AOR AR-DV1 Digital and DMR Scanner

There’s a new kid in town, the AOR AR-DV1 is the first scanner to support most popular digital radio modulation schemes including DMR, Alinco, Yaesu Fusion, Nexedge/iDas/NXDN4800, dPMR and Apco P25, it also supports all the usual analogue modulation types.

Over the past couple of years many PMR users in the UK have migrated to digital systems, the most common of which is DMR (Digital Mobile Radio) often Mototrbo which is a Motorola variant, there are also some NXDN Nexedge and iDas systems around.

The AR-DV1 does a pretty job of decoding these systems, you don’t need to know the Talkgroups, Radio Ids or Colour Codes of the DMR systems and the DV1 will even tell you the colour code with its latest 1601B firmware.
