5 out of 5 eggsBeyond Excellent

Pros: FM performance. RDS performance. Long battery life. No noise with external charger. Variable RF Gain Control instead of fixed switch. External antenna performance excellent. SSB tuning and audio quality exceptional. Very nice and large display. Easy to operate.

Cons: Some loss of sensitivity on SW on the whip antenna; wide AM bandwidth needs to be wider.

Other Thoughts: As good as it gets in a portable. Only 2 negatives, fairly easily fixed. The wide AM bandwidth is specified at 6 KHz, but sounds like 4 KHz. Radiolabs has a Clearmod modification where they replace the wide filter with a 7 KHz filter. Sounds much better. Some loss of sensitivity on the whip for SW, but can be overcome with a long wire or external antenna. If you must use the whip, there is a Balun modification for $2.00 in the Yahoo Group for the 909X which dramatically improves the whip sensitivity on SW.

Otherwise a perfect portable. Stunning FM with an excellent RDS system. The best FM tuner I have ever heard. The audio from the speaker is also 1st class. SSB performance is equally impressive with easy to tune 40 KHz steps and very good audio quality. This portable makes a very good quasi-desktop if you connect the AC adapter and an external antenna. The continuously variable RF gain control is made for this application and the radio excels in SW DX in this circumstance. Also an excellent AM BCB DX machine with the ferrite bar antenna as long as the case. This radio compares favorably with my Panasonic RF-2200 for AM DXing. The display is large, well lit, and can be kept on conrinuously with the AC adapter attached. It is very easy to read and is very good looking. Battery life is exceptional with either alkaline or NiCad.

This radio is much better than the Tecsun PL-880 which it has been compared to. While it does not have a sync detector, the ECCS performs superbly. I cannot recommend this radio highly enough, but I would opt for the Radiolabs Clearmod modification to increase the wide AM bandwidth.
