Quick question!

Postby Ei4gyb » Sat Oct 26, 2019 1:05 pm

Hi folks.
This may in the wrong thread apologies.
Any difference between the grey and blue radios?

Panel.
Would be very grateful for a quick response

Blue would be later manufacture, not sure what the technical differences would be.

Yes, wrong forum. It has nothing to do with where you posted it (PowerSDR).

The grey faced units are older and probably have an older revision RF/PA card in it. The older Rev. 15/16 boards used EXT1 as the feedback path for PureSignal. To better understand the differences see the schematics.

You might also have an internal linear power supply instead of a switching power supply.
