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.

For the size and price it is a great unit.The plug in antenna on MW works good looks to be about 306 uH, so if you want to use a box loop antenna wind it 306uh.Ran test using a Yeasu FT-2000 and theGP-5 ssb with real antennas.IT did very well overall .Jest take the time to learn how to tune and use all it has to offer.N6KIT
I am impressed with the size, style and performance of this radio. The surprise is the radio base. A machined hockey puck. It looks and works great with the radio on my side table. The down side is the cat likes the hockey puck as a cat toy. I might have to get another puck.
I'm learning the controls. Reception is amazing for the package and price. I got the hockey puck for the radio base. I think it works great. My cat thinks it's his cat toy.
This little radio is barely bigger then then the average candy bar but delivers features you just can't find on a radio this size otherwise like single side band with full shortwave bands coverage.
