The RX-SPECIAL synthesized receiver covers any continuous 4MHz frequency spread between 148.000 MHz and 174.000 MHz. The system includes a folding Yagi antenna which mounts directly to the receiver. The receiver is nicely balanced on the antenna for comfortable, one handed operation.

The RX-SPECIAL is extremely sensitive to hear the weakest telemetry signals, it also employs very effective filters to eliminate unwanted interference sources. The synthesized design provides excellent temperature stability with no drift in frequency settings. A four step attenuator allows full receiver sensitivity for longest range or reduced sensitivity for extremely close-in tracking to a few inches. It employs a large, full range, speaker for rich sounding loud audio. A very sensitive signal strength meter also doubles to let you know when the battery needs replacing. A rugged, light weight, aluminum case is standard as well as a 3.5 mm mono headphone jack. A standard circ., 5.5mm x 2.1mm, center positive, power jack allows the RX-SPECIAL to be powered from an external 9-14VDC source. Select range of 4.000 MHz from  148.000 MHz to 174.000 MHz.
