The AOR AR5001D wideband receiver

The AOR AR5001D is a tabletop wideband receiver that could just as easily be classified as a “professional” receiver. It represents the some of the highest level of performance that a receiver can offer. We have included it as a tabletop radio simply because its footprint is similar to other tabletop receivers.
