(NEWEST MODEL - GEN 3 )
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.
THE NEW GP-5 SSB IS GREATLY IMPROVED OVER THE LEGENDARY GP-4L & GP-5 DSP. THIS RADIO HAS BEEN COMPLETELY REDESIGNED BY OUR ENGINEERS AND THE FACTORY TO BE AN IMPORTANT PART OF BOTH YOUR SURVIVAL KIT AND YOUR FUN KIT. THE PERFORMANCE OF THIS RADIO SURPASSES RADIOS COSTING 2-3 TIMES MORE.

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

I bought this as an aid in the event a disaster of any type occurred and what do you know, Dorian appeared. Although the storm turned north before impacting my area too badly, I had not expected to use this radio for a long long time. I did not NEED to use this, but I opened it up, powered it up and am very happy to say ALL functions functioned properly. I have no qualms about recommending this radio and kinda look forward to actually needing to use it someday, but not today!
The usual great radio, plus a very good carrying case. I bought this to have a second radio (two is one, one is none!) but really for the carrying case. Strongly recommended.
I bought the GP-5 after reading and watching reviews. Camping in Wyoming I received 780 WBBM Chicago with a strong signal and many other MW stations. Also received many shortwave stations and amateurs. I am quite happy and amazed with the performance. I have been SWL'ing for 50 years and have dozens of radios. The GP-5 is now my go-to for camping and road trips. My only real complaint is it needs a direct input keypad. Get one, you will love it!
This is one bad ass radio. The only drawback is that it does not offer a numeric keypad for frequency input. I will buy another for storage.
I’ve had a few of the GP-5 radios and a couple of different soft cases (now given to friends). The Mil Spec Case in this package is why I bought it and to me, very much worth the higher price. The GP-5 is well made but the standard soft case does not provide the protection I want or carry Spare Batteries and the Ferrite Antenna. This case is much much tougher and also has the metal belt clip I was after. The radio is identical to the normal GP-5 but the MIL version comes double sealed - ideal for long term storage in a bug out kit or cache. It clips onto MOLLE Webbing and is for my purposes a great improvement. Some owners have seen the batteries flattened in a few weeks when installed but the radio switched off. I think the clock/alarm/temperature functions must still draw some power. If you store the radio unused for any period either remove the batteries or use a small piece of flat plastic to isolate a battery connection to a contact. The station memories do not need the battery connected and resetting time on the clock only takes a few seconds after you learn the procedure. If you want the rugged case I would suggest buying this Mil kit while it’s available.
