Mike Devereux (Nevada) reports that AOR Japan is pleased to inform readers about a big step forward the company has achieved in the development of the AR-DV10 (Hand-held) Digital Receiver: AOR has created a new firmware which enables traffic channel decoding of Tetra trunking networks, as they have previously done with the AR-DV1 receiver, back in December 2018. AOR has already tested it successfully on live signals from Narita and Haneda airports. This BETA firmware 1904A is published on the AOR website (see URL). For the time being, it is in BETA state, as its only purpose is to test voice decoding of the traffic channels of Tetra trunking networks. The AR-DV10 wideband receiver is, therefore, the first hand-held receiver in the world that is able to tap into a Tetra network This is significant for listeners in Europe and Asia, where Tetra is used extensively. The development is of interest, for example, to airband enthusiasts, who can expand their hobby by listening to airport staff, but also for many commercial operators and governmental/law enforcement entities.
