Ham Radio 2013 – The International Exhibition for Radio Amateurs, HAM RADIO 2013, was held June 28-30, 2013 in Friedrichshafen, with exciting new models and products! – Here are some photos and news from the tour…! – FT-1DR FDMA Mode like NEXEDGE™ Kenwood’s or IDAS™ Icom’s Digital PMR’s Radios. See the new FT1-DR brochure – Fiera di Friedericshafan 2013: un report con varie foto e descrizione di alcune novità – See more & Link below!
FDM-DUO a new SDR rtx made in Italy – ELAD has displayed his “little SDR Tranceiver” at Ham Radio Friedrichshafen 2013. Quite interesting concept to have a stand alone QRP rig at 192kHz sampling, combined with an extended SDR if you use it with a Computer.
It is a Direct Sampling SDR receviver (is an RF Sampler) with a DDC on a FPGA, and a Cortex ARM DSP module for filtering and demodulation in stand-alone mode. In RX and TX directions it is a fully SDR technology. QRP trasmitter 5 W Output Power – CAT Control via USB-2 port dedicated. (please click image to enlarge)
In other words: you can take it with you as a self-sustained 192kHz SDR narrow band modes QRP tranceiver (Sideband/CW/AM). –
At home, attached to a faster CPU (computer with FDM-SW1 software o so), you can run it at its full bandwidth of 6144kHz sample rate and use wider bandwidth RX/TX modes, inc. DSB, AM Sync, FM, RTTY, DRM, WB FM+RDS.

FDM-DUO Coming Soon – ! A meno che non costerà meno di 800 Euro/1100$, più le spese di spedizione, per ora preferirei ottenere un consolidato QRP Elecraft KX3 ( L’Italia dell’eccellenza nel Software Defined Radio va apprezzata per i successi di alto livello avuti, ma qui … ben tre porte USB-2 sul retro del DUO (1RX-1TX e 1CAT), impone di capirne il perché e gli sviluppi del prototipo)! … il team Elad ci sorprenderà!

Yaesu and its “D-Star” DV competitor FT-1DR & the HF FTdx-1200
FT-1DR V/U HT the Yaesu C4FM DV competitor 144/430 FDMA and FM modes. Tthe new HT digital was not compatible with a D-STAR DV standard, and the repeaters available for it only some areas recently.
Digiata C4FM FDMA & Analog FM, in 4 communication modes: 1) V/D Mode: Simultaneous Voice/Data Mode (6.25kHz voice + 6.25kHz data & ec code, bandwidth is used) – 2) Voice FR Mode: Voice Full Rate Mode (uses the entire 12.5kHz for digital voice – 3) Data FR Mode: High-speed 9.6 kbps Data Communication Mode (uses the entir 12.5kHz…..) – 4) Analog FM Mode – AMS (Automatic Mode Select) is available.
FT-1D news: The built-in worldwide standard AX.25 Data TNC Modem permits uncomplicated APRS® (Automatic Packet Reporting System) operation.- More useful information & GPS logger is stored on the high capacity micro SD card (Maximum 32GB) – Rx covers 504 kHz – 999.900 MHz (A Band), 108 MHz – 580 MHz (B Band), continuous reception for Short-wave, FM/AM broadcasts, and more features… see the new brochure link below!
List Price: $600,00 Your Price: $539,95 USD (Universal Radio) !!
[Note] !!! The FDMA C4FM (4-Level FSK) is a Frequency Division Multiple Access (FDMA) methodology whereby one user accesses a channel frequency at any one point in time. (i.e. accesses via the frequency domain)… …!
like NEXEDGE™ Kenwood’s Digital PMR or IDAS™ Icom’s Digital PMR radios! – (2005/2007: Forms a technical alliance with Kenwood, Icom, Zetron Inc & CTE International etc. to jointly research to dPMR digital two-way radios – narrow 12.5 kHz and very narrow 6.25 kHz bandwidth channels )
