The LD-1TR is a NEW 5-Watt (nominal output) HF / MF transceiver for Amatreur Radio operators. It’s based on the LD-1B2 software defined receiver (in fact, there’s an LD-1B2 inside it and it looks just like an LD-1B2) but there’s an LD-1TX 5-Watt transmitter module inside the box. Like the LD-1B2, its low cost and high performance make it a great addition to any ham shack. Small in size, it is also ideal for portable operation using a notebook computer. It does require a host computer, either desktop or notebook (or even a netbook) with Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7; a souncard with a stereo line-in connector; and SDR signal-processing software (HDSDR is recommended, download it at no cost). The current host software and firmware may be downloaded on the Downloads page.
“Wav” format demonstration files, recorded using Winrad, are also available on the Downloads page. These may be played back using Winrad, and will let you experience the LD-1 before you buy.
The LD-1TR has a very nice extruded aluminum enclosure with an attractive black anodized finish.
