             FACTORY RECONDITIONED SUNAIR RT-9000B MILITARY HF TRANCEIVER


Presented for your consideration, a factory refurbished SUNAIR RT-9000B military HF tranceiver.    This is a rare opportunity to own a factory refurbished, current issue military HF radio with full coverage of all the HF bands.  

Perfect for the ham radio operator, military collector or as a great radio to use in SHTF situations.  This radio will withstand the harshest of conditions and is completely repairable due to extensive english documentation.  

These are truly rare and hard to find, even in poor condition.  This one is PRISTINE!  I doubt you will ever see another one of these units with a complete factory QA report in such perfect condition.  

I have watched ebay for the last 5 years for one of these and only saw the remote units come up for auction.  Most of the Sunair gear available is of the previous generation.  

These radios are still in service and are used by the US coast guard and all branches of the military.  Original cost of these radios was over $14,000.   I have the original box and all the papers from the factory that you see here.     

The manual can be downloaded from the link provided at the bottom of this listing.

This radio was completely refurbished by Sunair in 2009 and has not been returned to active service since being refurbished.  I only fired it up a few times to test the functionality.   It passes all the Built In Test Equipment checks with flying colors.   Don't miss your chance to add this radio to your collection!  

This radio is not considered a munition under ITAR regulations.  However,  if you are an international buyer, please contact us with any questions regarding shipping to your country.

All reasonable offers will be considered.

Below are the factory specs.  Please note the factory QA tests for this unit are shown in the pictures above. 


SUNAIR RT-9000B

DIRECT DIGITAL SYNTHESIZER, 10 MS LOCK SELECTABLE AGC REMOTE OR COMPUTER CONTROL INTERNAL FED STD 1045 ALE OPTION

KEYPAD ENTRY FOR 128 CHANNELS, MODE, AGC, POWER LEVEL, ETC.

TWO SELECTABLE 600 OHM AUDIO PORTS

COMPREHENSIVE BITE HIGH SPEED DATA CAPABILITY TADIL-A/LINK 11 SSB CAPABILITY AC POWER SUPPLY WITH AUTOMATIC

CHANGEOVER TO 28 VDC LF/MF/HF/RECEIVER SCANNING PRE/POST SELECTOR PORTS

The RT-9000B/RT-9000A Digital HF/SSB Transceiver combines powerful microprocessors and robust analog circuitry in a ruggedized package to meet the demands of today's HF data and voice networks. Its conservatively rated solid state RF power amplifier delivers 65 or 125 Watts PEP and Average power with a 100% duty cycle. The receiver utilizes a dual conversion technique employing a low-noise wide dynamic range front end. Modes of operation include USB, LSB, AME, CW, and Data (with external modems).

With the internal ALE modem, optional in the RT-9000A, the RT-9000B/RT-9000A provides Automatic Link Establishment per the interoperability requirements of MIL-STD-188-141A and Federal Standard 1045. The internal ALE modem eliminates the need for external controllers and PC workstations.

Data operating modes such as MIL-STD-203-1A TADIL-A/Link 11 (SSB operation per Paragraph 5.3.2) and MIL-STD-188-110A/B are accommodated using special delay compensated IF filters and other customized features that are standard in the RT-9000B and optional in the RT-9000A.

The RT-9000B is a factory configured version of the RT-9000A that includes the necessary options for ALE and high speed data operation.

A widescreen LCD presents the current operating status such as frequency, channel, mode, BFO, AGC, power, local or remote control. A bar graph meter selectively indicates S-meter, forward and reverse RF power and 600 ohm transmit and receive audio levels. A softkey menu LCD below the main display permits the operator to select a variety of features such as meter, speaker control, plus any custom features.

The RT-9000B/RT-9000A incorporates an improved comprehensive built-in-test (BITE) capability to the Lowest Replaceable Unit (LRU) sub assembly. Rear panel connections allow direct interfaces of the F-9800 Pre/Post Selector to overcome effects of co-location interference.

The power supply is of linear design reducing the undesirable effects of RFI and EMC. It accommodates both AC and 28 VDC (12 VDC with the PS-9010 converter) inputs via separate connectors and automatic changeover if the AC power fails.RT-9000B/RT-9000A
