Aor Ar3000a Control Software

From The RadioReference Wiki

Post by Nigel Baskerville Hi, anyone know of any software for the PC to control the AOR AR3000A scanner? Thanks in advance Nigel. Aor Ar3000a Control Software. AOR AR-3000A (AOR3000) To add a discriminator output to an AOR AR-3000 (AOR3000), the scanner has to be disassembled a bit, as the discriminator IC is on the bottom side of the IF PCB. You find this print if you open the bottom half of the housing by removing the 4 screws at the bottom and on the rear.

Handheld Amateur VHF/UHF Scanner / receiver
Police Scanner / Communication Receiver

This radio is a wide range AM and FM mode receiver. It is a discontinued model. There are not a lot of these radios out there, and very little information is available. The manufacturer offers no information on their web site for this model. It is a capable model that covers a wide range of frequencies.

HowTo: Basic Operation

When turned on, scanner goes immediately to scan.

  • To stop scanning, press the MANUAL button (3rd row 1st button)
  • To go directly to a channel press the letter of the bank (bottom row A - E) and type the desired channel number (a number between 1 and 20). Begin single digit channels with preceding zero.
  • You can step forward though channels by pressing the MANUAL button.

Program a frequency into scanner

When turned on, scanner goes immediately to scan. Press the MANUAL button to stop scanning.

  • Press MANUAL
  • Navigate to the memory bank and channel number to be programmed
  • Enter the frequency and select AM/FM or verify
  • Press the ENT button (4th row last button) to commit frequency to that memory bank channel

Clear all channels from memory

This would be akin to a reset.

Connect headphone or ext speaker

Connection on top is for a sub-mini 2.5mm 3/32' TS phono plug. The jack is labeled simply 'EAR.' An adapter to go from the tiny 3/32' plug to a more modern 1/8' or 1.4' plug will make this useful. See a discussion on phono plug sizes here: Phono Plug Sizes. This scanner uses a mono TS plug.

User Manual from OCR

Manual: Quick Start

NOTE: This is extracted from the UK version of the owner manual. The UK version advises scanning cellular range which is neither legal nor useful in the United States. The U.S. version will not allow cellular phone frequency entry.

For those, and that is the vast majority of us, who want to listen to something immediately and read the Instruction Manual later, please carry out the following steps:

  1. Fit the thinner of the two aerials (push on and turn).
  2. Turn squelch (SQ) control fully counterclockwise.
  3. Turn volume (VOL) control clockwise to a comfortable listening level.
  4. Turn squelch clockwise until the background noise stops.
  5. Press the following keypad buttons in order - Search Progm If the letters FM show in the middle right hand edge of the display, move to the next step, but if AM shows press AMFM until FM shows.

Next step - press 9, 3, 6, ENT, PRY LUUL, 9, 4, 0, ENT, and then press LOCKOUT/INC until 12.5 shows at the top ofthe display slightly right of centre, ENT, SEARCH (NOT search progm). The AR900UK should, if the battery is notflat, start searching part of the Cellular telephone band and you should hear signals. If the search stops on a signal whichis unintelligible, pressing SEARCH (not search progm) will restart the search. If the AR900UK does not seem to beworking properly, the battery may be flat - charging instructions follow a bit further on, but be absolutely sure youhave carried out the above instructions to the letter before giving up in despair.

The AR-900UK is manufactured by A.O.R. Limited'of Japan whose products, going back a long time, havegained a world-wide reputation for both performance andreliability second to none. It has been carefully engineeredand manufactured to a rigid specification capable of givingsatisfactory and dependable Operation for many years.

After unpacking, it is as well to keep the packingmaterial in case it should ever be needed for remoteoperation, maintenance or service, and check that it issupplied with the following accessories:

1 - AC Adaptor/Charger. Input 24oVAC 5oHz 5W. Output 6VDC ZOOmA.

It will be necessary to attach a mains plug to this unit suitable for fitting into a standard domestic power socket.

2 - Flexible helical whip aerials, one slightly thicker than the other.

1 - Instruction Manual.

