AOT 8200 MK3 SCANNER

<p>
	<font face="Verdana" size="2">The AR8200 quickly established itself as the &#39;top notch&#39; hand portable receiver providing unsurpassed features. As technology has advanced, so the AR8200 has evolved through the AR8200 MK2 drawing from the successful award winning AR5000 base receiver and more recently from the AR8600 MK2 transportable receiver, resulting in the <strong>AR8200 MK3</strong> (with 3GHz coverage). Along with an extended receive frequency coverage, the illumination has been further enhanced and high capacity NiMH batteries supplied.<br />
	<br />
	A Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator (<strong>TCXO</strong>) forms the heart of the AR8200 MK3, this ensures <strong>high stability</strong> with <strong>minimal internal spurii</strong>... the TCXO replaces a crystal reference as commonly employed in other receivers and is usually only seen in top of the range (more expensive) table-top models such as the AR5000 and AR7030. Performance too has seen the AOR R&amp;D team fine tuning the front end switching circuitry<br />
	design for <strong>best sensitivity and strong signal handling</strong> over the extremely wide coverage of 530kHz to 3000MHz (all mode receive without gaps). A <strong>telescopic whip</strong> aerial on a swivel base is supplied with a small <strong>medium wave bar aerial</strong>. The <strong>illumination of the LCD and keypad is bright</strong> and switchable in a number of ways to help conserve battery power for extended operation. This includes the ability to <strong>AUTO switch the illumination</strong> when the keypad is touched or <strong>when a transmission opens the squelch</strong>... useful for night time operation. Continuing the strive for even longer operation between charges, the AR8200 MK3 is supplied with <strong>4 x AA size 150OmAhr NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride) batteries</strong>, again reflecting improvements in modern<br />
	technology. The list of features is vast, large multi-section backlit 2 LCD, side mounted keys and rotary tuning control, alpha numeric text comments.<br />
	<br />
	The all important <strong>8.33 kHz airband channel step</strong> is <em>correctly implemented</em> (eight-and-one-third, 33, 66, 00). Channel steps are provided via a menu and may be programmed. Step may be programmed by the operator in any receive mode using multiples of 50 Hz in any mode (i.e. 5 kHz, 12.5 kHz or even 1.25 kHz). Extensive <strong>step-adjust</strong> and <strong>frequency offset</strong> facilities are also provided (as per AR5000) to ensure tracking of the most obscure band plans, <strong>AFC</strong> (Automatic Frequency Control) is included for spot on tuning ensuring that nothing is missed. A wide frequency coverage is available from 530 kHz to 3000 MHz (no gaps) with actual minimum acceptable frequency of 100 kHz. The RF front-end is preselected around VHF to ensure the highest levels of adjacent channel rejection with software spurii cancellation. The short wave bands are converted directly to an IF of 45 MHz to remove compromise and a <strong>detachable plug in medium wave bar aerial</strong> is provided for localised monitoring with a negative feedback circuit employed.<br />
	<br />
	<strong>All mode receive:</strong> WFM, NFM, SFM (Super Narrow FM), WAM, AM, NAM (Wide, standard, Narrow AM), USB, LSB &amp; CW.<br />
	A 3.0 kHz SSB filter is employed with true carrier re-insertion resulting in non-offset frequency readout for easy tuning of SSB transmissions. An attenuator and noise blanker are also featured. A meaningful band plan is factory programmed specific to market area, this ensures that the AR8200 MK3 automatically selects the correct receive mode and tuning step (although mode and tuning step may be manually selected at any time), the band plan may be edited via computer control.<br />
	<br />
	The <strong>side keypad provides four arrow keys presented as a single &#39;rocker&#39; </strong>resulting in more natural and intuitive navigation through the on-screen menus. Tuning is accomplished via a variety of controls including a side panel indented main tuning dial, arrow keys and keypad. A larger than average back lit LCD with contrast control provides operational data with the ability to add <strong>12 character text comments</strong> to each memory channel, memory bank and search bank, a text search feature simplifies identification and recall of stored information.<br />
	Many text prompts aid operation making programming of search banks etc straight forward. Two frequencies may be displayed along with operating legends and high resolution signal meter and <strong>multi-function band scope</strong>. The band scope provides adjustable span width from 10 MHz to 100 kHz, you can move the marker, operate peak hold, transfer the marker frequency to VF0 and <strong>save trace</strong> for later recall. The stylish black cabinet has a quality feel with an excellent rear-illuminated keypad with a hard wearing finish.</font></p>
