No one knows yet for sure. My guess is somewhere around 1000 USD.

Thanks for the heads up. Pricey but just the 20 MHz+ screen capture alone is worth the extra cash.

Do we think this is ever going to be released?

I was all ready to buy one ready for the 2017 Es season and here we are starting the 2018 season and still no sign of it going on sale. I've seen the ads, the one off unit at the shows and yet every time someone asks the developer when is it going on sale they're ignored. So what's the issue with it?

It's 950 euro at: http://ecom.eladit.com/epages/990298944 ... 0FDM-S3%22

Whether they shipping or not, that I do not know, but it is available for order.

Have anybody done any tests of it yet?

Comparing it to the S2 or HF+?

One comparison I found has the S2 at a slight lead over the HF+: https://dk8ok.org/2017/12/06/airspy-hf- ... t-you-get/ (Not a major lead, in terms of sound, but still a tad better)

It would be very interesting to hear if the S3 sounds better than the S2 or if its improvements are other things than sound (By 'sound' I mean clarity and legibility of signals)
