The Microtelecom Perseus is a multi-mode, software defined receiver covering 10 kHz to 40 MHz. The Perseus sets an unmatched standard in HF receiver performance and includes features that will satisfy the most demanding user. The Perseus employs direct sampling conversion using a 14bit 80 MS/s analog-to-digital converter, a high-performance FPGA based digital down-converter and a high speed 480 Mbits/s USB 2.0 PC interface. An impressive full span spectrum display function is featured. An almost magicalspectrum record features allows you to record up to an 1600 kHz window of radio spectrum for later tuning and decoding.
The audio source is via your PC soundcard. Best results are heard by feeding the PC audio through a good amplifier and speakers systems, rather than the standard speakers bundled along with most PCs. The Perseus operates from 5 VDC at 1000 mA. This radio comes with an international AC power supply, AC plug converter, SO-239 to BNC RF adapter, USB cable and software/manual CD. .
