FDM-DUO SDR to ship May 2014

FDM-DUO-opening

I’ve just learned from the Europe-based retailer, WoodBoxRadio, that the new FDM-DUO software defined radio will begin shipping end of May 2014.

If you are interested in pre-ordering the FDM-DUO transceiver, you’ll need to submit a 30% deposit (315 Euro) based on the full price (1,159 Euro). The pre-order price is 1,049 Euro.

Go to WoodBoxRadio for more details.

Update: ELAD FDM-S1 shipping March 26

The ELAD FDM-S1 Software Defined Receiver

I just received an update from WoodBoxRadio stating that the new ELAD FDM-S1 software defined radio will begin shipping Monday, March 26, 2012 to those who have pre-ordered the unit.

WoodBoxRadio also noted that the FDM-S1 is still available at a “special” price of 399 Euro.  This pricing is only valid until March 31, 2012, at which time, I assume, the price will increase.

If you have purchased the ELAD FDM-S1, we would love your thoughts on this receiver. Please comment!

Studio 1 Software Defined Radio will give your Perseus a resizable interface

One of the major complaints I hear regarding the benchmark Microtelecom Perseus SDR is that its GUI (graphic user interface) is not resizable or scalable to fit a large monitor at full-screen.

If you’re a Perseus owner and if this is a problem for you, then you need to watch for the release of Studio 1 Software Defined Radio by SDR Applications. Which will boast:

  • Fully re-sizable windows/interface,
  • support for multiple sessions
  • and state of the art visualization, demodulation and filtering

WoodBoxRadio told me that SDR Applications is still finishing off development, but plan to have a bug-free version of their software available at the end of March 2012. They told me that Studio 1 will work with the Microtelecom Perseus, FDM-S1 and the Softrock family of software defined radios (SDRs).

We will stay in touch with WoodBoxRadio and post any updates here on the SWLing Post.
