2.0m for connecting to power supply
  • Two 6.3mm phono male to 3.5mm phono female adapters to connect a headset to the radio
  • Mini UHF (male) to SO239 (UHF/PL female) pigtail adapter with 30 cm  RG58 coax.

RTLSDR through the eyes of an SWL observer over the past 8-10 years

SDR radio became popular in Hungary around 2012-2013 thanks to the RTL chip versions appearing among DVB-T Chinese USB TV receivers. Back then you couldn’t get these devices in Hungary, you had to order them from China. Since then the situation has changed a lot here, too.

Introducing the new 5W Dual Band Digital Transceiver – Yaesu FT3DE!

The new Yaesu FT3DE provides reliable 5W RF power output in compact design and light weight from factor - W62mm x H100mm x D32.5mm/ 282g. Battery power-saving settings are available for each frequency band with TX output power level (5W/ 2.5W/ 1W/ 0.3W) individually selectable. Even in a compact body, the user can enjoy loud and clear C4FM voice quality from 700mW of audio power. Real Dual Band Operation (V+V, U+U, V+U, U+V) are available with two independent receivers, and the FT3DR/E supports simultaneous C4FM digital monitoring for both the A and B bands (C4FM/C4FM standby).

SDRplay is pleased to announce the release of SDRuno v1.3. SDRplay is pleased to announce the release of SDRuno v1.3. This is a major upgrade to SDRuno, which adds a number of important new features and is intended for all RSP models (RSP1, RSP1A, RSP2, RSP2pro and RSPduo)
PDN (Portable Digital Node) function for the FTM-400 and FTM-100 We are excited to inform that the PDN (Portable Digital Node) function for the FTM-400 and FTM-100 series is now available. This firmware is now available at Yaesu official website: http://www.yaesu.com
Raspberry Pi 3 + SDRe receivers It is clear that an excellent way to attract newcomers to the radio hobby is via the Raspberry Pi plus an RSP.  SDRplay has made available a downloadable SD Card image which is ideal for this.
