Software controlled Radio


This is a canggih Radio that costs several thousand Ringgit to buy.

WR-G313i

Overview
The WiNRADiO WR-G313i is a software-defined high-performance HF receiver (9 kHz to 30 MHz, optionally extendable to 180 MHz) on a PCI card.
This receiver is intended for government, military, security, surveillance, broadcast monitoring, industrial and demanding consumer applications.

The receiver is extremely sensitive, making it possible to comfortably read CW signals under 0.05 µV input levels, yet featuring a respectable 95 dB dynamic range making the receiver resistant to strong signal overload. The high sensitivity is also matched by that of the S-meter: The fully calibrated S-meter shows the received signal levels in dBm, µV or S-units, down to the ‑140 dBm noise floor.
The hardware and software package consists of the receiver card, Windows-based software, a start-up antenna and a user's manual.

Hardware

The PCI card plugs into an available slot of an IBM-compatible PC. Several receivers (as many as there are free PCI slots available) can be controlled by a single PC - an ideal solution for high-performance multi-channel automatic monitoring systems.
There is a single SMA antenna connector and an output line audio jack which can be used to connect the receiver output directly to a sound card line-input or an amplified speaker.
The receiver has its own on-board DSP, and does not rely on the PC sound card for its performance. As the DSP performs the final stage IF filtering and all demodulation, this receiver is entirely software-defined, which means that additional demodulation or decoding modes can be easily added by a mere software change. (For example, an optional DRM decoder/demodulator is also available.)
No cables or power supplies needed - no clutter on your desk. Every modern desktop computer can be converted into a powerful HF monitoring station with minimum fuss.

Software
The WR-G313i software contains numerous advanced features, many tuning and scanning options, virtually unlimited memories and a rich on-line help facility:

Another useful feature, previously unavailable with receivers of this price class, is a test and measurement facility, performing measurements on the received signal including frequency accuracy, amplitude modulation depth, frequency deviation, THD (total harmonic distortion) and SINAD. An audio spectrum analyzer is also included, making it possible to observe the demodulated spectrum in real-time with a resolution of 5 Hz.

What's included?
The standard WR-G313i package includes:
WR-G313i receiver card Application software Comprehensive user's manual Start-up antenna Audio lead BNC-to-SMA adapter

System requirements:
PC with 500 MHz Pentium CPU or faster One free PCI slot Windows 98/ME/2000/XP
