Perseus Receiver

The December 2008 issue of QST has a product review of the Microtelecom Perseus Software Defined Receiver. Its frequency range is 10 kHz to 30 MHz, and reception modes are SSB, CW, AM, FM. Since this receiver uses a high-speed ADC to convert the received RF signal to data, and derives the I and Q signal streams internally, it is able to interface with a PC via USB interface, rather than a sound card interface.

The Perseus is available from SSB Electronic USA.
