The HRD-747 sounds very interesting, does anybody know of any time frames around it being released.
It was supposed t have been released by April but I have not seen anything more than that initial look at an engineering prototype from February.

I have always looked at do-it-all zero-to-light portable receivers with a jaundiced eye as they rarely perform as well in actual use. Starting with the Icom IC-R1 many, many years ago. But I think the adoption of DSP technology changes a lot of that for the better (look at all the cheap, competent, tiny SILabs based boxes for sale on Ali, eBay, and Amazon) so maybe this one will show that the designers actually learned from earlier efforts.
