Description :

The Xiegu X5105 is an ultra-portable multi-mode HF transceiver that delivers an wide range of operating features. It comes with a 3.6'' high-visibility LCD that displays a wide range of information covering virtually every aspect of the radio's operation. The transmitter covers 160 through 6 meters bands with power output adjustable from 0.5 to 5 Watts. Transmit and receive modes include USB/LSB, CW, FM, AM plus digital inputs. You also get a built-in SWR bridge plus a effective Automatic Antenna Tuner (ATU) that allow you to operate almost anywhere using a range of portable and fixed antenna systems. The X5105 receiver is general coverage, tuning from 0.5 MHz, the AM broadcast band, through 54 MHz. VFO tuning is velvet-smooth with 1-Hz resolution, and DX splits are easy using the VFO A/B mode and receive incremental tuning (RIT). More, built-in preamplifier/attenuator, pulse-type Noise Blanker (NB), adjustable Digital Noise Reduction (DNR), Notch Filter, variable AGC-Rate, and adjustable-width passband filters. For CW operators there is a Keyer complete with memory channels and CW-trainer. For voice modes, you get a built-in speech compression processor plus a multi-function key-pad microphone that places many of the radio's operating features right at your fingertips. Also, with its 3800mA/h on-board battery pack you get up to 6 to 8 hours of energy-independent portable operation between charges.

Other features :

  • Low-profile controls, heat sink, and desktop stand all built-in.
  • Built-in DSP, noise blanker, and notch filter to suppress interference.
  • 1° IF signal output for spectrum analyzer.
  • Selectable IF bandwidth, 500Hz CW / 2.4kHz SSB / 6kHz AM.
  • Rx scan-feature display band activity with 5 width settings available from 100 kHz to 500 kHz.
  • Tx scan-feature display plots antenna SWR.
  • Audio output with high-pass (adjustment range is 100 to 1000 Hz) and low-pass (adjustment range is 500 Hz to 3600 Hz) filter.
  • Data Modem, this function allows you to copy PSK-31 signals (with CAR and AFC tracking) on the display without using an external modem or computer.
