If the preliminary information is accurate, the AOR AR-DV1 will be THE receiver of choice when you want to listen in to modern communication.
Until now, multi-mode meant AM, FM (wide & narrow), SSB and CW. The AOR adds the following popular digital modes:
- DMR (Digital Mobile Radio),
- dPMR (Digital Private Mobile Radio),
- Yaesu Digital (System Fusion),
- Alinco Digital,
- AOR G4GUO ( as used in ARD9000/9800)
As you can see AOR even added a voice inverter, better known as scrambler (or, in this case, de-scrambler). AOR also promises an excellent image rejection and ultra-low internal spurious thanks to 1st I.F frequency set to 1.705GHz.
Communications can be recorded and stored on an SD card. No word on pricing at this time.
