Software

A version of ExpertSDR2 software with adapted GUI for 7" display was specially developed for the MB1 transceiver. At the present time software works in RX/TX mode and supports two independent receiving channels with the bandwidth up to 312 kHz. A DSP library developed by company Expert Electronics allowed improvement of receiving quality and higher the stability of the software.

Original accessories:

PTT microphone MD-15
Power cable to connect the transceiver to a 220V AC electrical network
5A pre-fuse
