The AR8600MkII replaces the original AR8600 with availability hopefully from late June. Price has yet to be confirmed but hopefully no considerable change if any from the previous version.
The AR8600 has been enhanced in several areas with the new AR8600 MkII offering increased upper frequency range of 3.0GHz (3000MHz) whilst lower band sensitivity has been increased (now officially covering to 100kHz) with an enhancement to short wave performance by the addition of further bandpass filters and selection of alternative I.F. filters. Mini-Circuits RMS1 / RMS2 mixers have been employed with active SPM aerial switching devices (not diode-switching) abundantly employed throughout the signal path.
Normal operation of the AR8600 MKII is largely unaffected, just a few operational changes need be noted.
Mention has also been made of the AR86000 MkII having a TV output although specifics of this are not yet known especially with regard NTSC/PAl compatability.
