Description

New QRP SDR Transceiver manufactured in Europe!
(Sold as a Kit) - side panels need attaching when purchased - (screwdriver supplied).

The SKY-SDR has most of the  DSP features  of larger hf transceivers - direct conversion, razor-sharp-adjustable filters, noise reduction, noise blanker, audio equalizer,
etc. and even a built-in bandscope that works on receive and on transmit.   Its clean transmitter has a speech processor, audio equalizer and even comes with a hand mic at no extra cost.
The SKY-SDR's low noise,  high dynamic range  front end won't crunch, even if you turn on the preamplifier on 80 or 40 meters at night.
