SX-2000

An excellent homebrew project by IZ7LDG Antonio Ferrulli created during summer 2014.
Antonio is also known as the author of the Metrovna Antenna Analyzer.

This transceiver it’s basically a compact QRP 5W HF transceiver CW/SSB working in three bands only 10 15 and 20 meters. Some web sites reports erroneously full HF + 6m  + 4m but as far as we have understood this is just a planned feature for upcoming releases.

The SX-2000 feature a 3.2” touch screen with a color display, an integrated USB port, IF, AGC and Filters.

This transceiver it’s not a commercial product, and there are no Kits available.

The bad news are that, according to recent news by the author, this project will remain a prototype a no further developments will be done to this project

The good news instead are that Antonio and IZ7JXJ Raul, are working to a new exciting project, currently in the early beta stage.

Rumors talk about a portable 7 bands  QRP RTX, in a form factor similar to the Elecraft KX3

In the mean while we can have a deeper look at the pictures taken by the author.

SX-2000 interface demonstration

You can listen to a demonstration QSO done during early prototype tests.


We are monitoring Antonio’s activity and we will publish soon on our site any new prototypes he will release.

Stay tuned.
