Introducing the ANAN-8000DLE MKI

ANAN-8000DLE MKII HF & 6M 500W SDR Transceiver

Keeping in mind the various requirements posed by new cutting edge technologies implemented in the radio it has been designed from scratch, the design successes of the previous generation hardware has been improved in the new implementation.

The ANAN-8000DLE MKII uses an entirely new redesigned transmit chain keeping in mind PureSignal (Predistortion), the result is astounding IMD performance, the typical transmit IMD distortion is about a 1000 times lower than that achieved by a typical modern transceiver available today. Finals use BLF188XR.

Here is a Video of the IMD @ 500W without and with PureSignal enabled

The ANAN-8000DLE MKII includes two phase synchronous front ends to enable Diversity reception.
