The AOR AR2300B is a wideband black box receiver that covers 40 kHz to 3150 MHz (less cellular) in: USB, LSB, CW, Wide FM, Narrow FM and AM modes. APCO P-25 mode is available optionally. 2000 Alpha memories store frequency, mode, antenna port and attenuator settings. Bandwidths are: CW 500 Hz, SSB 3 kHz, AM 6 kHz AM, FM 15 kHz, FM-Wide 200 kHz (-3 dB).
The supplied AR2300 Windows® software(for XP or higher) provides powerful control functions. The AR2300 can be controlled from today's netbook PCs.
8.5 x 2.75 x 11.25 inches 6.6 pounds.
Monitoring of given frequencies, e.g. storage of 1 to 2000 frequencies,
receiving modes, antenna port, attenuation settings, constant monitoring of one
frequency or scanning of selected frequencies.
Searching in a frequency range with freely select able start and stop frequency
and step widths of 0.001 kHz (1 Hz) to 999.99 kHz.
Detection of undesired emissions including pulsed emissions.
Detection of unlicensed transmitters communicating illegally or interfering with
Protection against tapping by detecting miniature transmitters (bugs)
Monitoring of one's own radio exercises in a service band and monitoring of
Remote-controlled operation via an optional LAN controller in coverage check
and monitoring systems.
