    "4-MHz instantaneous bandwidth" - the paper's abstract
    DOD has had some pretty fancy radios. First gulf war they had a 'portable' with 5oo kHz instantaneous bandwidth from DC to near 10 GHz. IIRC it could display six 500 kHz segments at once on it's orange plasma screen. All manner of demodulators built in too.

    Wideband RX is not a real issue--so, what is the claimed advantage?

    BTW that dish shown hardly has the capability of being 'wideband'....

    Here's a better reference:

    The problem with Quantum Radios is the difficulty in finding trained Quantum Mechanics to maintain them.... ;)

    Reminds me of a joke ad I did in 1975--

    THERE"S BIG MONEY IN RADIO telescope REPAIR!!

    You took me back:)

    Ehhh, I'm waiting for them to work the bugs out with the first gen...

    What about it is quantum?

    do I own a quantum SDR now?

    With a quantum radio you can either hear the signal precisely, or know it's frequency precisely, but not both at the same time. :p
