ColibriDDC with Band Pass Filter

Availability:

In stock (can be backordered)


The ColibriDDC is a compact SDR receiver covering 0.09 to 60 MHz and with external filters capable of  receiving frequencies up to 800 MHz. Direct digital signal sampling using a high speed digital to analog converter results in very high performance from a light and small package. The receiver is controlled via LAN and perfect for remote control over a local network or over internet using the RPI Server.

This version of ColibriDDC comes with the optional HF octave Band Pass Filter installed. In addition the BPF board also features a +10 dB preamp plus a -20 dB attenuator. The BPF option will improve the already great ColibriDDC making it a top performing receiver for situations when big signals limits the use of wideband receivers.
