2020.03.13 PRESS RELEASE (March 13, 2020): AOR Ltd. wins a bidding related to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics/Paralympics security!
2020.03.09 The French "Radio Club de Provins F6KOP" (located 100km east of Paris) is one of the 3 largest radio clubs in France. This radioclub which has nearly 140 members worldwide, went on a 12 days DXpedition to Palestine in order to promote radio-amateur traffic from Bethlehem in the West Bank with the call sign E44CC. During this event, more than 51,000 QSOs have been made on all HF bands, both in analog and digital modes. This world-renowned radio club was also received by the Minister of Telecommunications in Ramala. This adventure was made possible, thanks in part to the support of AOR-France (by PRO-SIC).
AOR Ltd. would like to raise your attention regarding an alarming increase of fake news regarding its products, circulating on radio related forums, social media groups such as on Facebook, and on fake AOR websites.
The most recent fake news claims that a new AR-DV10 "MK2" version would be released this year. That is totally false.
As a general rule and for the sake of common sense, we ask our dearest and honest customers never to trust rumours circulating on Internet. The only sources of information to be trusted regarding AOR products are and the websites of our network of official AOR distributors as listed on .

2020.01.16 Decode digital signals from space!
Did you know that our AR-DV1, AR-DV10, AR5700D receivers, or the ARD300 external decoder, can allow you to decode D-STAR repeater voice signals directly received from a amateur radio satellite downlink?
The following array of Cubesat satellites has been operational for a year or two:
D-STAR ONE iSat (Norad ID: 43879)
D-STAR ONE Sparrow (43881)
D-STAR ONE Lightsat (44393)
D-SATR ONE Exoconnect (44410)
They all use the same (voice) downlink frequency 435.525 MHz transmitted at 0.8-1.2W..
Real-time tracking information available at will allow you to find out when those D-STAR satellites will cross your skies. With that information and providing you have a tracking antenna, our receivers can bring you a new and unique experience.

2019.09.05 HAMFAIR 2019 report:
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to everyone who came to visit the AOR booth on August 31 and September 1, at the HAMFAIR exhibition in Tokyo.
AR-DV1 and AR-DV10 being now the number 1 selling digital receivers in Japan, this year we put the emphasis on AIRBAND & AIRPORT listening, under the topic "Make monitoring exciting again!".
As a matter of fact, TETRA's traffic channel decoding feature introduction on our AR-DV1 and AR-DV10 receivers, have caused quite a stir in the Japanese monitoring community, as never before it has been possible to listen to airport staff communications where Trunked TETRA is used. The airband enthusiasts can now not only listen to communications between aircrafts and the control tower in AM, but also to the exciting things happening inside the airport buildings and on the runway, via the TETRA mode!
As a local airport was only a couple of km away from the exhibition hall, visitors had the surprise to be able to listen to "live" T-TC signals at our booth, originating from that airport, just by using a telescopic antenna.
