  • Summary: when I first bought this I didn't know much about shortwave I did some research before purchasing it, but since I've had it I haven't seen another Shortwave Portable that has as many bands, and none with Long Wave that do not cost 3 to 4 times the amount of this radio. When it comes to shortwave it works very well and it starts at 4.65MHz and ends at 22.28MHz most other portable shortwave radio's that I've seen start with the SW2 of this Radio and drops off with SW8 at a...

Did not work

Rebecca P. Thomson "waterrates", Amazon

  • Summary: It was not a big investment, but I did need one that actually worked. This one did not come alive at all. Not a peep. I intended to return it, but the web site is so convoluted I could not figure out how to contact the seller. Ebay sure beats amazon in this manner.

What a piece of crap !

14 July 2013
  • Summary: People stay away from that product , it is just a pile of plastic and metal and worthless ! 1. You cannot see the display because it has no light behind it or it doesnt work , so you have to listen to the stations to figur out if it is the one you are looking for if you can pick up a station ! 2. They sell a 12 band radio but it is only a 11 band radion , it says every where 12 but on the radio it says 11 and it is a 11band radio ! So wrong advertising !

It's Alright...

J. Nieporte, Amazon
3 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought two of these from SoulGood via Amazon Marketplace in Used - Very Good condition. The cost was $10.13 each, as opposed to the "new" price of $13 The Used - Very Good was a broken tab on the battery door of one, and some small scratches on the corner of the other. Nothing to worry about. The Coby CB12 measures 6" long, 3-1/4" tall, and 1-3/8" thick. It's a tad big for a shirt pocket, but fits a BDU or jacket pocket.
