Product Description

The SDR-IQ is a 14-bit software defined radio receiver. It offers a broad range of spectrum analyzer and demodulation capabilities. The hardware samples the whole 0.0001-30 MHz band using a high performance, 14 bit analog to digital converter (ADC) running at 66.6 MHz. The digital data from the ADC is processed into I and Q format using a direct digital converter (DDC). The I and Q data is then sent to the PC for processing using a USB 2.0 interface. All of the demodulation and spectral functions are done on the PC side. The SDR-IQ comes with a High Frequency (HF) amplified front-end with switched attenuators, switched filters and 1Hz tuning. The SDR-IQ comes with the latest version of SpectraVue. It supports AM, WFM, USB, LSB, N-FM, DSB and CW with fully adjustable DSP Filter bandwidths and FFT sizes of 2048 to 2 million points.

RFSpace designed and built the SDR-IQ. The device is connected via the IF-out on my K3 and , thus, isolated from any xmit power which, in other situations, may damage the input of the SDR-IQ. This issue though is not new as it's the same issue as with mast mounted Gaasfets for EME, etc. Just make sure you use some sort of T/R if using an external antenna directly into the box, as the antenna.

Well built; extremely great, and easily accessed, Internet support with near-instant responses.
What can I do with it? Well, briefly, when into the K3, I use CWSkimmer to watch/scout for/decode CW signals on whatever band the K3 is on. If I change bands on the K3, I can have the program 'cwskimmer' change the SDR-IQ band, or leave it where it was.

If I put an external long-wire into the input of the SDR-IQ, I can see down around 20kHz all the way up through the HF bands. It is fun to scout for the VLF signals, then turn-on Demod and hear the signals too.

Now I find myself noticing band activity and clear spaces .... far too many possible uses for this extremely sensitive device to mention here. ..._._ ..

Does everything claimed for it and does it well. The supplied program, SpectraVue is quite complex and takes a while to learn to use
properly.

At first my results using the IQ were not satisfactory. That is until I added an ALA1530S+ Imperium Magnetic Broadband Active Loop Antenna. Which by the way almost cost as much as the IQ, but worth it. At the moment I have the Antenna mounted on a tripod inside my bedroom but will be re-positioning it outside with a rotor in a few days. I am not using the SpectraVue SW that came with it since it hung-up on me and I could not get it to work again. I tried several other free SW program and settled on SDR Console as my preference. This one does everything I want and after a few days have figured out how to use it. The IQ is well built and does everything I want and need in a SWL radio. Since I an also a Ham operator, I can listen to Mores code or several different modes of ham operations. I have a replica of my original crystal set on top of the IQ to show how far Radio Communications has come! With the IQ and the ALA1530S, I can now listen to my favorite AM radio stations any time day or night.
