  • 137.5 MHz NOAA/APT Filter/Preamp

    1.00 out of 5

    Uputronics filtered preamps for improved reception on 137.5Mhz.

    This is a cost effective SAW based unit which give excellent performance gains.

    All Uputronics preamps are compatible with most USB SDR Dongles such as the Airspy. You can power them from either bias tee (This item is 100% compatible with the Airspy bias-tee) or a simple USB minicable (Purchased separately). Bias tee/USB voltage is 5V max.

    This unit is a small filter and preamp designed to go between a software defined radio receiver and an antenna. Using a SAW bandpass filter and a low noise amplifier (LNA), it stops out of band intermodulation while providing additional gain for increased sensitivity. The LNA is before the SAW filter. To block strong commercial FM signals a high pass filter is installed before the LNA.

    The LNA used is a MiniCircuits PSA4-5043+ which provides at least 21dB of gain. To stop out of band intermodulation an 137.5Mhz SAW bandpass filter, which has a 7.6MHz bandwidth is also present. The insertion loss of this filter is approximately 1.4dB, which does increase the overall noise figure of the unit to 0.75dB. Connectors are SMA female both sides.

  • Airspy HF+ SDR

    0 out of 5

    The Software Defined Radio revolution brought great flexibility in VHF and UHF reception. Today we offer the best wide band receivers which address these needs. We also provide a high performance extension for weak-signal wide band reception on HF – something other competing solutions fail to address efficiently.

    Airspy HF+ is a paradigm shift in high performance HF radio design. It is a joint effort between Airspy, Itead Studio and a top-tier semiconductor company to build a state of the art SDR for HF and VHF bands.

    Like most high-end HF receivers, the HF+ uses very high dynamic range ADC’s and front-ends. But unlike the current offerings in the market, it also brings more frequency agility by using high performance passive mixers with an excellent polyphase harmonic rejection structure. No external band aid filters are required like the lower end HF receivers, which makes it the ideal companion for light portable high performance operation.

    Both the architecture and level of integration achieved in this design allow us to bring top performance reception at a very affordable price.

    Featured specifications:

    • State of the art SDR for HF and VHF
    • Covers 9 kHz to 31 MHz plus 60 to 260 MHz
    • 660 kHz Alias and Image-free output
    • 18 bit DDC
    • 0.5 ppm high precision, low noise clock
    • No drivers required! (plug-and-play)
    • Best Noise Reduction on the market!
    • Supported by SDR# – the gold standard program! (and other SW)
