The TR-7 is a solid-state, broadband, SSB/CW transceiver which covers all amateur bands from 160 through 10 meters. The TR-7 offers excellent sensitivity and selectivity, high dynamic range, digital frequency readout and full break-in CW operation.

A front panel switch allows the operator to Select an optional crystal filter independent of the MODE switch. A wide range of optional crystal filter band-widths are available, and installation of an accessory filter can be accomplished in minutes. The standard bandwidth is 2.3 kHz, and it is automatically selected in transmit to insure proper signal characteristics. A passive double balanced mixer is employed in the receiver front end. This stage is preceded by a low noise, high dynamic range bipolar rf amplifier to provide good strong signal performance and weak signal sensitivity.

The digital frequency readout of the TR-7 is derived from a true frequency counter to assure an accurate display of operating frequency. In addition, the tuning knob dial skirt is calibrated in 1 kHz increments to facilitate short frequency excursions.

The transmitter of the TR-7 features a rugged, solid-state power amplifier section which has been de-signed for continuous duty in the SSB and CW modes. For more demanding duty cycles, such as SSTV or RTTY, the Model FA-7 cooling fan is available. The transmitter section also features very low harmonic and spurious output, and is equipped with automatic high VSWR protection.

The VOX GAIN and DELAY controls are conveniently located on the front panel, and full break-in CW operation is obtained via a switch on the VOX DELAY control. VOX operation can be disabled by a front panel switch.

Other features include selectable AGC time constants, receiver incremental tuning (RIT), provision for an accessory noise blanker (NB-7), and T/R switching connections for an external linear amplifier and/or receiver.

The modular construction of the TR-7 reduces service time to a minimum. Each module is designed to perform a specific function, and this feature, combined with the open, accessible layout of the transceiver greatly simplifies any required alignment and troubleshooting. Liberal use is made of table connectors, simplifying module removal.
