The AOR AR-DV1 wideband communications receiver covers 100 kHz to 1300 MHz in traditional analog modes (SSB, CW, AM, FM, S-FM, W-FM) as well as various digital modes. In fact, we know of no other radio in this category that can decode Icom's D-Star™ mode, Yaesu's new C4FM mode, Alinco's digital mode, NXDN™ (note: 6.25 kHz only), P25 Phase 1, DMR (Tier 1 Tier 2 modes, unencrypted), dPMR, etc. Interesting features include: 2000 Memories (in 40 banks of 50), Memory Scan, AM Synchronous Detection, Noise Reduction, Notch, Digital Data Display, Clock, Calendar, Alarm, Timer. The backlit display may be adjusted as well as the color of the backlighting on the keys. Multiple tuning steps are available: 10, 50, 100, 500 Hz, 1, 2, 5, 6.25, 7.5, 8.33, 9, 10, 12, 15, 20, 25, 3, 50, 100 and 500 kHz. Multiple bandwidths may be selected: FM 200, 100, 30, 15 and 6 kHz., AM 15, 8, 5.5 and 3.8 kHz., SSB 2.6 and 1.8 kHz., CW 500 or 200 Hz.
The front panel SD/SDHC jack supports logging functions. There is also a front panel micro USB port. This radio will support field firmware updating. High performance is achieved since the receiver employs direct conversion below 18 MHz and triple conversion superheterodyne above 18 MHz.
This very compact radio is only 7.1 x 2 x 8.5 inches (178×50×215mm). The rear panel features a single BNC antenna jack, speaker jack, aux jack and 12 VDC input jack. Please note that AOR receivers, including the AR-DV1, do not support trunk-tracking. The AR-DV1B comes with a BNC telescopic antenna, 4 or 8 Gb SD card and DC power supply (12 VDC [+]).
