XIEGU G106 HF Transceiver In Depth Review


Peter Waters G3OJV, takes an In-Depth look at this new transceiver. He also gives his views on what may have been a hoax review.


The G106 is based on an SDR architecture with 16bit sampling to deliver superior performance.

It has a digital CW filter with three bandwidths to help you fight interference and get more clear reception of weak signals.

With the optional external DE-19 digital adapter, it can be connected to a PC for working digital modes including FT8.

As an entry-level portable SDR transceiver, G106 will be the perfect HF transceiver to start explore the bands with SSB, CW and exciting digital modes like FT8.

Basic features:

  •  High-performance SDR core circuit
  • Compact and robust structure
  • Transmission and receiving of all amateur frequency bands within 3.8~29.7MHz
  • WFM broadcast receiving
  • Shortwave full-range continuous receiving
  • Amateur data communication available
  • Computer online control available

Please read the Operator Manual carefully for a better experience and full understanding on operation of the G106.
