Introducing a breakthrough
Convert your desktop PC into a most sophisticated radio monitoring station! The WiNRADiO WR-G305i is
a software-defined PC-based wideband scanning receiver covering a frequency range from
9 kHz to 1800 MHz (expandable to 3500 MHz with an optional downconverter).
The receiver comes on a standard two-third length PCI card and is compatible
with all modern desktop computers with an available PCI 2.2 standard slot.
Frequency range from 9 kHz to 1800 MHz
(except cellular bands where required by law)
Tracking front-end filters
Excellent strong signal handling
Real-time spectrum analyzer
Spot-on tuning in 1Hz steps
Accurate signal strength indicator
Fast scanning speed
Multiple squelch modes
Very low phase noise
DRM decoder option
APCO P25 decoder option
3.5 GHz downconverter option
Standard PCI interface
Plug and Play installation
With the Professional Demodulator Option, the many additional features include:
Continuously variable IF bandwidth 100 Hz - 15 kHz
User adjustable filter selectivity
WiNRADiO Digital Bridge™ compatibility
Built-in test and measurement instrumentation
Interactive block diagrams
The "G3" stands for "the third generation": As the original,
award-winning, first-generation WiNRADiO WR-1000i receiver was the world's first
commercially available wide-band receiver on a PC card when launched
over a decade ago, the newly introduced WR-G305i is the world's first
commercially available software-defined VHF/UHF receiver on a PCI bus card.
A Software Defined Radio (SDR) is such where demodulation and last IF (intermediate frequency) processing are done entirely in software. Usually
this means using a DSP, but in the case of the G305i, this processing is done on a personal computer
using a sound card (most modern PCs are now faster and more powerful than many DSPs were only a few years ago).
So, if you own a PC, the chances are that you already own an important part of a software defined radio receiver!
In addition to the flexible and friendly user interface, with its numerous functions and facilities not
normally available on any conventional receiver, the WiNRADiO G305i
receiver excells particularly by the ability of its
While the Standard Demodulator provides performance of a
highly respectable scanning receiver including synchronous AM demodulation
and a real-time spectrum scope, the optional Professional Demodulator
offers even more: continuous IF filter bandwidth adjustment (in 1Hz increments),
interactive block diagrams with two additional audio spectrum scopes, and
even inbuilt THD and SINAD measurement facilities.
An optional DRM decoder/demodulator is also available.
The WiNRADiO G305i: A ground-breaking general-coverage receiver that
opens many new possibilities in the world of both conventional and digital
communications. Prepare to be amazed!
