The AOR AR-DV1U wideband communications receiver covers 100 kHz to 1300 MHz in traditional analogue modes (SSB, CW, AM, FM, S-FM, W-FM) as well as various digital modes. In fact, we know of no other radio in this category that can decode Icom's D-Star mode, Yaesu's new C4FM mode, Alinco's digital mode, NXDN (note: 6.25 kHz only), P25 Phase 1, etc. Interesting features include:  2000 Memories (in 40 banks of 50), Memory Scan, AM Synchronous Detection, Noise Reduction, Notch, Digital Data Display, Clock, Calendar, Alarm, Timer. The SD/SDHC jack supports logging functions. There is also a micro USB port. This radio will support field firmware updating. High performance is achieved since the receiver employs direct conversion below 18 MHz and triple conversion superheterodyne above 18 MHz.

This very compact radio is only 7.1 x 2 x 8.5 inches (178×50×215mm). The rear panel features a single BNC antenna jack, speaker jack, aux jack and 12 VDC input jack. Please note that AOR receivers, including the AR-DV1, do not support trunk-tracking.

Rotate the dial knob to select “RF-G”.
To change the RF gain manually, rotate the squelch knob. To cancel the manual RF gain control,
repeat the steps above. 
(Note: The manual RF gain control is not available while the receiver is in AGC mode.) 


It’s the FIRST multi-mode digital voice receiver to receive and decode virtually ALL popular digital modes including: MOTOTRBO(tm), DMR, dPMR(tm), APCO P25 Phase I, NXDN(tm), Icom D-Star(tm), Digital CR, Yaesu, Kenwood®, and Alinco EJ-47U as well as conventional analog signals.

With this breakthrough development, AOR offers the monitoring community a powerful new tool that receives multiple digital formats in addition to traditional analog operations in a compact receiver built for high sensitivity and selectivity.

The AOR AR-DV1B wideband communications receiver covers 100 kHz to 1300 MHz (less cellular on U.S. consumer "B" version) in traditional analog modes (SSB, CW, AM, FM, S-FM, W-FM) as well as various digital modes. In fact, we know of no other radio in this category that can decode Icom's D-Star mode, Yaesu's new C4FM mode, Alinco's digital mode, NXDN, P25 Phase1, etc.

I wasn't sure whether to get this receiver or not. Having read varying reviews, some quite critical and and other not that good I bit the bullet and got it a couple of weeks ago. When I opened it up I thought the blue decorative part on the front panel was protective film and discovered that it was not and was the finished product! I find it pretty substantially made and not at all flimsy as I got the impression from illustrations that it was. It is pretty solid and appears well made to me. It is rather strange and the screen flashes when you connect the power supply even if the receiver is turned off and then a cracking sound from the speaker. I have so far put them down to quirks as it seems to work fine apart from that. If there is one thing which I do not like then it is the tuning knob not so much as it is sort of rubbery, but it is too clicky and does not turn freely if you try to use the indent and just insert a finger it just does not go. You have to hold the knob with finger and thumb or support your hand on the receiver and turn it with your thumb. It is ok on the channelised parts, but not good if you want to tune ssb or cw. It does receive well on HF and the VHF and UHF bands I have tried and I bought it specifically to listen to the digital voice transmissions. I find it works very well and I have listened to DMR and NXDN transmissions on it with the receiver automatically sensing which mode it is receiving. I have not tried the record function on it or the scanning facilities but thought it may be of use to give my initial findings. To sum up, I think I am glad I got it, even though I think it somewhat overpriced. I cannot see any other alternative models which will receive the wide range of modes which this receiver will. I am enjoying using it and have so far found no problems with it. I am going to give it a good rating as I don't like the flashing screen on power up or the click when it turns on, or the tuning knob.
