Measurements

Preliminary performance measurements of VXSDR-20 v. 1.1.4 board number 0002 on September 7-9, 2021.

We are still tuning the radio's internal settings (particularly the LO synthesizers), so there may be slight changes in performance with the final version. Any changes should be minor (1 dB or less).
