Portable radio receiver ARINST SDR Dreamkit V1D (hereinafter referred to as receiver, device) is designed to receive, display and listen to radio signals with various types of analog modulation. The receiver body is made of aluminum and has compact dimensions. On the front of the case there is a touch screen with a diagonal of 4 inches and a resolution of 800x480 pixels. The display can be set to viewing up to 4 spectrum / waterfall plots for different bands. The receiver is built using SDR technology, which allows you to programmatically control the device settings. The signal processing and demodulation unit is completely implemented on a DSP-based microcontroller. The device can be used both in stand-alone mode and under PC control. The demodulated signal can be listened to through the built-in speaker, wired headphones, or via Bluetooth.

For whom?

Portable radio receiver ARINST SDR Dreamkit V1D is designed for listening to the radio with simultaneous display of the spectrum, this allows you to assess the radio environment and tune in to the wave of interest. The device is made in a robust aluminum case with a built-in rechargeable battery, so it can be used both in the laboratory and in the field. The device will be useful to those who are engaged in amateur communication, radio monitoring, and repair of radio transmitting equipment. You can connect wired or Bluetooth headphones to the device, in addition, the device has a built-in 2W speaker. The instrument is equipped with a 4-inch resistive touchscreen display. Autonomous working time - 4 hours.

ARINST SDR Dreamkit V1D is used for:

  • search and listen to radio sessions on the amateur bands

  • listening to FM band radio stations

  • radio monitoring

  • tune radio transmitters

  • PC as SDR with 6 MHz sampling rate

  • educational process in universities

Attention! Do not switch the RF input connector when the charger is connected or the USB connection to the PC is connected. If these recommendations are not followed, the radio may fail.

Attention! It is strictly forbidden to connect a short-circuited load to the receiver input and supply an internal voltage to the RF connector. It is also not allowed to connect a short-circuited load to the input if the voltage to the RF connector is already applied. This will cause the radio receiver to fail!!!

Differences ARINST SDR Dreamkit V1D from analogues:

  • Wide operating frequency range, without "dips" (some analogues have dips in the range of 250-400 MHz)
  • The presence of a large display and a capacious battery
  • Display of the spectrum in a 5 MHz band (some popular analogues display less than 1 MHz), as well as continuous transmission of this band to a PC
  • Simultaneous spectrum display and signal demodulation
