STAMPFL mini swRX and swRX - Two analog Shortwave Receivers with Touchscreen – The STAMPFL Receiver is still in its experimental stadium …. and is not, comparable to a DSP KWZ-30, Reuter or Perseus receiver - STAMPFL Morse keys was founded by Heinz Stampfl HB9KOC in 2005 and is now the first Swiss manufacturer of Morse keys .
An Assembly kit for the near future is in planing - The technology used is analog (exception of the TFT Display and DDS) with IF 10.7 MHz e 455kHz. - MODULATION, SPAN and ATT can be selected using the touchscreen display.
I due ricevitori HF swRX’s della STAMPFL Svizzera, sono di tipo analogico (con esclusione del Display TFT e del DDS) con IF a 10.7 MHz e 455 kHz, sono dotati in ingresso di Preselettore con toroidi T-50 e poi di Filtro a quarzo in 1st IF . Non sono comparabili con ricevitori più blasonati tipo KWZ-30 DSP oppure Perseus SDR.
Questi STAMPFL swRX e mini swRX sono attualmente in fase sperimentale (vedere link al sito web), essi hanno suscitato un certo interesse nel suo complesso per il tipo di filosofia del progetto, che dovrebbe portare anche alla fornitura in Kit. – Qui sotto il Modello swRX più grande, però anche esso sempre in fase sperimentale!

The TS-990S has the “overwhelmingly highest quality” receiver among the TS series
TS-900 (1973) the all-band SSB transceiver is making history its state-of-the-art tecnology. – All major electronic circuits are wired on easily removed or installed circuit board (is costructed modularly). – Designed for operation on SSB, CW, and FSK, the TS-900 delivers more than 150 watts PEP output! (click to enlarge!)
TS-990S & IC-7700 inside views – Kenwood 990′s a main receiver with a down-conversion 8.248 MHz 1st IF and employs a double-conversion system. The sub receiver which incorporates the TS-590S receiver architecture.
Kenwood TS-990S – the RF front-end contains selectable Band-pass Filters (covered by the screen on the picture) – The double balanced grounded switch type 1st mixer works by the principle of reduces signal distorsion. – The five built-in 1st IF Roofing filters ahead of the 1st IF stage to eliminate overloading caused by strong signals just outside the fixed bandpass filters or of the Preselector manually adjustable -
Kenwood’s Preselector [P-SEL] selecting the narrow bandwidth tunable filter attenuates the interfering signal which has 2 to 3 MHz separation from the target frequency. -
Icom IC-7700 uses a duble conversion system composed of a D-MOS FET 1st mixer and Icom’s developed image rejection mixer for the 2nd stage and fixed bandpass filters and a Icom’s [DIGI-SE] preselector type - ( note the large toroidal coils on the Icom RF BPF bank)!

FLEX 6000™ Signature Series SDR’s - SmartSDR Multiple Slices and Multiple Panadapters on the same Radio!
Orlando Ham-fest February 2013 – 67th Orlando HamCation Amateur Radio & Computer Show – The FlexRadio Booth video interview! - See link, videos, pictures and the 1st Video of Tmate-2 HID Controller , below !
FlexRadio projects in early Q2 2013 start of deliveries: Gerard Youngblood, K5SDR FlexRadio CEO (latest Flex Insider-6): ….. “Next, how to you make an extremely complex radio simple and intuitive to use? Leonardo Da Vinci once said, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”. “Complex is easy, simple is hard”. …… Progress is visible and accelerating. Everyone is motivated, excited about what we are building, and working hard…. etc. ! – (See link below to more news!)
Flex Radio Booth at HamCation Orlando 2013- (by videosbymike
Il Team-Marketing di FlexRadio ha preparato quest’altro Video che mostra più in dettaglio alcune funzionalità della loro nuova interfaccia utente detta “SmartSDR” -
Il video inserito qui sotto è ricavato da una registrazione dal vivo effettuata da K5FRS con l’hardware del FLEX-6700 in corso di produzione e su cui girava proprio il Software “SmartSDR” in fase di implementazione da parte degli ingegneri FlexRadio-
Imagine a real time spectral display where the noise floor is averaged to the terrestrial noise floor. – By real time, I mean that the display follows the instantaneous power of the signal but the noise floor is almost a flat line (no “grass,” as we call it) at the noise level seen at the antenna. This remains true whether zoomed out to view half of the HF spectrum or zoomed in to just a few kHz.
[Note] The “PacMan” looking signal that flies through the bands is a Propagation Ionosonde Station located a few miles from FlexRadio Factory!
Watch the Video below “First Look” at the new FLEX-6000 SmartSDR and the Pictures! – See link below to new HID Controller Tmate-2 made in Italy (coming-son!)
Minimum Discernible Signal (MDS and NF) – How LOW do you GO? – by Greg Jurrens – K5GJ, VP, Sales & Marketing There’s been a lot of talk these days about Minimum Discernible Signal, or MDS. What is it? What affect does it have on my receiver performance? Why do I care? – …. “The ARRL labs use a procedure to measure MDS to a signal 3dB above the noise floor (NF) measured in a 500 Hz bandwidth.
!Amplifiers are very good at amplifying… Everything – signal, and noise. We want the signal but not the additional noise that comes along for the ride. Ideally, the amplified MDS should be 3 to 6db below the environmental noise floor. Plus, the amps themselves add a bit of noise to the mix. Worse yet, using pre-amplifiers have a cost of actually LOWERING the radio’s effective dynamic range. Dynamic range is defined as the difference between MDS and input overload. The pre-amp’s gain comes right off the top of that number. In this case, too much is not just right.
The FLEX-6000 Signature Series to the rescue! – One of the unique features of the Spectral Capture Unit (SCU) of the FLEX-6000 is the Digital Variable Gain Amplifier (DVGA). This allows the software to vary the SCU’s front end performance in 0.5dB steps from -11.5dB up to +20dB of gain (up to 40 dB on the FLEX-6700 with the additional +20dB second pre-amp). The result is the perfect MDS for your QTH and situation. Just enough gain to coax the signal out of the noise, but not so much that all you hear is noise or give up dynamic range. This capability will be provided for advanced operations. Again, the flexibility of a SDR (Software Defined Radio)…. etc” Link to Source: FlexRadio Systems (Flex Insider – Issue-5 and 6)
FLEX-6700 & FLEX-6500 Signature Series, incorporano una inconsueta potenza di elaborazione dati “built-in” (dentro!) – Montano la Xilinx Virtex-6®, una FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) di alto livello, un microprocessore Texas Instruments™ DaVinci™ Digital Media Processor che incorpora un processore ARM Cortex™-A8 CPU (con processore NEON™) a 1,4GHz (1,2GHz nel FLEX-6500) ed un coprocessore DSP a 32 bit in virgola mobile da 1,2GHz (1,0GHZ nel FLEX-6500). –
La nuova Serie FLEX-6000′s ora in pre-produzione e il suo Software SmartSDR in fase di perfezionamento, sarà rilasciata all’inizio del 2° Quadrimestre 2013! - (Leonardo Da Vinci diceva: “Complesso è facile Semplice è difficile” così lo cita K5SDR CEO Flex Radio nell’ultimo Flex Insider-6!)

