My Radio Hardware

Currently the only radio hardware I own is a AOR AR8600Mk2 wideband communication receiver. Below you'll find the specs for this receiver.

My receiver is connected to a server for signal processing etc. The receiver is connected using RS232 for administration and control. The audio output is connected to an input of the server soundcard and the detector output of the receiver is connected to another input. The I.F. output of the receiver is currently not connected to the server since I have no high-speed AD that could digitize it.
