Kijelzője komplexebb és 3xnagyobb a korábbi A22E rádiónál. Kezelése egyszerű. Még nem repültem vele, kíváncsi vagyok teljesítményére. Remélem az időszakos repülőfelülvizsgálaton elfogjadják. Azt hiszem jól döntöttem.

Blogger’s Review of the Wouxun KG-UVN1

This radio appeared in the Wouxun product lineup early 2019, in Hungary however it only had its debut in March 2020.
With my experience gathered over the years, I am actually happy that this time I am not reviewing a brand new device. Why? Usually, when new devices are put to market, despite all the extensive testing, the firmware always has some room for polishing. A one year old radio on the other hand usually has a firmware version already updated and bugfixed, and you can do without hunting for patches, firmware update or cope with menus full of irritating small bugs. I believe, this one year has been worth the wait.

SDRplay webinars and video reviews

We are informing you about some news from SDR World: about SDRplay's series of webinars, and about lots of video reviews.

What's new in the SDR world We have already shown you one of our latest favourites: the new SDRPlay RSPdx. Now you can hear and read about others' opinion about it.
A mini computer is enough to set up an SDR receiver

 

These micro computers are strong enough, no wonder radio hams make good use of them for DIY projects.
SDRplay have also compiled an image file with software needed for using your SDR. You just need to copy it to a Micro SD card and you can start listening on the radio bands.

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.
