  • Summary: 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?
  • 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 dir...
  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Батареек хватает часов на 6 (2700 mah). Качественно сделано. Чехол только для перевозки(ручки нету, дырок для динамика и ручек тоже). Купил дополнительно антенну рулетку 7 метров, ловит хорошо. Настойки удобные в книжку не заглядывал. При замене аккумуляторов есть несколько секунд до сброса памяти.
  • Pros: Ловит все. Звук хороший, динамик не хрипит.
  • Cons: При подключении к сети не заряжает аккумуляторы. Подсветка быстро гаснет. Мало ячеек памяти. Вертикально стоит неустойчиво, приходится откидывать подставку сзади и класть на нее.
