Hi Chris.

The only way I am aware of is if the radio has two ADCs.  Currently, that would be the Flex 6700 and the ANAN 100D or 200D.

Was hoping for a Angelina type 1/2 watt board but they want the same kind of money as the ft-991 which covers bands they don't, of course apples and oranges.
Thanks
Chris

Take a look at this radio:

It has two phase-synchronized receiver channels and costs about $300

Very interesting receiver I do need transmit however. But thanks for the link this may fit the bill for another project I have been looking at.
Thanks

I am sure this is not a new thought to you -- but why not re-consider the Flex 1500 QRP radio.  Not as state of the art as you want, no doubt, but it is an easy way to get on the entry level highway.  If I have totally missed the point -- please excuse.  Have a great day -- and thanks for sharing with us.  Randy  K4LJA

Hey randy, I really prefer the idea of qrp systems seems to be a lot less hassle my plan is to use one of the windham (OCF) style wire multiband antenna's, beams and such are out of the question my wife would hang me from the tower. Really had not given any thought to the Flex line I for some reason just gravitated toward the Apache stuff not sure if it was just the Chevrolet/Ford augments that seem to be a recurring event on all the sites. But I will go back and look at the 1500 the price point is more manageable and I am sure that even the most basic SDR will have features that a novice wont fully utilize.
Thanks

Chris the Flex-1500 is on sale until 12/23 for $650 with free shipping. BTW that is $50 off the list price. http://cart.flexradio.com/FlexSeries-Radios_c_1.html

Check out the eham reviews of this rig. http://www.eham.net/reviews/detail/8986

This is the one I bought, should be delivered today: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00C37AZXK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

"Provides an approximate tuning range of 25MHz-1700MHz"

For software itself, look at
http://www.sdrsharp.com/#download
and
http://hdsdr.de/

Remember that most of these are receive only, no transmit options, thus why the transmitting versions cost hundreds.
