The digital down-converter provides 24 selectable output bandwidths ranging from 20 kHz to 4 MHz. The receiver's selectivity can be adjusted with 1 Hz resolution. The bandpass audio filter's low and high cut-off frequencies are graphically adjustable, as is the notch filter and noise blanker.
The parameters of all three independent channels can be set separately, allowing each to be recorded simultaneously and independently. Recording and playback are also provided at the output of the digital down-converter, where an entire 4 MHz spectrum band can be recorded for later demodulation. Pre-buffering prevents signal loss at the start of a transmission.
A flexible scheduler function allows unattended recording of each channel at specified dates and times, and the built-in support for HFCC, EIBI and user-defined frequency databases ensures effortless storage and maintenance of frequencies.
There is also a unique "pause" function, the world's first for a shortwave receiver, making it possible to pause reception and resume it when convenient.
This is very useful in case the receiver is left unattended for a period of time.
A "toolbox" full of various test and measurment tools, such as frequency error, SINAD, THD and modulation meters, logger and scheduler, complement the entire package and make it possible to use this product as a measuring receiver, replacing much more expensive (and often less capable or accurate) conventional test equipment.
The software-defined architecture allows easy software upgrades for demodulation and decoding requirements. Component variations and aging are greatly diminished in a software-defined receiver, assuring long-term premium performance.
Networking version, making it possible to remotely control the receiver over LAN or Internet, is also available.
