Airspy R2 High-Performance SDR Receiver


Airspy R2 is an advanced open-source software-defined radio receiver with adequate dynamic range, capable of sampling 10MHz of spectrum anywhere between 24MHz and 1.8GHz – and even beyond with extensions.


This is one of the best-known SDR receivers on the market. It offers a continuous reception range from 24 to 1800 MHz, which makes it suitable for the analysis and reception of a large number of VHF and UHF signals. To receive the entire HF band (plus long and medium wave) an optional up converter is offered, which is perfectly tuned to match the receiver. With the spectrum cope from 10 MHz bandwidth, it is great for broadcast receiving.

Airspy R2 sets a new level of performance in the reception of the VHF and UHF bands thanks to its low-IF architecture based on Rafael Micro R820T2 and a high-quality Oversampling 12bit ADC and state-of-the-art DSP.


In Oversampling Mode, the Airspy R2 applies Analog RF and IF filtering to the signal path and increases the resolution to up to 16-bit using the software decimation. The net result is Spectacular Performance!

The coverage can be extended to the HF bands via the SpyVerter up-converter companion.

The Airspy R2, like its predecessor, is 100% compatible with all the existing software including the de facto scanning standard SDR#, but also a number of popular software-defined radio applications such as SDR-Radio, HDSDR, GQRX and GNU Radio.

Typical Applications: VHF/UHF/SHF Radio Monitoring, Coherent Receiver Array, Direction Finding, Passive Radar, ADS-B and ATC, Radio Astronomy, Satellite IF, Telemetry Radio Receiver, Wide Band Scanner, Education, Ham Radio, etc.
