CountyComm GP-5/SSB GEN 3

The CountyComm GP-5/SSB GEN 3 is an updated version of the wildly successful GP-5/SSB. Like its predicessor, it provides serious HF communications monitoring in a unique form factor and at a great price. The radio covers medium wave 520-1710 kHz shortwave 1711-30000 kHz and the FM band in stereo. It will even cover longwave 150-520 kHz, when the 9 kHz AM step is selected. Unlike most radios in this price category, the GP-5/SSB provides LSB and USB single sideband reception with its own narrow bandwidth. It has a very unique Easy Tuning Mode (ETM). ETM does more than the usual ATS. It scans all frequencies without taking up the memory spaces. So you get quick access to all local stations. Great for the traveller. There are also 550 regular memories (100 AM, 100 FM, 250 shortwave and 100 for SSB) available for tuning into your favorite stations. Another unique feature of the radio is its removable, directional AM ferrite antenna. This directional antenna clearly enhances AM band reception. The CountyComm GP-5/SSB GEN3 employs DSP (Digital Signal Processing) technology, improving clarity and tone quality. There is even an adjustable sleep timer. The "AM Antenna Input" jack on the top panel connects to both the medium wave and shortwave sections of the radio.

   Specific enhancements for this "GEN 3" version include:
         colored keys,  improved whip antenna,  louder audio and  longer run time.

The CountyComm GP-5/SSB GEN 3 can be powered by three AA batteries (not included). It also has 5V mini-USB DC input jack. When using the USB jack, the radio can be used to charge the batteries (rechargeable Ni-MH AA batteries only). Your CountyComm GP5/SSB GEN3 system includes:  snap-on belt clip, LW/MW bar antenna, carry pouch, stereo ear buds, clip-on wire antenna and manual. 2.1 x 6.3 x 1 inches 4.5 oz.
