Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Dan Robinson, who shares the following video demonstration of the BELKA-DSP receiver by Fenu Duarte:

Thanks for sharing this, Dan. I must admit, it seems the BELKA-DSP has some excellent receiver characteristics. I like the backlit display and the rugged, simple form-factor. It doesn’t have an internal speaker, but based on Fenu’s video, the audio sounds superb (especially if you’re using a quality amplified speaker like Fenu).
I had planned to review the little BELKA-DSP last fall, but simply had too many in-bound review transceivers. As I knock out some of these reviews, I might have to reconsider!
Alex Buevsky kindly supplied the English language manual for the BELKA-DSP last year. If interested, click here to download the PDF.
The Belka can be bought from Bulgaria, here: https://www.mobimax.bg/en/BELKA-DSP-shortwave-receiver
I’ll have an initial review of this available soon…
Is their an English Translation for the Ordering Site?
Just ordered one. Couldn’t resist!
We’ll see how long it takes and I’ll try to report back on my experience with using it. Maybe a guest review for you.
Interesting concept and good results. What kind of antenna was used?
The manual says it works from 3.5 MHz to 30 MHz, but the video at 6.30 shows it starts at 1.5 MHz?
I Emailed Fernando. The Belka can be bought here:
Price: US$120 (at current exchange rate)
How much and where can I get one?
Where can the BELKA be purchased?
