Airspy R2 Software Defined Radio (SDR)

The Airspy R2 sets a new level of performance in the reception of the VHF and UHF bands thanks to its low-IF architecture, high quality ADC and state of the art DSP. The coverage can be extended to the HF bands via the SpyVerter R2 up-converter companion.

The Airspy R2, like its predecessor, is 100% compatible with all the existing software including the de facto scanning standard SDR#, but also a number of popular software defined radio applications such as SDR-Radio, HDSDR, GQRX and GNU Radio.
