In 1989 I bought the AR 900 handheld and in 1984 I bought the AR2001. I never liked the "sloppy" squelch action of them. So I never bought another AOR product after that.
I did build an external keypad with real switch type buttons for the AR2001. Made using that radio much easier.
The Comm Sq guys where I was stationed were
amazed that I had a HH rx (the AR900) that could hear their
TACAN identing and carrier growling at 1gHz. They wanted to buy
it and I told them to get a gvmt contract to buy a few as
essential test/repair equipment. LoL
