Description

Unique and the most advanced "combo" controller for Antenna Switching, SteppIR control, Rotator control and automatic Power Amplifier support available today. Microham Station Master is a unique controller on the market designed mainly for small or moderate, multiple antenna, single rotator/SteppIR or UltraBeam stations. Provides radio control, antenna switch control, band pass filters switching, selective SteppIR or UltraBeam tuning, computer controlled rotator interface, interface for automatic power amplifiers, sequencer for receiving antennas and many additional features.

The interface is suitable for connecting any type of transceiver that has a CAT port. For example, Yaesu, Kenwood, Icom, Elecraft, Ten-Tec.

Microham Station Master box contains: product, installation CD, power connector (the power cord must be made by you), USB A/B cable, clip on ferrit rfi filter, PS/2 cable (mini DIN 6), RCA/RCA cable, DB15 male connector. 

The device is compatible with a wide range of radios, so you need to create a radio-specific cable, it is not supplied in the box. If necessary, we can manufacture these cables and you can ask for our unique quotation! Cabling and device setup can be downloaded here: http://www.microham.com/contents/en-us/d137.html

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.
