SunSDR2 PRO Review by ZL3DW Andrew Barren

The SunSDR2 PRO is extremely sensitive with performance similar to ANAN-100. With the 10 dB preamp turned on you can expect MDS figures better than -131 dBm and up to -136 dBm on some bands.  On the 2m band I could hear a signal at -140 dBm which is exceptional. This would make the radio a real contender for weak signal work on the 2m band.

SunSDR2 Review by RadCom

SunSDR2 Review by RadCom: The SunSDR2 PRO is a surprisingly powerful and capable rig that is bristling with features for the modern shack. Don’t be fooled by its diminutive size, this is a hard-core SDR rig with full 16-bit direct sampling and two independent channels that can operate anywhere in the 0-65MHz range. Download and read the full 4-page review.
