AR-8600 MARK 2

The AR-8600 is an extremely versatile receiver that can be used virtually anywhere, mobile, base or portable. (thanks to optional internal BP-8600 batteries), it has a high resistivity metal casing that allows it to be highly resistant to aggressions. All mode reception including sideband with programmable hopping up to 50 Hz resolution. Frequency hopping 0.05khz (50hz), 0.1 khz (100hz), 0.2khz (200hz), 0.5khz (500hz), 1.00khz, 2.00khz , 5.00khz, 6.25khz, 8.33khz, 9.00khz, 10.00khz, 12.50khz, 20khz, 25.00khz, 30khz, 50khz, 100.00khz. Jump sizes can be programmed in multiples of 60hz (via keyboard) so unusual jumps can be programmed.
With an assured frequency stability thanks to its TCXO crystal (Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator). It has a backlit liquid crystal display, together with a complete front panel with numeric keyboard, navigation keys, and dial control. The display can show alphanumeric comments. A built-in RS-232 connector (no interface required) allows it to be connected directly to a computer with free software available over the network. The front of the AR-8600 has a new, more comfortable design with VHF preselection to ensure the highest levels of adjacent channel rejection and spurious cancellation. In addition to the telescopic antenna, it includes a special ferrite antenna for AM. It has a special 10.7 Mhz (FI) output so that the extracted signal can be used in a spectrum or vector analyzer such as the SDU-5600. It has correctly implemented the air band (8 Khz and 1/3). It has all the reception modes and even some special Aor modes: WFM, NFM, SFM (Super Wide FM) WAM, AM, NAM, USB, LSB and CW. It also includes an attenuator and a noise limiter. It has a preprogramming of the international band assignment plan, adjusting to the most suitable conditions (jump, mode, filter, etc.) most suitable for each frequency. It has a small band analyzer, which can show us the activity of a band (adjustable from 10 Mhz to 100 Khz) visually showing us the activity within a band, being able to move through it quickly and easily. The memory banks are totally dynamic, this means that we can redefine their size to fit our needs. It has the function of memory channels and protected search banks, thus preventing them from being accidentally erased. It has two rear slots for inserting the optional cards: EM-8200 (Memory expansion card) - CT 8200 (CTCSS decoder) - RU-8200 (Voice recording card) TE-8200 (Tone eliminator card) and VI 8200 (Analog decryption card).

How to access the AR8600MARK2 by PC?

To be able to control our scanner from the pc we only need the following:

PC-RS232 cable

Once the program is downloaded, we must install it on our pc, for this it is necessary to unzip the file and click on the setup icon, fill in the data that it requests and click on next.

Once the program is installed, we will configure the scanner for this, it is necessary to connect it to the power supply and follow the following steps (see page 108 of the manual)

First we will press the FUNC key and then the 7 key. Once this is done we must press the downward arrow until the Remote option appears on the screen.
Now we will edit the port speed, we recommend selecting 9600. To vary the speed we must press the left or right arrow key (<- or ->).

Once we have made this configuration, we will adjust the program. To do this, we open the program by pressing the AOR Workshop icon.

We open the program and then click on the Setup tab and then on Communications .

When the new window opens, we will fill in the options as follows

Radius: 8600
Baudrate: 9600 (or whatever you have chosen in the scanner)
Port: The port we have assigned and where we will connect the scanner.
GPS: We can leave it as standard since now we are not interested in this option.

Once this is filled in, click OK and close the program

We connect the scanner to the power supply, connect it to the PC using the PC-RS232 cable and open the program, at this moment we can use our PC to send orders to the scanner, take advantage of databases downloaded from the network, etc ...
