The ALINCO DX-SR8E all-mode shortwave transceiver offers the following equipment:
All amateur radio shortwave bands As an all-mode transceiver, the DX-SR8E transceiver offers all amateur radio shortwave bands from 160m to 10m in SSB, CW, AM, FM modes. Transmission power up to 100W in SSB / CW / FM operation and up to 40W in AM operation. For QRP operation, the transmission power can be limited to 1 W (SSB, CW, FM) and 0.4 W (AM). The receiver has a frequency range from 135 kHz to 30 MHz (also all-mode).
Removable control panel The removable control panel with its large LC display and front loudspeaker (2W NF) ensures maximum flexibility when choosing a mounting location for the DX-SR8E. A 5m long separation cable EDS-17 is available as an option for remote installation.
Direct frequency input via keyboard With the main dial you can easily select your desired working frequency (tuning steps can be selected in set mode). An even faster direct frequency entry is possible via the numeric keypad on the front.
Effectively eliminating QRM In addition, the DX-SR8E offers an IF shift function, narrow band filter, noise blanker and RIT / TXIT.
Emphasis on CW operation For CW enthusiasts, this transceiver offers an electronic CW keyer, adjustable CW pitch, full QSK, selectable carrier point (USB or LSB), semi or auto break-in, narrow band filter, automatic gain control and RF gain as standard.
Excellent modulation The standard supplied dynamic microphone and the integrated speech processor ensure a powerful and clear modulation.
Various scan modes Various scan modes such as Priority, Search, Busy, Timed, Memory and Programmed search are available.
