DX Engineering Receiver Guard 5000HD Plug-in Modules are the best RF limiter devices to choose when your receive antenna input could be subjected to high levels of RF. Our exclusive DXE-RG5000HD-PM Plug-In Modules are engineered to offer the ultimate in receiver front-end protection and are designed to be added inside any of these new DX Engineering receive devices:
DXE-NCC-2 Receive Antenna Phasing Systems
DXE-RPA-2 Modular Receive Preamplifiers
DXE-RTR-2 Modular Receive-Transmit Interfaces

DX Engineering 5000HD Plug-in Modules are specifically designed to protect a sensitive receiver front-end against high levels of RF from signals transmitted nearby. DX Engineering Receiver Guards are a must for multiple radio contesting stations and they provide low-cost front-end "insurance" in these common high-RF situations:
- Receive antennas in very close proximity to transmit antennas
- Field-day operations with many transmitters in close range
- Multi-transmitter contesting sites
- Neighboring Amateur and CB operators
- Frequent high-power mobile encounters

DXE-RG5000HD-PM modules work for all radios and offer the ultimate performance required by the upper tier of transceivers tested to have the best narrow-spaced third-order dynamic range or published RMDR (Reciprocal Mixing Dynamic Range). 

At the heart of each Receiver Guard Module is a highly effective electronic RF limiter covering 500 kHz to 150 MHz with an insertion loss under 0.15 dB at 50 MHz and under 0.3 dB to 150 MHz. Their multi-stage design includes a gas discharge tube for maximum pulse energy protection. These are passive electronic limiters, not filters, so competitive contesting stations still use separate band filters. 

For example Receiver Guard Modules can reject up to 10 watts of catastrophic receive antenna feedline RF while passing a signal of about 87 dB over S-9, which is only 25 mw! That level is well under the point of front end damage. When there are high levels of RF on your receive antennas, DX Engineering's Receiver Modules generate far less harmonic noise than other limiters on the market, which allows your station to continue to operate safely and competitively. At normal HF signal levels Receiver Guard operates continuously with no effect on the performance of your station while providing the best possible protection for your radio.

Here are some outstanding Receiver Guard 5000HD Plug-in Module features:

* Plugs directly into DX Engineering NCC-2 Receive Antenna Phasing Systems, DXE-RPA-2 Modular Receive Preamplifiers and DXE-RTR-2 Modular Receive-Transmit Interfaces
* Keeps stray high levels of RF from damaging your receiver input
* Ideal for separate 160 and/or 80 meter receive systems with large pulse and RF energy capture area
* Uses state of the art components for maximum protection of receivers 
* Under 6 ns response time
* Multi-Stage protection
* Very low insertion loss
* Has been developed and tested in world-recognized multi-multi contest station K3LR
