USED Discovery TX-500 – Military Style Portable Transceiver - (Boxed some internal packing missing)

LAB 599 Discovery TX-500 – Military Style Portable Transceiver - Made in UAE

Tailored for adventure, for extremes, for using in places unattainable before, with no sacrifice of performance or features.

The Lab599 Discovery covers 160-6 meters, all modes, with a maximum power output of 10 W. It comes with true desktop-radio features, like auto-notch, noise reduction, and RX/TX EQ.

The transceiver has a built-in fast Panadaptor, for easier search for new contacts and evaluation of band conditions wherever you are, at any time.

Built-in Panadaptor - The transceiver features a built-in high-performance Panadaptor, for better search for new contacts and evaluation of band conditions — wherever you are, at any time. In receive mode, current drain can be as low as 100 mA — a unique feature on the market. Transmit efficiency is also excellent, with improved battery life.

Unique form-factor - The Lab599 Discovery unique form-factor allow operate from anywhere. The transceiver is only 30 mm thick, including knobs, weighing only 0.55 kg. Fold out the kickstands at the rear for use on a desktop or picnic table.

11 Discrete RF Bandpass Filters - Discovery TX-500 has 11 discrete RF bandpass filters. The RF signal is only passed through one of the band-pass filters — any out-of-range signals are rejected.

Aluminium Alloy Body - The transceiver's body is made of durable aluminium by the method of precision milling, to ensure a unique shock protection and provide good heat removal from the output part of the transmitter.

Well Shielded Inner Units - To achieve high sensitivity of the transceiver, separate functional units are isolated from mutual influence and external interference by partitioning walls installed in the device case.

Dust and Liquid Protection - Thanks to the liquid-protected housing and the absence of through-holes, spatter resistant plugs, valcoders with sealing rings, the transceiver will work reliably in extreme conditions, giving you real pleasure from traveling. The case is also covered with a layer of black anodizing substance, to maintain an attractive appearance for a long time, even during extreme operation.
