CS108G+ is an upgraded version of the X108G from Xiegu. Besides the standard features as will be described below, this version has a built in Spectrum Analyzer and ID timer. The CS108G is a single-conversion HF transceiver. Its receiver is optimized for DXing by having a very low noise front end and a built in Pre-Amp. The radio comes standard with a 2.3k SSB and 500Hz narrow-band CW filter. The filters excellent properties dramatically improves the overall performance. The machine has a large dynamic range AGC control so the radio can properly process both weak and strong signals. in addition it also has S meter, power meter, NB capabilities, and many other features to meet the daily needs of most operators. To optimize the radio for outdoor use, the radio is equipped with a color OLED solid state display which allows you to clearly see the viewing content in both bright sunlight and at night.
1. Low noise, single-conversion super heterodyne receiver.
2. Double-balanced diode mixers provide excellent dynamic range
3. Receiving sensitivity: 0.25uV(preamplifier open,> 1.8MHz band).
4. Narrow double-tuned band-pass filter covering the all amateur bands (WARC bands).
5. Built NC APC circuit, allows variable constant power output.
6. Standard 0.5ppm TCXO circuit allows accuracies of a few hertz over all bands.
7. Standard narrowband 500Hz CW filter.
8. Built in Spectrum Analyzer
