“How does the SunSDR2 PRO perform in a multi operator contest environment? We wanted to test the PRO in the toughest possible environment, a multi operator contest effort at a contest super station. SM3SGP, the owner of SK3W invited us to take part in a Multi-Two effort in CQWW SSB where we got the chance to run the PRO in a tougher environment than most DX’ers will ever experience.
SK3W is equipped to win categories and break records. There are five towers filled with stacks of mono band beams and four element phased arrays are used on 80 and 160 meter. With multiple signals and high gain antennas we were really looking forward to play with the PRO in the QRM.
SK3W: From L to R. 10m Stack (30m), USA Stacks + 6m (70m), Stack 20m and Stack 40m (60m), Tribander(18m), 15m stack + 5el 20m and 6el 10m (42m)
he SunSDR2 PRO was hooked up in the multiplier position figuring S&P is where we have most use of the band scope and great filtering. We also connected a noise cancelling headset with a ModMic.…..READ MORE