Before using the charger for the first time werecommend that the battery be fully discharged by switchingon the dial light. When this goes out or the “bat low”warning appears on the display, switch it off, plug one endof the charger into the mains, the other end into theAR9ooUK charger socket marked “CHG DC6V”, andcharge for 8-10 hours. The reason for this procedure is that

Nickel Cadmium (NiCad) batteries may acquire what hasbeen described as a “memory” which subsequently gives riseto difficulty in charging them fully. This fulldischarge/charge cycle at the outset minimises this problemand ensures that optimum battery usage is achieved. Notethat during the initial discharge you can use the ARQOOUICbut it will, in all probability soon start to die on you as thebattery gets flatter and flatter. The same thing applies to theinitial charge - it will take several minutes to start coming tolife again, but after that there is no reason why you should notuse it, but I would be inclined to leave the dial light 017'. Oneother thing to remember - if you use the AR9ooUK duringthe charging cycle, then the charging time should beincreased to compensate. As overcharging: is not undulyharmful it is not necessary to set the alarm for 3 am. toswitch the charger off - up to 16 hours once in a while willnot hurt. Repeating this rapid discharge/full charge cyclethree or four times is not a bad idea and results in theNiCads reaching their full capacity of 7 to 9 hours normalusage. Subsequently, an overnight charge or a charge whileyou are at work when the low battery (Bat-Low) warningappears on the display is all that is necessary. As for thetotal life of the NiCads - hard to say o depends not only onusage but many other factors, but I would be a bitdisappointed if they only lasted a year and delighted if theylasted four. Fortunately they do not cost the earth toreplace.

Manual: Operating modes

note: OCR from original owner manual UK version. May contain OCR related character errors.

The AR900UK can be used in three different ways.In the MANUAL mode, any frequency within the tuningrange may be entered into any of the 100 memory channels(Ao1 to E20) and,recalled by entering the appropriatechannel number. Additionally, repeated pressing ofMANUAL goes through the memories sequentially, tuningto the different frequencies in them. The second mode of operation is the SCAN facility whereby up to 100frequencies are manually put in the memories and thenrapidly scanned. Should there be a signal present, theAR9ooUK will stop scanning to permit the signal to beheard. The 100 memories are in 5 (A,B,C,D,and E) banksof 20 and any bank or combination of banks may bescanned. One popular method of use is to have local airfieldand airways frequencies in one bank, Radio Amateurs inanother, Private Mobile Radio in a third, cellular car'phones in a fourth and so on, scanning the bank. or banksof current interest. Should interest in one or morefrequencies temporarily wane, that frequency or frequenciesmay be temporarily locked out by pressing theLOCKOUT/INC key. Pressing a second time brings thefrequency back. into the scan. The SCAN operationpresupposes that the user knows firstly what frequencies toput in the memories and secondly whether the transmissionis AM or FM. There are several books which list variousfrequencies and your Dealer will be happy to advise. As towhether a transmission is AM or FM, a good general rule isthat all airband, civil and military are AM, anything else isFM, but if in doubt, trying both will determine which iscorrect. For the beginner who has little or no idea of whatfrequencies are in general use in his area, the third mode ofoperation comes into its own. This is the search mode, andin this mode the AR9ooUK will scan between twoprogrammable limits, stopping wherever there is a signal.Anexample of this mode of operation was given at the start ofthis manual. A good starting point is to consult the “BandPlan” listed further on and decide what you would like tolisten to. Take a small portion of the band and search thatportion noting any interesting frequencies or putting themdirectly into a memory bank by use of the HOLD facilitydescribed later. Having exhausted the possibilities of thatparticular portion, repeat over the next portion, and so on,not attempting to search more than a'1MHz portion at atime, otherwise there is a strong possibility that sometransmissions will be missed. After 20 frequencies have beenentered into a memory bank, it will, of course, be necessaryto start a fresh bank.

Firstly a description of the various switches and keys.


  • VOLUME Controls the volume and is also the Oil/off


  • SQUELCH Mutes the background noise, which,

particularly in the FM mode, tends to be mostobjectionable. Note that in order for theAR9ooUK to scan or search, it is essential touse the squelch control. The best position forthis control is when the noise is just, but only just, . muted, otherwise sensitivity suffersslightly.

  • HOLD operates in both the scan and search mode to

hold the frequency of a received signal foraboutWS seconds after the transmission hasended; The hold facility operates in the searchmode only and holds the signal frequency aslong as desired. This gives the user a chance to make a note of the frequency or put it directlyinto one of the memories simply by pressingENT followed by the memory location (e.g.

Co9). Searching resumes on pressingSEARCH.

ENT Enters a frequency into the memory frommanual, scan, or search programme modes.

A - E Selects from one to five memory banks.

