SDR Transceiver up for sale!

Sold I have a 7 month old Expert Electronics Sun SDR2 pro transceiver and the E-coder for sale. It is in mint condition, non smoking environment and with about 10 hours max of operating time. The reason for selling the unit is I received an Icom 7610 for Christmas and I can't justify having both radios as the SDR2 pro is just sitting on the desk doing nothing. 
New the radio and encoder sell for 2,500.00 Canadian for the 7 month old radio and encoder I am asking 1800.00 Canadian. Weil ship to U.S and Canada only.

  • Independent TX path based on DUC (Direct Up-Conversion) architecture

  1. A pity you don't ship to Europe :)

    1. To be honest Stefano I have not really looked into it, the only exposure I had was attempting to ship an item back to Russia and the shipping was out ragous.

    2. Never really looked into it but guess it's not worth it. Glad you like your 7610

    3. Good evening Stefano, I did check the cost to ship to Scilly with FedEx and the cost including taxes was just over 200.00. This was the cheapest way to go but I imagine it will be higher when I add insurance to the cost as well.
      Have a great weekend and great to hear from you.

    1. Good morning Darko, I received your email and sent you a reply. The radio is still available and I am at work at the moment but we can email each other to sort out the details with your son in BC.
