Osaka AN-2000A

Greetngs all

I would really like to get my hands on one of these OIRT radios as shown here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4eCDFs5yQI

IT seems like a very rare radio to obtain second hand but a member may know of a source etc

Regards
Dave

I have exactly the same thoughts. My wife's Dutch uncle lives in Moscow and next time he is here I will ask if he sees such things in markets. People must have lots of them lying around but are they any good for dx purposes?

My immediate reaction is that it will not be very good for DX purposes. I've found an RTL dongle to be better than a modern Tecsun PL390 for the simple reason that with the spectrum display you can see exactly what frequency the signal is on and it becomes very easy to see two stations 30kHz apart. And with the ability to really wind the bandwidth down - to separate them out sufficiently to identify them. With a PL390 it was guess work to +/- 30kHz - I had to go off channel in both directions to decide where the centre frequency was.

MY view is this radio is probably quite sensitive as my Unitra Diora I got from Poland a few years ago does well for OIRT anyway...

The chances of ever getting one are very very unlikely though I realize
