Looks like an SDR in the traditional knobs and buttons box, CPU, etc....
I realize they don't support US yet but I'm sure they probably will if their product goes well. But think about Tim and FRS and how easy it is to talk to experienced users and for virtually all of us in the US, (like you George...) shipping our Flex units back for TLC is at worst a couple week ordeal.
Could you imagine applying DC to the antenna on that thing? You'd be out of a radio for months.
But as stated support would be a nightmare...
Looking at the back, I see HF (4), VHF(2), UHF(1) and what is this SHF???? new to me.. is that microwave? All in one box?? I understand the reason for the 4 fans, betting this thing gets HOT
The SUNSDR MB-1 is a 4th Generation Direct Sampling SDR in a Box... it's been around for at least 2 years.. I played with their demo units at Friedrichshafen 2014/2015. very nice compact design.. It has a built in i5 Windows 8 Computer inside the box. But only 2 receivers
I agree with Barry.. it's what the IC-7300 should have been to be competitive with even the Flex.6300.
Their purchase experience requires US $500 cash up front before they build one for you (so much for the Flex deposit for Maestro complaints)...
Software was nice but I preferred SSDR.. probably because I am more familiar with SSDR
Price point US$5,895 near a 6700 but nowhere the near the performance of the 6700.
