|Discontinued Wideband Receiver Options|
The AOR TVA1 was designed primarily for use with the AOR AR5000 or AR5000+3, but also works with the Icom R8500. It demodulates audio and video TV signals. The signal is tapped from the 10.7 MHz IF output of the receiver. There is a switch on the front to select either conventional broadcast NTSC TV [AM] or security camera TV [FM]. (The European PAL format is not supported). There is a second switch to select 5.5 MHz or 6.5 MHz FM subcarrier frequency. The TVA1 operates from 12 VDC external power. A 39 inch (1 m) coaxial jumper cable with a male BNC at each end is supplied to connect the TVA1 to the receiver. There is an RCA phono jack for video and an RCA phono jack for audio. These jacks would typically connect to a composite video monitor (not supplied). Most newer televisions also have separate video and audio inputs, and could be used. (Please note that a VGA computer monitor will not work).
Special note to R8500 owner's:
Please note that American broadcast television converted to a digital format on 02/17/09. After this date you cannot view broadcast television with this device.
