AeroStream Communications near Golden, Colorado entered the hobby radio market in 2013 with their revolutionary CommRadio CR-1 and follow up CR-1a SDR receivers.

The CommRadio CTX-10 blends high performance, internal SDR technology, high efficiency circuit design, compact size and simple operation. This QRP radio is ideal for field use and emergency operations. Transmitter covers the 80-10 meter amateur bands with output power selectable at 1, 5 or 10 watts.

The efficient and sharp OLED display is readable in low or high lighting conditions. CW semi-break-in is supported. The radio has three built-in #18650 3.7V 2600 mAh Li-ion batteries providing 28.8 watt-hours of operation. A built-in intelligent charger provides seamless power management. The general coverage receiver section uses multiple preselectors for optimized reception from 150 kHz to 30 MHz. An integrated CW keyer, CW reader (Beta) and antenna tuner enhances operation. The premium tuning knob optical encoder is rated at a million revolutions. Entire enclosure is aluminum with machined aluminum knobs. External connections are through-hole mounted for durability.
