The WiNRADiO WR-G315i is a software-defined high-performance VHF/UHF receiver (9 kHz to 1800 MHz, extendable to 3500 MHz using an optional Antenna Multiplexer and Frequency Extender) on a PCI card.
This receiver is intended for government, military, security, surveillance, broadcast monitoring, industrial and demanding consumer applications.
The receiver offers an unparalleled flexibility given its SDR architecture, respectable dynamic range, and high sensitivity. Many useful features complement the receiver, making it capable of filling not only the role of a monitoring receiver but also that of a measuring receiver, such as the calibrated S-meter showing the received signal levels in dBm, µV or S-units, down to the -140 dBm noise floor, several spectrum analyzers, and many other features not usually found on receivers of this price.
The hardware and software package consists of the receiver card, Windows-based software, a start-up antenna and a user’s manual.
This G315i/IF2 receiver provides a narrow-band IF output at 16 kHz, its bandwidth limited by the receiver’s 20 kHz roofing filter. This is a useful option for low-cost experiments with Software Defined Radio concepts, because the frequency is low enough to be digitized by a standard PC sound card.
