AOR ARD-9800

Quick Overview

Convert your analogue voice transceiver to digital transmission

Excl. Tax: £449.96 Incl. Tax: £539.95


This is the only approved system at present to convert your analogue voice transceiver to digital transmission. No modifications are necessary, it's all in one box and very easily plugs into your transceiver. It works on SSB and automatically detects the signal as either analogue or digital and switches to the appropriate mode. A built-in vocoder (AMBE) delivers high-grade digital voice compression. High speed (3600bps) data communication is also possible on the HF bands. Additionally there is a built-in video capture function (at present only NTSC). This compresses the signal into AOR's original adaptive JPEG, thus enabling you to send and receive images (similar to analogue slow scan TV, but faster). A built-in video output connector (NTSC) allows viewing the picture on an external monitor. (Note digital mode will only work with other stations using the same digital system).
