The temperature operating specs are posted on the product web page.  In general, it is  0 to +50 degrees C; +32 to +122 degrees F.

If the radio is cold, below freezing, it will have difficulty booting because the ADC/FPGA timing will be out of range (spec).

However, if the radio is booted up and allowed to stay powered up continuously, the heat dissipated by the FPGA when it is idle is sufficient to maintain the ADC/FPGA data timing alignment.  In this mode the radio has been operated to near 0F
