The Ultimate Receiver

High performance wide band all mode receiver with "Cyber Scan"
10kHz - 3000MHz
2000 channels, 40 Search Banks

The AR5000A provides amazing sensitivity and strong signal handing across an unprecedented wide frequency coverage with all mode receive tunable down to 1Hz steps... all this in a compact cabinet weighing just 3.5kg. No wonder this receiver has been adopted as the definitive receiver for professional operators, top-end hobbyists, government departments and armed forces throughout the world. The short wave performance is so good that separate receivers need not be considered.

Whether sitting on the desktop monitoring short wave transmissions or connected to aerial farms for wide band VHF-UHF monitoring (via the optional AS5000 4-way aerial switch with automatic bandplan switching), operators have been astonished how the seemingly impossible has been achieved... unparalleled high performance, an amazingly flexible operating system, high build quality featuring a metal cabinet - yet still remaining very compact.

Multiple units have been interconnected at airports for communication monitoring, others have been ported via RS232 intodial-up or LAN monitoring applications. The receiver has even been combined with the optional spectrum display unit and located in distant concrete bunkers controlled via a laptop computer and dial-up connection. There is little competition for comparison, 'the rest of the pack' are significantly larger, heavier or many times more expensive!
