FEATURED IN USCCA CONCEALED CARRY MAGAZINE - AN EDITORS CHOICE AWARD RECIPIENT!
Amazing for emergency kits. It also makes an excellent monitor for when you're transmitting and tuning a HAM rig!
The new GP-5 SSB radio is made based on a continued request for an excellent quality general purpose information radio. These radios are customized for a specific client request with the help of Edison Fong Ph.D. We have a few left over to offer to our consumer preppers. Remember, always have a radio and be prepared, we are living in changing times.
We are pleased to present the GP-5/SSB radio with excellent HF communications monitoring in a unique handheld form factor and at a great price. The radio covers low wave 150-520kHz; medium wave 520-1710 kHz; shortwave 2300-30000 kHz and the FM band. Unlike most radios in this price category, the GP-5/SSB provides LSB and USB single sideband reception on all bands except FM. It has a very unique Easy Tuning Mode (ETM). ETM does more the usual ATS. It scans all frequencies without taking up the memory spaces. So you get quick access to all local stations. Great for the traveler. There are also 450 regular memories (100 AM, 100 FM and 250 shortwave) available for tuning into your favorite stations. Another unique feature of the radio is its removable high sensitivity external AM ferrite antenna. This directional antenna clearly enhances AM band reception. The GP-5/SSB even employs DSP (Digital Signal Processing) technology, improving clarity and tone quality. There is even an adjustable sleep timer and thermometer!
