TOPIC: Older SDR2 QRP question

Older SDR2 QRP question 31 Dec 2019 23:46 #1

My first post. I am considering purchase of an older SunSDR2QRP transceiver, this will be my first SDR Radio. I am computer fluent in both Linux and Windows so the software and the idea of running a radio from a computer does not intimidate me.
Question- Is the hardware for the SDR2QRP consistent from the time Expert started manufacturing it to the current model for sale as new today --or have there been hardware revisions over the life of this model ?
Any information would be very much appreciated.
Regards, Happy New Year & 73

Hello KF4VAR,
my QRP is from march or from the 3rd quarter of 2018. Serial number SN: EED032018XXXXX. It is designated as version: 7.0 and has the PCB revision: 1
I don't think there are different hardware versions because in my opinion there are very few QRP devices in circulation.

The transceiver is a nice, small and powerfull device. However, no bios bug fixes are expected from me for the future, e.g. the 10 Mhz clock input, not even for the high-priced mb1, which has the same problem. However, the MB1 has a local TCXO of +/- 0.5 ppm and not like the QRP of +/- 2.5 ppm. I am assuming that EE had the bios programmed in Taiwan or that the current programmers have no skill in debugging and programming the bios because the programming is very hardware-related. But maybe I'll be surprised in 2020.

So if you can live with this restriction, buy one.

Regards
Uwe
