The Chinese Malachite SDR knock off group is here:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/2673986352928589/ and apparently the
firmware is here: https://yadi.sk/d/4ZgsrswxYClG1Q

I contacted the designer/producer of Malachiet SDR, Georgy Yatsuk, with
regard to obtaining one, here is his Google Translate response:

Greetings!
The price is as follows:
- printed circuit board 1200r
- display -1600r - not yet available
- case - 1600r - not yet available
- a ready-made kit for assembly (with a display and a case, the board is not
unsoldered) - 9800r - readiness 1.5 months - while the position is not
available
- finished board (without display, case, board unsoldered) - 10600 r
- ready-made receiver 14,000r without optional board.

An optional board has been developed for the receiver, which contains an
active antenna (for a telescopic antenna), additional RF filters and an
attenuator.
The board is designed to improve HF reception. The fee is purchased
separately.
Frequency range - 50 kHz to 249.999 MHz, 400 MHz to 2 GHz.
The receiver is designed for use with an 18650 battery, but does not come
with a battery!

Attention! Due to the coronavirus, a delay is likely due to the long
delivery of some components from China!
Due to the change in the dollar exchange rate and the need to purchase
components for these same dollars, an increase in the cost of all positions
was made.

Information about the radio receiver here:
https://rx9cim.ucoz.ru/publ/radiopriemnik_malakhit_dsp/1-1-0-19
https://yadi.sk/d/4ZgsrswxYClG1Q
Terms may change due to delivery delays.
Ready-made receivers are not available. Manufactured by pre-order - let me
know if you are ready to buy and I will include you in the queue.
At the moment it is 2 months, to be specified before prepayment.
Prices include shipping within Russia. Delivery outside of Russia is paid
extra.

Receiver warranty 1 year from date of shipment.
The warranty is provided in the form of warranty repairs. Warranty service
is not performed if there are traces of mechanical damage or soldering.
Shipping is carried out at the expense of the buyer.

Delivery by Russian post.
Payment to a Sberbank card (preferred), qiwi wallet.
For information:
Some functions will be implemented in new firmware.
It was found that reception in the 250-400 MHz band is impossible. Only
using an external converter.
If you previously received this letter, then do not pay attention.

Hi Larry,

did you manage to operate the CAT control in both directions? I just can read the frequency (using WSJT-x), but not set it.
