Racal RA-217

(0.0/5) Add a review / View all reviews

Desktop Shortwave receiver

The RA1217, and its table top brother the RA217, is virtually a solid state version of the RA117, the only electrical differences are in the reception of SSB signals. The set can resolve USB, LSB and AM using separate demodulators, and with the use of a BFO, CW can be resolved.
