World's best digital shortwave general purpose, 4 -band shortwave receiver ( We think so... )
Amazing for emergency kits. It also makes an excellent monitor for when you're transmitting and tuning a HAM rig!
The new GP-5 SSB radio is made based on a continued request for an excellent quality general purpose information radio. These radios are re-modified for a specific client request with the help of Edison Fong PHD. We have a few left over to offer to our consumer preppers. Remember, always have a radio and be prepared, we are living in changing times.
CountyComm is pleased to announce the GP-5/SSB radio with excellent HF communications monitoring in a unique handheld form factor and at a great price. The radio covers medium wave 520-1710 kHz shortwave 2300-30000 kHz and the FM band. Unlike most radios in this price category, the GP-5/SSB provides LSB and USB single sideband reception. It has a very unique Easy Tuning Mode (ETM). ETM does more the usual ATS. It scans all frequencies without taking up the memory spaces. So you get quick access to all local stations. Great for the traveler. There are also 450 regular memories (100 AM, 100 FM and 250 shortwave) available for tuning into your favorite stations. Another unique feature of the radio is its removable high sensitivity external AM ferrite antenna. This directional antenna clearly enhances AM band reception. The CountyComm GP-5/SSB even employs DSP (Digital Signal Processing) technology, improving clarity and tone quality. There is even an adjustable sleep timer.
Modes : AM, FM, SW, USB, LSB
Sterile Fiberboard Packaging Per Contract Requirements
Limited Supply From Surplus Contract
Warning: Some suppliers are offering aftermarket large ferrite bar antennas for our GP-5 Radios. The weight of the aftermarket antenna causes the AM Bar Antenna Input connector to break internally, losing AM reception. This will void your warranty.

Single screw to replace the antenna.
It's always a good idea to have a backup antenna.

I hadn't expected a lot out of a receiver this inexpensive and was surprised at how well it receives. As a ham radio operator I wanted it to monitor my own transmissions not thinking it'd pick up much otherwise. With just the pull out antenna it receives SSB signals on both 80 and 20 meters very well and I'm sure it will on the other bands as well. The only drawback so far, and I haven't dug into it but it may, is that it's very slow tuning across the bands since I haven't found a way to tune in bigger steps. Still it's well worth the money. Oh and another surprise was that it has a built in thermometer. I recommend this to anyone that wants a neat little radio.
When I first got the radio I was not sure what to think. I started to use it and become familiar with the radio’s functions and I quickly discovered it is a very easy radio to use.
It is a very sensitive radio and the whip antenna on SW works beautifully. SSB is a wonderful feature to have. It just adds more usefulness to the radio.
The Organic Gray color is great and I love the green scroll wheel and green tip antenna. It really sets it apart from the Tecsun PL-365.
The size of the radio is smaller than I imagined but it is easy to hold and place in a pocket. The size of the radio is perfect.
It looks like it will be a great travel radio. I look forward to using it on my next trip.
Waiting for return information. Buttons are to small, I have poor eye sight and not able to read button description, not able to receive AM.
