As seen from now, ELAD’s FDM-S3 is still to come. It features a 16 bit SDR with up to 24 MHz bandwidth (19.7 MHz alias-free) for receiving, recording and playback. It will become the great brother of the renowned FDM-S2 of also 16 bit, but with just 5 MHz alias-free bandwidth which was State-of-the-Art when this radio hit the market. Still, this remarkable FDM-S2 sets the standard in its price class.
The file format of the S3 is the same as with the S2, so Simon Brown’s software SDRC V3 works on S3 files also (see screenshot at the bottom). This opens V3’s File Analyzer plus up to 24 demodulators when playbacking files. SDRC V3 will support also live reception when the radio will be more widely available.