Da Flex Insider Issue-5 /2012…..A proposito delle discussioni tecniche in corso sul MDS/NF (Minimo Segnale Discernibile a +3dB sul rumore o Noise Floor) Una delle caratteristiche uniche del circuito “Spectral Capture Unit” (SCU) incorporato nella Serie FLEX-6000′s è anche l’Amplificatore di Guadagno Digitale Variabile (DVGA). Questo sistema permette al software di variare le prestazioni del Front-end della SCU a passi di 0,5 dB da -11.5dB fino a +20 dB di guadagno (fino a 40 dB sul FLEX-6700, con l’ulteriore +20 dB del secondo pre-amp)…. così da adattare al meglio la MDS in base alle condizioni del QTH….etc.

The new Elecraft KX3 only 0,7 kg! - Totally different architecture than the Elecraft K3, of course (Wayne N6KR) – Availability towards end of 2011. – Firmware updateable – Large custom LCD – The revolutionary Elecraft KX3 puts the world in the palm of your hand! (Soursce: Elecraft US)
KX3 Ultra-compact 10W, 160-6m transceiver a 32-bit DSP/SDR IQ, all modes SSB/CW/AM/FM/DATA (including built-in PSK31 and RTTY encode/ decode) – The optional KXPA100 100W amplifair with ATU is in an external box. -!! See the video below for a pretty outline of features by N6KR, Wayne. – - (Click the mini-picture to enlarge front panel)
KX3 Preliminary informations: Quadrature down-sampling mixer compatible with PC-based SDR applications – Receiver I/Q outputs for use with PC saundcard – Narrow roofing filter option with four bw (500 Hz, 1500 Hz, 2.7 kHz, 3.8 kHz) - Switchable Pre-amp (2 levels) and attenuator (2 levels) -
Advanced DSP provides dual watch over +/- 10 kHz range, PBT for Shift/Width/Hicut/Loct, noise reduction, noise blanking, autonotch – Software-defined radio (SDR) architecture plus Roofing filter (KXFL3) for excellent dynamic rang – Operate in data mode (PSK31/RTTY) with or without a PC – For extreme portability, you can add the internal wide-range ATU, 8-AA cell battery pack with NiMH charger, and adjustable KXPD3 keyer paddle !!
IC-9100 Features and comments: Each main and sub-receiver has a dedicated DSP unit. The radio has two independent receivers in one radio and receives two different bands simultaneously. Roofing filter 6kHz FL-430 Unit and 3kHz FL-431 Unit are Optional. The band scope (no real-time) is a let down, the RX does not work when this is in operation; During the scan interval, the audio output is muted because the audio recovered from the sweep operation would be meaningless and disturbing.
According to the manual, there’s no way to upgrade the firmware; This could partially explain the long delay in product release. They had to get it right the first time!
First positive comments by Frank VK5KV:
Filter capabilities very good with similar operation to the IC-7600 with bandwidth and shaping etc.The Squelch/RF control can operate independently (squelch or RF gain or combined). NR control, Pre amps and AGC functions all excellent in noisy conditions. The SWR measuring Plot is a great feature for having a quick look at the antenna and doing comparisons, selectable in 10,50,100,or 500khz steps.
