AOR USA has announced the addition of the ARD300 Multi-Mode Decoder to its product lineup. Designed to work with existing receivers having a 10.7 MHz or 45.05 MHz IF output, the Decoder will convert digital voice signals into conventional audio. The ARD300 is capable of monitoring APCO P25 , NXDN, Icom D-Star, Digital CR, Yaesu, Kenwood and Alinco EJ-47U digital signals.
The ARD300 uses the higher bandwidth of the IF signal and converts the digital signals, making them audible through an internal or optional external speaker. The Decoder will also improve the readability of existing analog narrowband FM signals.
The ARD300 can be used with AOR ‘legacy” receivers such as the AR8600 MK2, AR5000(A/+3) and newer models such as the AR2300, AR5001D, AR6000 and with factory modification, the AR8200MK3 hand-held receiver. It is also usable with many other manufacturer’s receivers that have a wide-band IF output of 10.7 MHz or 45.05 MHz, however, AOR limits support of the ARD300 for use with AOR receivers.
