CommRadio CR-1a another SDR that looks interesting

I have never really spent much time on the Software Defined Radio arena, but the more I keep loo at them they are becoming so interesting. The CommRadio CR-1a communications receiver is a true SDR (software defined radio), but does not require a computer. Enjoy the benefits and performance of state-of-the-art SDR, but in a conventional radio package.

 

As much as I hate to say, it might be time for me to make a purchase and spend some time playing with these. I really like the size of the rig in comparison to the SunSDR2 (http://nicktoday.com/sunsdr2-sunsdr-mb1-transceivers-software-defined-radios/). Hard to tell until I see them both in person.

    I had a CR-1 but it had numerous issues. I also found the owner of the company difficult to deal with. If you do purchase, buy it from a reseller like Universal Radio so you can get good service and the possibility of a refund if things go bad as they did for my CR1.
