Item specifics

Used: An item that has been previously used. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully ... Read moreabout the condition

Selling my Alinco Communications Receiver Model DX-R8E. In excellent condition both electrically and cosmetically. If I'm being critical, there are some small surface scratches on the right hand side of the receiver front panel. There are no dings, dents or other blemishes.

Receive has an IQ output at rear of unit that allows connection to your PC soundcard for using as an SDR. Free software is available from the web.

This is a reluctant sale and only selling to asssit in funding the purchase of a Kenwood TS-590.

Receiver comes in its original box with all original accessories. I also have the external AC Power supply and the Cloning/PC USB lead which I'll supply as part of the package.

Basic cost of the reciver is currently £549 from Nevada Radio without external power adaptor and USB Cloning Lead so opportunity to save over the new price