DISPLAY In addition to the frequency, the display showsthe memory bank or banks in use (A - E), thesearch increment (5,10,12.5 or ZSkHz), mode(manual MAN, scan SCAN, search SRCH orsearch programme PROG), delay (DLY) 01'hold (HLD), priority (PRY),Direct access(DIR-ACC), AM or FM mode, lockout of ascan channel (L/O), low battery indicator(Bat-low), memory bank and channel number.


SEARCH To look for active frequencies within a chosen

MODE. range press SEARCH PROGM, one of theletters A - E, AMFM to select mode (UsuallyFM outside the Airband). the lower limitfrequency may now be entered (the decimalpoint may be ignored) followed by pressing theENT key. To enter the upper limit, press thePRY LL/UL key followed by the frequency andthen ENT. The search increment may now beselected by pressing LOCKOUT/IN C followedby ENT then press SEARCH. The AR900 willstart searching the selected frequency range.Note that recommended search increments are incorporated in the Band Plan and that it iswise to limit the search to about IMHz to avoidmissing anything. Also Note the use of the holdfacility - an active frequency may be held andentered into a memory simply by pressing ENTand then a memory channel (e.g. DIZ) pressingSEARCH to restart. 77w only problem is that itwill replace anything that is already in D12which is then lost, so it is essential to keep trackof what memories are used. Also Note the useof the red 4 and 7 keys described above. Theonly other point to remember is always to enterthe upper and lower limit frequencies by pressing

O . ENT even if they are already displayed.SCAN Assuming that you have found a fewMODE. frequencies or know frequencies which youwould like to scan, press MANUAL; selectbank and channel by ENT, A,B,C,D, or E,(note that DIR ACC appears on the displaybecause this is how channels are directlyaccessed in the manual mode) followed by anumber 01 - 20. The frequency displayed isthat which is already in the memory, so besure it is no longer needed because it will belost when a new frequency is entered. If it isneeded, simply re-enter a different channelnumber. If the AR9OOUK is new, thefrequencies entered are merely those used forour pre - sales check and are of nosignificance. Enter the desired frequency bythe numeric keys (the decimal point and final 0or 00 may be ignored), select AM or FM(Airband AM) and press ENT. Repeat thisprOcess for other channels. Scanning is started(or restarted) by pressing SCAN. Whilstscanning, banks may be temporarily added ordeleted by one or more of the letter keys AB. These act as an on/off switch - press onceto switch from on to off, or vice versa, andagain-to reverse the process. Channels not ofcurrent interest may be locked out by the useof LOCKOUT/INC, and the lockout removedby accessing the channel in the manual modeand again pressing the LOCKOUT/INC key.The DELAY HOLD key, if pressed willactivate the delay of about 6 seconds, a secondpress removing it. For correct operation of SCAN and SEARCH modes, Wshoulialmaysbesct.The scan may be stopped by pressingMANUAL, and stepping through the memorychannels achieved by repeatedly pressingMANUAL. Ao1 is the priority channel and isswitched in or out by the PRY LL/UL key.Remember that the AR9ooUK must besquelched before it will scan but that everysynthesized receiver has certain “birdies”which cannot be silenced by the squelchcontrol, and it may be necessary to restart thescan by pressing the SCAN key.

MANUAL Virtually every aspect of this mode has already

MODE. been covered, so nothing can be added. Thiscompletes the operating of the AR9ooUK, butthe following one or two notes may be ofinterest.


note: OCR from original owner manual UK version. May contain OCR related character errors.

There are two aerials supplied, the thinner moresuitable for frequencies above 4ooMHz and the thicker forbelow this. If you are scanning a mixture of frequencies, it isa question of trying both aerials to see which performs best.Slightly greater range will result by using an extending whipaerial, trying it at different lengths, but with the snag that itis more prone to damage both itself and anyone close-by.Although connection of an outside aerial system such as adiscone or ground plane on the house roof will oftenproduce better signal strengths, such aerials will generallyproduce bloeking or overloading effects on the AR9ooUK,which is designed to operate with the aerials supplied. YourDealer will be able to advise and supply suitable aerials, orreading any of the books on scanners (our own littlepamphlet makes sound sense) will aid your understanding ofthe factors involved. Some form of roof aerial is to berecommended when using the AR9ooUK in the car - if youhave a favourite band, an aerial for that band is a good ideaand again your Dealer can advise.
