This portable AM/FM stereo short wave receiver from Sangean gets a wide range of radio frequencies. With a built-in AM/FM/SW antenna and PLL Synthesized digital tuning technology, this portable radio provides superb signal reception indoors and outdoors.
This exceptionally compact device packs several value-added features into a small cabinet, including an alarm clock with radio and buzzer timers, real and dual time display and adjustable sleep timer.
The display is back-lit, so it will be readable in any light. If you run out of power, just replace the 4 AA batteries, and your listening pleasure can continue anywhere!

This review is from: Sangean AM/FM Stereo/SW Radio ATS 505
Pros: Good size, nice pouch for the unit when not in use. Came with the AC adapter, a real-in SW antenna, (like a fishing rod,) and bud type stereo head phones. More than I expected. For what I paid for it, this is a nice unit. I'm looking to replace a 20 year old Panasonic AM-FM-SW receiver with a dirty band selector.
Cons: I miss a signal strength meter. Auto-scan stays within a given "Broadcast" band, repeating itself instead of sweeping the entire SW band. Scans too fast, you have to push the manual tuning wheel to get a better fine-tune on the frequencies. It will be better once I get used to it.
Other Thoughts: It picks up WWV. I'm a bit surprised how little their is on the Short Wave frequencies now days. It's been a few years since I was into listening the bands. I wonder if I can wrap this up in some aluminum foil and have it survive an EMP attack for emergency use? Sangean has a better optioned out unit but NewEgg doesn't offer it. I'd like to get one of those, (With a signal strength monitor, and a few more goodies.) Put this one in the food-water back-pack for emergencies. HELLO NewEgg.
