That's the first time I've seen a radio with built-in FreeDV.
From the site:

No idea of price yet and it looks pretty clunky but great to see FreeDV built right in. (If there are others please let me know).
Greetings, really very interesting article, I have done some tests with freedv, it is interesting to see how it encodes and decodes the signal, I guess with this radio it should be more precise, very interesting article .... thanks ,,, YY7LAS
That Chinese receiver is a stolen clone of the work done by Chris M0NKA. http://www.m0nka.co.uk
Don't buy them, support M0NKA directly
AFAIK mchf is open source, so it would not be a ripoff
I like the way Chinese manufacturers are picking up open source designs and making cheap kits. There are CW QRP transceivers and QRP antenna tuners available at below the price we would pay for the components.
Lol that's news to me but good to see! The Flex radios also have a FreeDV option via their API, but I guess that's slightly different. About 6 months ago I had a nice time working with Danilo from mcHF - he did some great work on optimising FreeDV for this platform, and cleaning the code up.
AM Receive only? Oh well, next.
Coming soon to an Amazon near you:
Also available here for a considerably lower price:
