AOR AR5001DB wideband communications receiver
The AOR AR5001DB wideband communications receiver covers 40 kHz to 3150 MHz (less cellular) in: USB, LSB, CW, Wide FM, Narrow FM, AM and AM Synchronous modes. APCO P-25 mode is available optionally. 2000 Alpha memories store frequency, mode, step, de-emphasis, AGC mode, CTCSS, DCS, auto notch, antenna port and attenuator settings. Bandwidths are: 200 Hz, 500 Hz, 3 kHz, 6 kHz, 15 kHz, 30 kHz, 100 kHz, 200 kHz and 300 kHz (-3 dB). There are two dual frequency modes. In the dual offset mode you can listen to two frequencies in the same band (± 5 MHz). In the regular dual frequency mode you can listen to a VHF/UHF frequency and an HF frequency, even if different modes. The special tri-frequency mode allows HF reception combined with the dual offset mode!
This radio features five VFOs, DTMF tone decode, CW pitch control, Auto notch, noise reduction, noise blanker, keypad entry, a precision signal meter and SD card port. It also has a high resolution spectrum display function. The AR5001D comes with well filtered DC supply, manual and SD card. We had an opportunity to test-drive the new AR5001D here at Universal on June 15, 2010 and we were most impressed!
