New DXpatrol

DX-Patrol SDR Empfänger

Software Defined Radio mit grossem Frequenzbereich (100KHz to 2GHz)

  • Independent antenna inputs for Shortwave and VHF
  • USB computer connection ( mini usb)
  • Very High dynamic range receiver
  • Low noise pin-diode band switch
  • Accurate and efficient band filters
  • Very clean audio reception
  • SMA golden antenna connectors
  • LED power and band indication
  • 40MHz local oscillator for HF conversion
  • DBM balance diode ring mixer
  • Small size board
  • Freeware software
  • Up to 3.2 M Sample rate

Der DX-Patrol ist ein Software Defined Radio (SDR) Empfänger mit einem sehr großen Frequenzbereich. Im Gegensatz zu den üblichen Billig-DVB-T Sticks verfügt dieser Empfänger über einen zusätzlichen Konverter für Kurzwelle. So wird ein weiter Frequenzbereich von 100 kHz bis 2000MHz möglich. Für den Betrieb mit dem HF-Konverter sind Bandfilter vorgesehen die die Großsignalfestigkeit des Empfängers verbessern, auch das haben die meisten Billig-SDRs nicht.

Ein weiteres Merkmal des DX-Patrol ist das der Frequenzbereich ohne Lücken abgedeckt wird. Durch die beiden unabhängigen Antennenanschlüsse (SMA) kann man die am besten geeigneten Antennen für den jeweiligen Empfangsbereich verwenden und ohne Umstecken die Bereiche wechseln. Die Umschaltung zwischen Kurzwelle und VHF erfolgt am DX-Patrol durch einen Kippschalter, der einen rauscharmen Pin-Dioden-Schalter ansteuert. Der jeweilige Betriebszustand (HF/VHF) wird durch eine mehrfarbige LED angezeigt. Die Abtastrate ist wie für den Chip typisch bis 3.2MS/s denkbar. Allerdings wird die tatsächlich erreichte Abtastrate durch die jeweilige Software festgelegt. Dadurch ergeben sich dann die sichtbaren Spektrumsbreiten von 96kHz bis ca. 1MHz und mehr.

 Der Betrieb des DX-Patrol ist mit jeder Software möglich, die den RTL2832 Chip unterstützt. Das sind unter anderem:

  • SDR# (Windows)
  • HDSDR (Windows)
  • (Windows)
  • SDR Touch (Android)
  • Gnu Radio (Linux)
  • u.a.

Spezielle Programme wie rtl1090 oder dump1090 erlauben den Empfang der ADS/B-Baken von Flugzeugen. Damit und eienr geeigneten Antenne plus Kabel wird die Darstellung der aktuellen Fluglage am Standort möglich. Ausserdem kann man an weltweiten Netzwerken teilnehmen, die die Daten zum Beispiel für bereitstellen. Andere Programme erlauben den Empfang von NOAA Wettersatelliten auf 137 MHz - die Möglichkeiten des DX-Patrol SDR EMpfängers sind endlos.

Die Installation des DX-Patrol SDRs ist einfach gehalten. Man verwendet am besten nicht die Windows-eigenen Treiber sondern den 'Zadig' Installer. Die meisten der o.g. Programme sind Freeware, es existieren dazu entsprechende Anleitungen im Internet. Eine eigene Software oder eigene Treiber werden mit dem DX-Patrol nicht mitgeliefert. Der Anschluß zum PC erfolgt mir einem USB-Kabel mit Mini-B Stecker, am PC wird ein USB2 Anschluß vorausgesetzt. Im Lieferumfang ist kein USB-Kabel enthalten.

New Digital Repeater DR1-XE

Wir freuen uns Ihnen mitteilen zu können dass dieses Produkt zu guter Letzt ab 30.Juni 2014 erhältlich sein wird

Nous avons le plaisir de vous communiquer que finalement ce produit sera disponible dès le 30 juin 2014

Abbiamo il piacere di  comunicarle  che finalmente  questo prodotto sarà disponibile dal 30 giugno 2014

We are pleased to announce the introduction of the DR-1XE, dual band (144/430MHz) repeater that supports both conventional analogue FM and System Fusion digital radio protocol at the same time all within the limits of a 12.5 kHz channel bandwidth. We are confident that the introduction of the new DR-1XE is dawn of our new and exciting multi-function system, System Fusion. System Fusion is the integrated platform we offer to bring our digital radio solutions that enabling crisp and lear voice communications and reliable high-speed data communications using C4FM digital modulation and also to continue to provide with substantial advantages of FM Analogue such as low battery consumption and greater distance capability.

One of key features of System Fusion products is AMS (Automatic Mode Select) capability, which instantly detect whether the received signal is V/D mode, Voice FR mode and Data FR mode of C4FM Digital or Analogue FM mode, and automatically match the communication mode of the received signal. Thus, with System Fusion digital transceivers, including FT1DE and FTM-400DE, you don’t need to manually switch between the communication modes to intercommunicate with other FM Analogue transceivers.

With the DR-1XE, AMS can be configured to convert the incoming C4FM Digital signal into FM Analogue signal and retransmit it thus enabling intercommunication between Digital and FM Analogue transceivers.

AMS can also be configured to automatically retransmit the incoming mode to the output thus enabling both Digital and Analogue users to coexist on the same repeater.

Until now, FM repeaters were only used for conventional FM, and digital repeaters were only used for digital communication. However, from now on, by simply replacing an existing FM analogue repeater with DR-1XE, you can continue to use the repeater for conventional FM communication and also use it for advanced System Fusion digital radio communications. Existing peripheral devices such as the duplexer and amplifier, etc., can also continue to be used as-is.

Repeater controller features include control panel selection of RX/TX frequency, Power (50/20/5W), CTCSS or DCS Control access for Analogue FM, with programmable timeouts and Station ID in CW or Voice (if FVS-2 option installed). Remote control for Shutdown function is also supported. The rear panel Control I/O port is connectable with the “S-COM 7330 Triple Repeater Controller”. This controller manages max. three units of DR-1XE to operate with programmable beep, timer, access mode and more. Please refer to the attached sheet for technical features, specifications and accessories.
