There are numerous demodulation modes, continuously variable IF bandwidth 1 Hz to 15 kHz (in 1 Hz increments), a 20 kHz wide real-time spectrum analyzer with 16 Hz resolution, noise blanker and notch filter. There is also an integrated recorder, making it possible to instantly record and playback the received signal.
Apart from audio recording and playback, the receiver can also record an entire 20 kHz wide IF spectrum, making it possible to thoroughly analyze the received signal, and "re-receive" the same signal again and again with different IF filter bandwidths, notch filter, noise blanking or demodulator settings, to arrive at the best possible reception of weak or interference-prone transmissions.
In addition to the real-time narrow-band spectrum analyzer, there is also a wide-band spectrum analyzer which contains additional professional instrumentation facilities: the ability to display minimum and maximum spectrum sweeps, search for peaks, average spectra, save and print spectra, marker mode, etc.
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.
The unique research and education function makes it possible to explore interactive block diagrams of the software-defined demodulator, for each demodulation mode, and observe demodulation taking place on real-time signals using two spectrum analyzers and a vector voltmeter.
The Client/Server Option makes it possible to control the receiver remotely via LAN or Internet. The receiver may be located physically on the opposite side of the globe, but to the user it will appear as if it was connected locally.
