Elad are pleased to announce the ELAD FDM-S3 is now in production and shipping to distributors world-wide.
The ELAD FDM-S3 is a 16bit state of the art Software Defined Radio, for radio enthusiasts, shortwave listeners and radio hobbyists and test labs. The S3 contains several exciting options. It will allow for reception of up to 24Mhz of bandwidth across the frequency range of 9kHz to 108Mhz as standard. (Extended range from 9Khz- 2Ghz will be available later in the year with an optional internal downconverter.)
Standard Oscillator version with TCXO 0.1ppm lockable to GPS (included) need only GPS antenna
Optional Oscillator OCXO with less phase noise and accuracy lockable to GPS. Includes GPS Antenna.
The radio can be used with Elad’s famous SW-2 software or third-party software, like SDR- Console from Simon Brown.
The radio has Bias-T power on two of the three antenna ports, one for HF and one for VHF to enable items like powered LNA/Filters
Connects to PC via USB3.0 cable (supplied) and GPS can also be interrogated via UBlox software.
The ELAD FDM-S3 was first announced last year, but has only recently started shipping. We know its processing bandwidth is impressive–wide enough to include the entire FM broadcast band! The price is 949.90 EUR.
ELAD has also introduced a matching amplified speaker–the SP1:
If I owned an FDM-DUO transceiver, I would grab this matching speaker! Knowing ELAD, I imagine the audio is impressive. The price of the SP-1 is 140.30 EUR.
And finally, ELAD has also posted a photo of what appears to be a new amplifier:
I have no details about the SP1 speaker or DUO-ART amplifier–and few details about the FDM-S3–but I will meet with ELAD at the 2018 Hamvention in a few days and gather more details.
