Manufacturer’s Description

SCS Pactor Radio Modem: DR-7800 Dragon Pactor 4 - SCS Pactor Radio Modem - The P4dragon DR-7800 is a no compromise HF modem that outpaces products 3x the price. The Dragon line of modems are for people serious about their data. You can add Class 1 BlueTooth (BLUE) wireless to this standard (STD) model for a wireless connection to your computer.  The DR-7800 has been optimized for use with the new high-end data transmission mode PACTOR-4. This offers unexcelled fast and robust data links via shortwave; E-mail almost like at home – from any point on earth. The DR-7800 is software compatible to the PTC-II series so that existing PACTOR software (AirMail, RMS Express, Alpha etc) can continue to be used. The elegant design, and the excellently readable and informative OLED display, as well as the easy upgrade possibilities (free updates!) round up the concept of the most modern short-wave modem from SCS, the creators of PACTOR. Technical data •Data throughput: Maximum 5512 bps without compression.
