High sensitivity and excellent strong signal handling

With the DiRaWave 032 we introduce the third generation of PC-controlled shortwave receivers from own development and production.

An extremely low noise floor of -137dBm in association with an oustanding intermodulation-free dynamic range of >102dB combines perfectly maximum sensitivity with excellent strong signal handling.

DRB 32-4 at the Arkala Extremes Project

This special model consisting of 4 coherent DRB 32 receiver units for simultanious 4-channel reception is used for measurements of the possibly highest 14MHz antenna in the world at Arkala/Northern Finland since July 2007.

These data are needed to create a mathematical model for antenna simulation. Design goal is development of "intelligent antennas" which deliver always the highest available signal-to-noise (SNR) ratio.

DRB 32 - New DiRaBox

With the new DRB 32 we introduce a modified concept especially for semiprofessional applications with enhanced performance:

• Increased sensitivity of about 6dB
• Switchable high intercept range (HighIP) for large signals
• Further improved selectivity
• Expanded interface with additional reset
• 12KHz standard IF output

DRB 30 PREMIUM - 1st prize in real-world test

A test of the DRB 30 PREMIUM in comparison to two other SDR receivers under DX conditions is available here:

King s Village DX Tests: Can a 150 Grams Box be a Communications Receiver ?

The test was made in Finland, DX stations were Radio New Zealand & Wantok Radio Light in Papua New Guinea. Short excerpt from the conclusion: "... the small box is really capable to receive signals as good as more expensive models."

DRB 30 - Single sample achieves max. 49.5dB SNR DRM performance

After a AGC modification of the DRB 30 the DRM performance was measured in combination with the DREAM software. The best sample achieved 49.5dB SNR, the other samples were in the range of 38 - 46dB

All units of the 2006 model series already include this modification, elder units are upgradeable.
