The R-9000 is a revolutionary all-mode, super wideband receiver that continuously covers a frequency range of 100 kHz to 1999.8 MHz. The most visible of the radio's many advanced features is the builtin multifunction CRT display. Receive frequencies, modes and additional useful data are displayed for your operating convenience. The CRT functions as a spectrum scope to show you, at a glance, the relative signal strengths of nearby receive frequencies. The span of the spectrum scope can be selected for 25, 50 or ñ100 kHz according to your needs. The screen can also display the contents of 10 memories at once, and can be scrolled to display other memories. The CRT can also be used as a display device to monitor RTTY or packet via an ASCII RS-232 input port (external data converter required).
The R-9000 boasts a total of 1000 memories (ten banks of 100) store frequencies, mode, filter width and tuning step increments. You can use different memory banks according to station type, frequency ranges or whatever your preference. By using the memory list screen, many more convenient functions are provided: up to eight character notes for your reference; and the advanced super convenient memory editor function easily moves, copies and deletes the memory contents. Tuning steps: 10 Hz, 100 Hz, 1 kHz, 5 kHz. 9 kHz, 10 kHz, 12.5 kHz, 20 kHz, 25 kHz and 100 kHz.
The R-9000 has seven different scan functions with adjust scan speeds up to 13 channels/sec. Program Scan scans between pre-programmed scan edges- Memory Scan scans memory channels. Selected Number Memory Scan scans memory channels with the same programmed mode. Priority Scan monitors specified memory channels. -IF Scan scans around the receiving frequency. Auto Memory Write Scan programs receive frequencies into memory channels (900-999) during programmed scan. The R-9000 also provides versatile scan resume functions when a signal is received: the scan cancels, pauses until a signal disappears. pauses for an adjustable time, or pauses for the mixed conditions of signal activity and time. The Voice Scan Control systems allows you to skip inconvenient signals such as signals with no modulation, heterodynes or noise. Superior interference rejection is achieved with both IF shift and notch filters. Control features include dual clocks with two kinds of sleep timers and five independent daily timers. Noise reduction is accomplished with a wide-narrow noise blanker. The squelch can operate by meter or noise level. A keypad is provided for rapid frequency entry.
The output of the CRT can be routed to an external monitor, and the CRT can act as a monitor for an external or internal video source. See TV or your RTTY decoder on the CRT! Back mounting handles are included Rear jacks include: DC Out, Ext. Spkr., Record Remote, Speech Out, Line Out, I F (10.7 MHz) Out, Video In & Out, Data In, Acc., plus four antenna jacks.
