Iím interested in knowing if there is an operational and technical comparison of the new Airspy HF+ to the performance of the Perseus SDR, and possibly to non-SDR receivers like the AOR7030 receiver?  Iím particularly interested in the IP3 levels of the Airspy HF+, along with the RF dynamic range before saturation, as compared to that of the Perseus.

There's some specs on the HF+ on this page (scroll down): https://airspy.com/airspy-hf-plus/

Note this is the existing HF+ not the new Discovery model which is not yet released.
