Mizuho FRX-2001 For Sale
The Mizuho FRX-2001 fox hunting receiver is a commercially made dedicated tool for use in multiple radio fox hunting competitions and for tracking down stuck transmitters or illegal pirates on 2 meters.
The Model FRX-2001 features a synthesized receiver built into the boom of a two-element HB9CV phased array beam, with selectable AM and FM detection.
The spring-wire phased array is smaller than an equivalent yagi, making it excellent for use in the brush.
An audio-pitch signal strength circuit feeds one channel of stereo headphones and receiver audio is presented in the other channel. An internal switch selects AM or FM demodulation.
The FRX-2001 tunes 144-148 MHz. Digital thumb dials on the side of the unit tune in 10 KHz steps over a 2 MHz range. Two internal slide switches select 144, 145, 146 or 147 MHz.
The dual conversion receiver uses a 10.7 MHz first IF and a 455 KHz second IF with filtering.
Power is provided by a 9 volt battery pack using 6 AA cells. Rechargeable NiMH or NiCd batteries work great.
This unit was purchased new in Japan and is in perfect condition in its original packaging. A rare find!
