Receiving bandwidths of 3kHz, 9kHz, 12kHz and 150kHz (all BWs @ -6dB).
Features a 1,000 channel memory.
Enhanced short wave performance has been achieved by the addition of more bandpass filters and also a selection of alternative I.F. filters.
An AC plug pack is included.

Free freight Australia-wide!

In addition to the standard features of the AR-8200 Mk3, the AR-8200 Mk3-IR has been modified to be fully Night Vision Goggle (NVG) compatible for government applications. When the IR (Infra-red illumination) function is activated, the original green LED that illuminates the display and keypad is deactivated. The IR illumination intensity has been set to be compatible with the high sensitivity levels of military grade NVGs.
For this reason, it may be difficult to appreciate the difference between IR function ON and OFF when low specification or low sensitivity night vision goggles are utilised.

Compliment received

(16-09-14 by email)
 

Thank you once again for great service and very fast delivery. As usual you did an awesome job as the scanner worked straight out of the box without tuning it. That was amazing and I will let you know that soon I may order a second one of these. I actually purchased this one for my mum for a present so I will talk to you very soon in regards to ordering another one. Cheers Cameron. I hope you have a good day. Rob.
