The AOR AR-DV10 wideband communications receiver covers 100 kHz to 1300 MHz in traditional analogue modes (SSB, CW, AM, SAM, FM) as well as various digital modes including: APCO P-25 (Phase 1), D-CR, DMR (Tier I & II), Mototrbo, dPMR, NXDN™, TETRA, Alinco EJ-47 GMSK, D-STAR and Yaesu FUSION. Thanks to its Digital Auto-Mode Feature, a received signal type is instantly recognized and the new AR-DV10 is automatically switched to the applicable Digital or Analog modes. Specific receive mode can be also manually set, to meet the variety of users’ preference. This feature allows for easy tuning and exploring of the frequency band without the need to determine what digital or analog format is being used. These superior features have been made possible through the simplified circuit utilizing the latest SDR digital processing technologies equipped with an Altera Cyclone IV FPGA and an analogue Blackfin DSP.
The front speaker and a 700mW audio amplifier combine to offer clear voice communications even in noisy environments. The AR-DV10 can store 2,000 memory channels (40 banks of 50 channels), and various scanning options are available. Priority Reception function permits checking for activity on priority channel frequency to listen for any signals at a preset interval time, while the receiver continues scanning, searching or monitoring; this provides a large number of applications and is particularly useful for monitoring a distress frequency while scanning or searching another frequency band. The One-touch Recording feature enables a user to record a received audio signal with a touch of the “REC” button on the front panel and audio recordings can be easily played and saved to the micro SD card as a WAV file. Safe, free firmware updates are made to the supplied 8Gb SD card via your computer. AOR offers a free browser based memory control program via a download.
Three different VFOs are available (A/B/Z). Supported bandwidths include FM 6/15/30/100 kHz, AM 3.8/5.5/15 kHz, SSB 1.8/2.6 kHz and CW 200/500 Hz. Stability is ±5 ppm. It meets IPX 5 environmental standards. It has a MicroSD card-slot that supports audio recording.
