• Analogue tuner with a digital read out display
• Clock and Alarm function

A great little radio that's thin enough to fit in a shirt pocket, but powerful enough to receive stations from around the world. This radio will receive overseas broadcasts or the BBC world service when you travel abroad. Shortwave allows listening to stations from around the world, as a general guide, during the day, listen above 13 MHz and at night, listen below 13 MHz.


Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality and value in one package. I purchased this to replace an old Sony which had given good service. I was impressed by the size, modern design and performance which for it price represented very good value. Sensitivity and selectivity were impressive. On the downside a built in stand and backlight would have been useful. Initially I found the tuning very frustrating as when switching bands and retuning the original frequency is not remembered and must be retuned. As there are no memories it is something you learn to live with. I also found the tuning very sensitive especially on shortwave. A push button tuning system would have been easier but however it is only a budget radio! However its good points way out strip its bad.
