X108 HF transceiver

The brand new X108 from Chongqing Xiegu Technology is a compact single conversion HF transceiver covering 0.5 to 30 MHz.  Boasting the latest in minimalist industrial design, it offers radio amateurs high quality HF capability at a very affordable price.

Attention to detail abounds in the X108 – the IF crystal filter stage, for instance, features customised military grade crystals for superb performance in both SSB (2.4 kHz) and CW (500 Hz) modes.

Other features include a switchable AGC circuit, preamplifier and signal attenuator, RIT control for SSB use, and RF output power variable from 1 to 20 Watts.  The front panel meter can display incoming signal strength, RF output power and VSWR, and the transceiver includes high VSWR protection circuitry to guard against potential damage to the output stage caused by antenna mismatching.

The RF output stage features imported RF MOS tubes and APC circuitry for constant output across all bands.  A noise blanker (NB) module is available as an option, as is a high stability 0.5 ppm TCXO module.

 A multi-function digital microphone is supplied as standard, allowing direct operation of many transceiver functions without the need to touch the front panel.

 Up to 32 frequencies can be stored in the X108’s memory bank, while a dedicated USB port is provided on the rear of the unit, allowing PC control via appropriate software with the use of a standard USB A-B cable.
