ZS-1 SDR Transceiver New
The ZS-1 is a 'direct sampling' software defined radio (SDR) transceiver for shortwave. The excellent performance data is repsonsible for a very good ranking at the QST transceiver tests, as you can see here: http://www.remeeus.eu/hamradio/pa1hr/productreview.htm. The features of this transceiver make it very well suitable for stand-alone operation as well as a driver for a VHF/UHF/SHF transverter.
The maximum output power of the ZS-1 is 15W on amateur bands, and can be adjusted very precisely by software. The minimum power level is 0 dBm. For operation as an exciter for transverters the ZS-1 can transmit on all frequencies from 300 kHz to 30 MHz with low power. The receiver offers continous coverage from 300 kHz to 30 MHz, due to the band filters the transmitter is limited to the amateur bands when using high power mode. The 60m band is already included, and 40m coverage goes up to 7200 kHz. The antenna connection is provided by a PL (SO-239) socket, several other connectors are available to use a transverter, an amplifier or other accessories. The power supply requires a DC voltage from 12 to 15V, max. current consumption is 4A.
The connection from the ZS-1 to the computer is achieved via a USB 2.0 interface. The supplied Windows software offers comfortable transmit and receive operations and the control and settings of all parameters. Typical for an SDR is the wide spectrum display and waterfall. The width can be adjusted from 160 to 4000 kHz. Of course the received spectrum can be recorded and analysed later on. Other programs which can use the ZS-1 are "ham radio Deluxe" and "SDR-Radio.com" The supplied software also supports the decoding of PSK31 and RTTY modes. Further a client/server operation is possible, allowing you to use the transceiver over a remote network. The modulation is done via a microphone (e.g. from a headset) connected to the computer.
The ZS-1 SDR transceiver is manufactured in Germany.
