SDR IQ and FTdx5000D marriage


It was time to exploit the IF output of my FTdx5000D to establish a descent pan adapter for my trx. I chose the SDR IQ to do the job. The SM-5000 is  good but rather insufficient. It is just an indicator I would say. An SDR receiver gives a much bigger amount of information. It is really a must-have.

In the picture you can see SpectraVue software in the left screen. From now and then I will not only listen a QSO but I will  watch it as well!
