The Lowe HF-225 follows on the success of the Lowe HF-125, and has been designed specifically to fulfil the requirements of the dedicated shortwave listener or DX enthusiast. Its ability to perform on a crowded band with strong adjacent stations is one of its major strengths. The HF-225 is easy to use with controls being simple and sensible. Continuous coverage from 30 kHz to 30 MHz is provided in AM, USB, LSB and CW modes. The optional D-225 adds FM narrow mode and synchronous AM. Unlike other receivers the HF-225 comes complete with a comprehensive range of bandwidths: 2.2 kHz for SSB (and AM ECSS), 4, 7 and 10 kHz for AM reception. A 200 Hz audio filter is included for the CW listener. Tuning is accomplished through the use of 1 MHz UP/DOWN buttons and a multi-speed main tuning knob with recessed finger hole. Direct frequency entry is available with the optional KPAD-1 keypad controller. Thirty memories store your favorite stations. Antenna jacks are provided for either a PL-259 (50 ohm) or single wire (600 ohm). Jacks are provided for headphones, record out, speaker, 12V DC power and optional keypad. The Lowe HF-225 provides elegant simplicity without sacrificing performance.
The Lowe HF-225E is an enhanced version of the HF-225.
