    Many thanks for the feed back on your 5700D I wish I could say the same but this is the third time its gone deaf I only wish that the the AOR UK importer would just tell the truth because its very clear that there is a intermittent problem with one of the rf stages but all they keep telling me...

    Yes Mike this is where a independent RF lab would be the requirement as all AOR radios are imported via the same importer .Regarding Icom UK most of the gear here is all Icom and I have found it to be very built and over the years I have got to know the guys over there but it was just a thought...

    Yes I did think about them or having a chat to Icom UK , But after being told they found no problem with the radio and all they did was to adjust user controls . So I have ask them WHAT USER CONTROLS did they adjust ? Its only been back a month . But the word is as you said Honest as its very...

    Looks like it Mike ! Oh well its a nice trip to Portsmouth but they dont want to know since it was not bought from them but all repairs for AOR are done there or sent to AOR in Japan . I wonder what there going to say now . I need to find a well known RF lab that can test this radio sensitivity...

    Yes I fully agree that the radio is a lemon the problem is that they wont admit to it being a lemon , This is the third time its gone deaf and last time it went deaf it was sent to a independent PMR workshop who also confirmed it was deaf .But the AOR UK importer would not accept the report...

    Well I only hope it keeps working the good news is it only cost me shipping the radio to the importer as they found no fault with the radio and like In there words all they did was " No Changes or adjustments other than the normal user controls " Where made ? After I did many factory resets and...

    AR5700D First impressions

    Yes its working fine at the moment its just I find it strange that in there words " That No Changes or adjustments other than the normal user controls " This makes no sense as I did a full factory reset more than a few times and it made no change to the sensitivity it remained deaf .Also the...

    Thats sounds interested Mike and its something that the importer thought I was using but most antenna here all have there own feeds to give you some idea how many runs of LDF-450 and other feeds this does not include all the cables for the EME dish . I have used 2 x diamond triplexers before to...
