Product Details

A synthesized ultra-light, ultra-small 8-channel receiver with advanced DSP signal detection, noise control and glitch suppression algorithms. Available in 72/75 MHz and 50/53MHz (HAM).

  • Dual conversion, full range. Ultra narrowband (5kHz or better)
  • Smallest and the lightest 8-channel receiver in the world
  • Excellent sensitivity and IP3 performance
  • Synthesized "crystal-less" operation
