AOR AR8600 MARK 2 - Wideband Communications Receiver

AOR AR8600 Mark II Communications Receiver

The AR8600 Mark 2 is an amazingly versatile receiver which can be used mobile, base or trans-portable. Powered from an external 12V DC power supply, 12V vehicle or from an optional internally fitted NiCad battery pack. Due to continuous development of our products, the AR8600 Mark2 has been enhanced in several areas. The upper frequency range has been extended to 3000MHz (3.0GHz), lower band sensitivity has been increased (now officially covering to 100kHz) with an enhancement to short wave performance by the addition of further bandpass filters and selection of alternative I.F. filters. Mini-Circuits RMS1 / RMS2 mixers have been employed with active SPM aerial switching devices (not diode-switching) abundantly employed throughout the signal path. The AR8600 Mark2 provides remarkable short wave performance, making other similar wide band competitors mediocre by comparison.
