Repeat purchase on a solid receiver

  • Summary: I had my first ATS-505P about 10 years ago. Generally used for normal AM/FM reception, but sometimes went into the Amateur bands (I'm an inactive ham, have held a license for 43 years), so sometimes I'd go on the amateur bands just to see what I could pick up.

  • Summary: Since SW radio is almost dead, at least here in Canada, I use it mostly for local AM and FM....AM reception is crappy and it picks up a lot of noise...FM reception is good, SW reception is crappy but I live in downtown Montreal, surrounded by buildings and sources of noise.

A little disappointed

  • Summary: The ATS-505P radio is great for AM and FM. I bought it through Amazon. However, I tried to get shortwave signals while I was camping at 8000 feet in the California Sierras and did not receive much. It may have not been the radio's fault.

Perfect radio with a useless tool.

  • Summary: The radio works perfect. Good sound, easy to use. The transformator for wired electricity does not fit in this country (Netherlands) so is useless. So batteries is the only option.

  • Summary: I purchased this for a friend who had lost his old Grundig unit. He plays with it when he has time. He's happy with the AM/FM reception, but SW is still questionable.

  • Summary: The radio itself works well. The reason for only three stars is the charger does not put out 6V only 4.9V. The battery low icon shows as soon as the charger is plugged in.
