Fantastic radio !
from Anonymous on 20/08/2018
The FDM-Duo is by far the best HF radio I ever used...
Quiet reciever and great noice canceling features!
Easy to use, compact but still not to small.
The SW2 software is awesome, there is so much you can do and tweek for your own like and taste.

Very well done ELAD and thanks!
molto buono

Sono molto soddisfatto del fdm-duo , lo trovo molto performante in cw . Anche con forti segnali adiacenti non da mai segni di cedimento. Il fatto che il suo SW di gestione sia derivato da quello del ricevitore credo sia un punto di forza. Questo perchè la gestione del ricevitore è la parte più importante in un ricetrasmettitore ,ed in questo caso è veramente completa.
Unico appunto che faccio è la mancanza di un advance tx cw. Questo apparato è un qrp e tutti gli om che fanno qrp lo fanno in cw. L'fdm-duo ha un bellissimo advance tx ssb ma in qrp in ssb non si va, a motivo della bassa intellegibilità del segnale.Sono certo che visto l'evoluzione di questo prodotto con i nuovi accessori come il duo-art spinga l'implementazione del SW anche nella parte cw. Per dare un prodotto adeguato alla sua categoria di prezzo. 73's

After impecable sale, I bought a second-hand fdm-duo, and I had some problems of putting into service, question asked answered within ten minutes.
Awesome little box. Hard to believe it works so well being so small

When I heard the Elad FDM duo on the air, I could not believe that this little box could do what it was doing. So I sold my old rigs and bought the Elad, not expecting the incredible abilities of this radio.

I run a 500 watt amplifier with this radio so I have the power when I need it and I also love the QRP abilities. QRP is fun but QRO is sometimes needed when the bands do not cooperate.

This radio has the best receive ability of all the radios I have owned and I've owned the best of almost all the manufacturers. SDR is the future and the Elad FDM duo is a big step into the future.
Fantastic little Radio

I got the Elad FDM-DUO at the Ham Radio this year. Played with it beside a K3, TS850S - the DUO is my first real SDR Radio and i am fully satisfied and very happy with it. One of the best mechanical work and design i've ever seen on Amateur Radio for a little qrp machine. It outperforms even the K3 - you have less noise floor during cw operation. This SDR is in my opinion the best buy for a QRP Radio. If you think about a KX3 - just compare the concept and workmanship.
The Software for the PC is straightforward and easy to use - but still there are parts under construction - because of the lot of possibilities of the Radio.
The FDM-DUO is a great product and i hope a lot of OMs will think this too.

Used for 4 days. Ronseal - does what it says and without a PC. On air compares well with Flex 5000 / FT 2000. Seems mechanically sound and the human interface well designed given the restriction to 3 knobs and 6 buttons. Elad to be congratulated on the engineering of what is a complex product encompassing RF, FPGA, embedded software and the complimentary PC software. Would expect ELAD to continue innovating and improving great new products. Apple watch out! Well done.
Superb probduct
