In addition to the Titus II did you spot the link to a new Airspy product - the Airspy HF+? The technical specs of this are impressive for anyone who wants "just" HF, FM broadcast and Airband. The bandwidth is 600 kHz alias free.

Yes Dave. I have been following that one for a few weeks now. I think it will be good for MS in particular. Pity the VHF coverages starts at 60 MHz though.

Yes I noticed that - but if it doesn't tune down below that one can always use an RTL-dongle for Band I TV - what is left of it. I'm not sure how they expect it to resolve TV with only 600 kHz bandwidth maybe the actual sample rate is 1 mbps.

Seems "influenced" by my rdr pocket
I've had it since spring but this year has been so awful I haven't really put it through its paces, at this rate it will be next spring before I can say anything meaningful about its performance
