Note: This legendary model (the very first "WiNRADiO" which pioneered the entire industry of software-defined PC-based receivers) has been long superseded.
But its legacy still lives on: Please consider some of our latest replacement
The winner of the Most Innnovative Receiver Award by the WRTH, this receiver is the world's first commercially available PC-based wide-band receiver. An extremely popular receiver, eminently suitable for low-cost VHF/UHF monitoring.
The frequency range is 500 kHz to 1.3 GHz (the US version excludes cellular frequencies 825-849 and 869-894 MHz).
The WiNRADiO WR-1000i hardware/software package consists of the receiver card, Windows-based software, a start-up antenna and a 150-page book which provides introduction to radio scanning, many interesting hints and frequency lists.
Software options include Digital Suite, Trunking Option and Database Manager.
This receiver was intended for PC users looking for interesting applications for their PCs, scanner enthusiasts and radio amateurs. However, it increasingly found its way into many specialized professional applications as well.
