WorldStation 3.11 features a comprehensive suite of tables as well
as the most advanced shortwave
scanning available for the RX-350D series anywhere. Not only does this
software automatically adapt to your antenna system, it can scan
multiple bands simultaneously! Just point and click your
mouse on one of the color bars in a scan panel and WS 3.1 automatically
tunes your radio for you.
Not only do you get effortless control over the RX-350D's many functions with WS 3.11, you get the industry's best ILGRadio database integration. The ILGRadio Database is freely provided at www.ilgradio.com The ILGRadio database is renowned among shortwave listeners for providing accurate identification of shortwave broadcasts anywhere in the world. Dxtra adds powerful indexing to the ILGRadio database to give you real-time updates (every minute) on stations that are currently on the air. Every data field from the ILGRadio database is displayed. Refresh time every minute is about 1 second on a Pentium III PC. Of course, all tables are point and click to automatically set the frequency to the selected station. No manual tuning is required. Filtering on the languages of your choice is supported, via a configuration file.
This software allows the customer to remotely control the RX-350D over a TCP/IP Local Area Network (LAN). So if you have a home wireless LAN, you would be able to listen and control your RX-350D from anywhere in your house from your wireless enabled laptop! This exciting capability is built-into WorldStationTM 3.x - no extra software is required - you just supply the LAN. Imagine another scenario - you check into an Internet enabled hotel room and control and listen to your RX-350D from anywhere in the world! Microsoft's free Netmeeting can be used for your real-time audio feed.
Also included is a real-time frequency lookup table that shows all stations currently active on a given frequency. Thanks to our indexing, you are able to see this data in real-tine as you step through a band. Talk about performance - WS 3.1 has it and more. Rounding our the offering is our Band Table, which gives you a point and click breakdown of the radio spectrum, grouped by category. Clicking on a row of the band table immediately sets up the RX-350D to the parameters of that band.
Below are details of the beautifully engineered American made RX-350D from Ten-Tec. There are so many great features to this radio, they are impossible to summarize here. One feature that deserves mention is that the RX-350D is a so-called "software radio" and is updated regularly by Ten-Tec. We have upgraded with no problem several times ourselves from there web site to get new features. Visit our links page for additional details on any Ten-Tec radio.
The new Ten-Tec RX-350D is a full featured, mid-price range HF DSP receiver designed for today's demanding shortwave listener.
The world of IF level digital signal processing is now available in a powerful desktop SWL receiver unlike anything that has come before it.
What benefit does IF-DSP provide the shortwave
listener? The 'big picture' benefit is cleaner signal readability.
Eliminate heterodynes and limit spurious broadband noise instantly by
pushing buttons. Take advantage of the wide variety of DSP filter
choices built-in to the receiver to suppress undesired adjacent
interference. Use these same filters to tailor the response of the
receiver to your needs - from a wide 8 kHz for pleasing SAM or AM audio
to a tiny 300 Hz for digging weak CW and digital mode signals out of
the noise. There are 34 of them built-in. That's right, 34, not 2 or 3
built-in, and not sold as expensive options!
IF-DSP also allows Flash ROM updating of your receiver with the latest features and functions. Free! If new functions and features are added to the RX-350, simply visit our website, download the latest version of the receiver, connect it via a serial port cable to your RX-350D and it's as if your radio rolled off the assembly line minutes earlier.
The RX-350D features a clean, modern look featuring a large multi-function LCD graphics panel for display of all receiver functions. Push-button operation of major receiver controls are provided from the receiver front panel. Simple, logical layout of front panel controls allow operation of the radio without having to constantly refer to the instruction manual. Never has such a powerful receiver been so easy to operate.
RX-350D supports operating modes tailored to the dedicated shortwave listener. Selectable sideband, synchronous AM detection allows higher quality reception of AM signals especially under conditions of severe fading. DSP automatic notch filter for suppressing unwanted carriers in voice modes. Push-button DSP noise reduction to suppress unwanted broadband noise. The built-in 34 bandwidth filters from 300 Hz to 8 kHz are instantly selectable by turning a knob. All filters are independent of mode - use any available filter in any receive mode. Mode selection via dedicated push buttons rather than 'mode-cycling' with a single control. 'FAST UP' and 'FAST DOWN' buttons for quick large-step frequency changing. FAST UP and FAST DOWN buttons are user-configurable for step sizes, 1 MHz, 500 kHz, 100 kHz up or down. Main tuning knob can be adjusted in 7 user-selectable step sizes from 1 Hz to 100 kHz steps. Passband tuning and manual notch control are available in all modes, including synchronous AM.
Momentary 'SWEEP' function shows band activity in 8 selectable coverage rates. Find the signals without even being on frequency! Simply tune to a desired frequency, select one of 8 SWEEP ranges, and press the SWEEP button. Signals will be shown on the bar graph on opposite sides of the starting frequency. A cursor will appear and allow you to tune RX-350D to any signal visible on the screen. Easy!
8 banks of 128 memories each that retain frequency,
mode and bandwidth information. An alphanumeric tag function of up to 8
letters allows memories to be tagged with specific names like "WSEV
930" or "VOA", etc.
Scan functions allow scanning of band segments or memory banks. Memory bank scan feature includes a memory lockout function for skipping of constantly busy channels. Band scanning is user-programmable; set the start and stop frequencies, push a button and the radio starts to scan between the two frequencies.
Built in clock displayed on LCD screen displays hours, minutes, and seconds in user-selectable 12 or 24 hour format. Timer circuitry and a squelch-activated output allow for monitoring and/or taping of band activity even when the user is not present. Timer function allows the radio to be set in a 'wait' mode, to power on at a specific time and to send a control signal for actuation of accessory equipment. Two separate timer outputs are provided for connection of two separate devices to be actuated by the timer circuit. The squelch-activated output allows the radio to be left on and squelched on a given frequency. When a signal is present to open the squelch, an actuation signal is sent via a rear-panel jack.
Rear panel Hi-Z and Lo-Z antenna inputs allow connection of virtually any antenna to the RX-350. Built-in AC switching power supply allows operation of RX-350D from either 115 or 230 VAC. Separate DC power input jack can be used for 13.8 VDC operation. AC and DC supply can be connected at the same time for back-up. Plug the RX-350D into the wall and connect to battery supply. If the AC power goes off, the connected DC source automatically takes over power to the receiver. Mute function for muting of receiver if used with a companion transmitter.
An optional remote encoder knob/keypad, model 302, is available for armchair operation of the RX-350. Simply plug the 302 into the rear panel of the RX-350D via the provided 6 foot cable. The 302 provides a duplicate of the main tuning knob of the receiver, a direct frequency entry keypad, and three functions buttons that can be user-assigned to control various receiver functions like mode switching, main tuning knob step size, SWEEP actuation, etc. Main tuning knob on the receiver front panel and all other receiver functions are active even when the 302 is in use. Sit back and relax!
No other shortwave receiver packs this much value 'under the hood'. To top it off, it's MADE IN USA and competitively priced!
