AOR AR5000

The AOR AR5000B offers exceptional spectrum coverage. Covering all the way from 10 kHz to 2.6 GHz (less cellular), this "DC to daylight" radio won't miss much! Modes of reception include: AM, FM-N, FM-W, LSB, USB and CW. Six bandwidths are supplied (3, 6, 15, 30, 110 and 220 kHz.) and a slot for a 0.5 kHz filter is available. The triple conversion circuit and varactor tuned front-end provide excellent overload characteristics. Two thousand memories in 20 banks of 100 are featured. Each memory channel may hold: frequency, mode, band width, LPF, HPF, de-emphasis, tuning step, step-adjust, frequency off-set, AGC, attenuator, CTCSS tone, antenna selection, 8 character text tag and lockout! Sophisticated scanning is available including channel pass, select scan and auto-store. Besides normal scanning (25 memories per second), there is also CyberScan (45 seconds) without channel tags. Scanning search (sometimes called sweep or spectrum scan) is also supported, allowing the radio to automatically tune between user-defined frequencies.

The large front panel is very comfortable to use. Other features include: two antenna inputs (N and SO-239), antenna attenuator, keypad entry, computer control, audio filter, dial torque adjustment, mute, AGC, lock, RS232 port, squelch, analog S-meter, preamp, removable feet raisers, scanning (25/50 channels/second) and sweep. In FM mode the AGC may be set to Off or On. In other modes the AGC may be set to Off, Fast, Middle or Slow. This radio may be run from 12 VDC at 1 Amp (with optional DC3000 power cord) or via supplied 110 VAC adapter. There is a programmable 10.7 MHz IF output on the back to drive the optional SDU5500. There is also a programmable 10 MHz External Frequency Standard input jack [BNC] for laboratory applications.

The AR5000U model was the same as above, but without the 824-849 / 869-894 MHz cellular gap and could be purchased via government or qualifying commercial purchase order or for export only.
