A week or so ago, I came across this receiver online and decided I had to have one! It’s similar to older models by other manufacturers that date back a few years now. Checking the technical specifications, I really liked what I saw in that aspect of the radio too. This receiver covers the entire Shortwave Radio band or the HF frequencies.
It also receives the Air Band, the AM radio frequencies that the commercial aircraft use which is very nice in a receiver of this quality. And of course, it also receives the FM and AM broadcast bands as well. So, this receiver covers a large portion of the radio spectrum and does it very well!
I unpacked the unit, powered it up, and got to work testing the controls, receiver sensitivity, and audio quality which is phenomenal for a receiver like this, very impressive. I still need to spend more time with the receiver later this evening and tonight after the sun sets, and the HF (Shortwave) and Medium Wave (AM Radio) bands come alive.
I will write more on this sweet new radio in the future. It’s still true you know, the difference between men and boys is the price of their toys! I don’t wanna grow up, I’m a ‘Toys R Us’ kid! Do you remember that silly jingle and store?
