RARE ARF 2001 CB Scanning Transceiver

I have for sale a rare and collectible Citizens Band radio. It was made by
A.R.F. Products Inc. in the late 70's. It had a retail price of $ 1000.00 and
was produced in small quantities. Estimates indicate less than 1000 were
produced. It was made in America using only American parts. The internal
layout was similar to commercial communications gear; with different PC boards
for each Stage .

The SAM switch controls the Servo Amplitude Modulation circuit; an enhancement
similar to a processor that A.R.F. incorporated into this design.

Above the normal controls on the bottom are switches for some unique features. The PA
is a familiar function but the ARF-2001 added a twist; TALK BACK. It was used to allow the ARF-2001 to be used in an
industrial or commercial site as an intercom; allowing the PA Speaker mounted
in another department to be used as a microphone to communicate back to the
office. In addition the External Speaker switch allowed another listening
device to be mounted and controlled via the front panel. To the right of the
External Speaker switch is the familiar Noise Blanker NB switch. One more to
the right is a feature labeled AMSIL for AM Silencer. This was an A.R.F.
Products exclusive that would mute any AM or carrier based signal when the
set was operated in the SSB Mode. It is impressive to hear it eliminate all
hetrodyne beeps boops and Billy-Bobs on SSB so only a Sideband-Based signal
would pass. Can you imagine a Sideband Squelch control that actually worked
This feature made this a reality. The switch to the right of this feature
allowed the SWR to be monitored and was used in conjunction with the SWR RF
Signal Strength meter. The other meter allowed Monitoring the percentage
Modulation and Calibrating the SWR forward level.

In the center of the rig is a status window that has indicators for Transmit
High SWR AMSIL and Receive. Below that is a Dimmer control for illumination
level and a CALibrate control for setting the SWR and Modulation percentage
reference level. To the right of that is the frequency display which displays
the Channel number. It also functions as a digital clock.

Excellent condition with a complete set of manuals included.
