    Held one 10 bander and a 2 bandbander in my hands in Friedrichshafen, a pity they were not for sale then, would have bought one instandly.
    If possible do work on a 500Hz CW filter.

    Wonder how hard it would be to disable the transmitter and set the bands to the SWL. THEN I would be really interested to buy one of these SDR’s

      Hi !!
      You can switch bands in the radio to Continuous position. Then you can change the freq from 100kHz to 72MHz. This is also good for all SWLs.
      And… OMEGA+ radio is not SDR : )
      This is traditional radio with single frequency conversion.

      All the best from Poland !!
      🙂
