Something to whet your appetite

The first FUNcube Dongle Pro+ units from the manufacturer, all testing good.

The new FCD Pro+ units are starting to come through from the assembler with increasing volume. All we need now is are some positive conformance testing results, due this Thursday, 18 October.

Many thanks, Howard

    What will be the price for the pro+ or will it be the same as the pro?

      Hello Daniel

      The price for the new FUNcube Dongle Pro+ is GBP124.99 (plus VAT at 20% if you are in the European Union). As you can imagine, with all the extra performance and functionality such as HF, there are 2.4 times as many parts to place as the original FCD, and that is reflected to a limited degree in a 25% price differential.

      Many thanks, Howard

    Very much looking forward to buying one. I have no idea if I am on the waiting list but I did send an email. How many in the first production run which I guess will be the only run before xmas ?

    How good is the reception on HF modes and the AM/ MW band would you say ?

      Hello Dave

      I have compared MW AM with other SDR receivers and I have been unable to measure a quantifiable difference with the antenna setup I have here.

      I have already ordered a second manufacturing run for delivery before Christmas.

      Many thanks, Howard

    If you have some free time, please do videos with those you help and the build itself setting boards. Heroes we want to know in person! 🙂
