Wide band coverage 10kHz - 3600MHz
Super wide band of 0.01~3600MHz covered in SSB, AM, FM(WFM), CW. The 35GR-RM has a function by the output of the high quality I.F. signal, and, width of the I.F. signal can be choice with demodulate mode separately.

32-bit MCU, Fast scanning , Low noise
Plural DDSs are included in 35GR series efficiently. The lock speed of each synthesizer is less than about 2mS. These DDSs and synthesizers are controlled by 32 bits low noise MCU (Micro Control Unit). The MCU performs various control of the hardware, and calculation of frequency fast.

ANT inout vs RSSI voltage +/- 1.5 ppm high frequency stability
The 35GR series uses a TCXO unit which provides +/1.5ppm frequency stability from -10 to +75 degree Celsius. The 10MHz reference frequency can be input from external equipments.

Superior linearity
The 35GR series has superioir linearity in wide frequency range like the left image. The receiver performance of 35GR series are almost equal (or better) to measurement test receivers.
The excellent basic performance of 35GR series enables reliable certain monitoring and listening.

AF-IQ output
A 12kHz IF output is provided for a PC sound card based SDR (software defined radio) for signal demodulation by the PC. Typical application includes the reception of DRM (Digital Radio Mondiale) broadcasts on HF frequencies. 12kHz offset analog I/Q through audio line out jack

Various commands

The 35GR series has commands more than 100. Other than the basic control of receiver, control of memory channels & search banks, high-speed reading of the signal strength can be performed through commands. The 35GR series should be utilized in various systems.

RTC Real-time clock
independent RTC is installed. The function of RTC can do practical use by various systems, such as time-stamps of monitoring records.
