DX Patrol MK2

100 kHz to 2 GHz SDR Receiverdx_patrol

The DX-Patrol MK2 is a compact software defined radio receiver featuring a “Ultra wide” receiving frequency range. This is made possible because this receiver

DXPatrolincludes a converter for HF bands
with additional band filters, resulting in a much better dynamic range and an excellent performance in strong signal processing.

Operating on HF bands need a frequency shift of -40MHz. DX Patrol SDR offer the entire frequency range without gaps.

It features two indipendent SMA antenna connectors, one for VHF and one for HF bands and a Mini USB port as PC interface.

The switch on the side of the receiver permit the use of a low-noise pin diode, to be used when changing from HF to VHF bands or vice versa. Sampling rate supported by the SDR is 3.2MS/s, but this is usually limited by the PC software.
