The AOR AR-8200 MarkIII scanner has frequency coverage from 0.5-3000 MHz and receives AM, Narrow AM, USB, LSB, CW, Auto, WFM, NFM, SFM. It has an even better Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator for solid frequency stability. AOR have improved the RF circuits resulting in greater sensitivity, resistance to intermod products and enhanced Signal to Noise ratios.
Supplied with the unit are two NiMH AA cells that can be charged whilst the AR-8200 MarkIII B is in operation.
Interestingly this AOR scanner is expandable due to the development of a slot card system. There are 5 different slot cards to choose from which increase the options available to the operator - Choose from Memory Expansion (up to 4,000 memories), CTCSS Squelch & Search, Tone Eliminator, and Record Audio (saves up to 20 seconds of audio) .
