|Frequency Band(s):||VHF, UHF||Model:||
You are bidding on a used Alinco DR-605T UHF/VHF transceiver. Cosmetically, it is about a 6 on a scale of 10. The frequency change knob comes off easily, and the left side of the display backlight is dim but readable. I have owned the rig for 11 years, and have used it for voice and 1200 baud packet. It is capable of simultaneous receive on 2 m and 70 cm bands, and I have personnally used its cross-band repeat capability to extend HT range. The built-in duplexer allows direct connection of the rig to a dual band antenna.
Free Priority Mail shipping within the US is included.
Included with the radio are:
- Alinco EMS-45 DTMF hand mic
- Power cord with fuses and closed end lugs for attachment to vehicle battery or 12v (nominal) DC power supply, with the flexibility of both the original polarized power connectors (T-type - old ARES/RACES standard) and Anderson PowerPole connectors (new standard).
- A 8 1/2" x 11" unbound printed copy of the owner's manual.
100 MEMORIES, STANDARD
Memory channels to spare; 50 selections plus a CALL channel for each band. Store odd-spilts, cross-band settings, repeater offsets, CTCSS tones, simplex and even extended receive frequencies (like NOAA weather) in any of the memory channels. (See specification chart for extended receive ranges.)
Transmit on one band and receive on the other. Operate cross-band in full duplex (simultaneous transmit and receive). The DR-605T can also be used as a temporary cross-band repeater for special events or emergency use.
9600 OR 1200 BPS PACKET OPERATION
No modifications needed - the DR-605T comes ready to work your favorite packet mod on either or both bands. Dedicated 9600 bps packet connections are on the rear panel.
INTERNAL ANTENNA DUPLEXER
Connect your DR-605T directly to a dual-band antenna. You save by not having to purchase a duplexer or an extra antenna (plus coax and connectors). It's another way the DR-605T gets you on the air for less!
FREQUENCY + MEMORY CHANNEL DISPLAY
OR MEMORY CHANNEL ONLY
Simplify operations with the DR-605T's "Channel Only" display. Channel selection is easier for the new operator and a time-saver during emergency operations.
Scan the VFO or Memory Channels in ascending or descending order. Choose the scan "hold" with "timed" or "busy frequency" hold. Adjustable "Time Out" Timer, essential for packet and repeater operations. Choose the maximum amount of time the DR-605T will transmit.
INDEPENDENT VHF/UHF TX-RX INDICATORS
No guesswork! Know at a glance which band is receiving a signal. Glows green on receive and red when you transmit on either band.
"SET AND FORGET" SQUELCH CONTROL
No squelch knobs to accidently bump "open" or too high when adjusting volume. Squelch for each band is set by you and stays at that setting electronically, not mechanically, until you wish to adjust it.
Transfer data from a programmed DR-605T to an unprogrammed unit by wire. ideal for families or clubs, saves time and ensures uniformity.
CTCSS TONE SEARCH AND TONE SQUELCH
With the optional EJ-24U CTCSS tone decoder unit, the DR-605T will search for and identify a CTCSS tone in a received signal. This option also allows "tone squelch" operation. 50 CTCSS tone encode settings (transmit) included at no extra cost.
With the proper permits, the DR-605T can be modified to enable use on MARS/CAP frequencies.
