ABOUT THE RIGPIX DATABASE

The initiative to build the database for RigPix was taken when I got fed up with the problem of keeping track of the vast number of radios manufactured. The aim is to provide pictures and basic specifications. I will try to keep the database updated as far as possible (a never-ending task, hehe!).

PLEASE NOTE that RigPix is NOT a commercial radio gear dealer or repair shop. It's only a database with pictures and information concerning radio communication gear.

Furthermore, I'm doing this on my spare time, so occasionally, I may not have the time to update as often as I would like to, but I will always try to whenever possible.

All indicated dates are ISO-compliant: YYYY-MM-DD.

WHAT YOU WON'T FIND: Common household radios for casual listening to local AM/FM broadcasts.
WHAT YOU WILL FIND: Ham-gear, communication receivers, scanners, CB and "Freeband" radios plus professional, military and various license-free radios and more.

Preferred screen resolution is 1024 x 768 with at least High Color (16 bit) depth. Otherwise, some layout oddities may occur. However, a slow transition is on the way towards 1280 x 1024 pixels.

On the main page, the numbers within parentheses indicate the number of items in each area.

The pictures used are mostly scanned from ad's, product sheets and manuals. Some are produced by yours truly and some are sent to me by fellow radio nuts from all over the world. The quality is ranging from crisp, clear color to grainy, lousy barely-see-what-it-is fifth generation Xerox copy, but as Kajsa Warg once said; "One taketh what one haveth".
