R - 5000
überarbeitet am 21.10.2010
Kenwood introduced the R-5000 as a high end communications receiver in a similar
design to the one of the TS-440 in 1987.
The Kenwood R-5000 is a PLL synthesized double conversion (in FM mode triple conversion) communications receiver covering frequencies up to 30 MHz. It can be operated from different mains voltages and also for mobile operation from 13,8 V DC with the optional DGK-2 kit.
The desktop receiver is with it's dimensions (280 x 110 x 300 mm) and weight (5.6 kg) quite compact.
The R-5000 is a high end communications receiver aiming at the same avid shortwave
listener community as the Icom R-71 or JRC's NRD-525.
