A few months ago, I sold my Perseus SDR and traded up to the Elad
FDM-S2, which covers up to 160 MHz, and has a bandwidth of about 6 MHz.
Haven't even had time to take it out of the box yet, but in the
meantime, a new SDR receiver has hit the market.

This SDR boasts 8 MHz of bandwidth, and covers from 100 GHz to 2 GHz.
This would allow the user to monitor things like the NOAA Weather Radio
band, amateur radio bands including 6 Meters, 2 Meters, 222, 432, 902,
and 1296, etc. So far, I haven't seen any reviews from hams or dedicated
DX'ers. But it's also half the cost of the Elad at only $300 USD.

More information is available at:

Can't wait to read a review on this one, and find the time to get my
Elad installed. Curious if any VHF operators have tried this one yet?
