DR-89 radio equipment consisted of three AR-88-F receivers in a cabinet rack along with monitoring unit and tone keyer unit that electronically selected the strongest signal of the three receivers suppressing two weaker signals. The receivers could also be operated individually.

Receiver dimensions (WHD) when out of rack - 480 х 265 х 440 mm.

To the contrast with AR-88-D, model AR-88-F had additional IF gain control for diversity reception and special wiring to provide for tone keyer unit operation. After WW II, DR-89 radio equipment got new designation OA-58/FRC.
