It's probably the best portable radio ever made?
THE GOOD: This is the radio to buy, if you are looking for a compact yet powerful portable radio receiver that doesn't require you to hook it up to a gigantic beam antenna, in order to get optimum reception? The sensitivity of this machine is AWESOME, across most of the bands, so you'll be picking up stations from all over the world, in no time whatsoever, on just the telescopic whip, or the supplied external wire antenna, if you live in a good reception area? THE BAD: Major distortion is encountered when using the radio on it's lowest sensitivity setting, which i find rather odd, and the whip antenna isn't the sturdiest of antennas. AND THE UGLY! The synchronous detector is a write off!
Probably the world's best portable?
This little radio is an absolute gem! Listen to the world, in the comfort of your armchair, without having to hook up your cubicle quad or stacked array! Pull out the weak signals, with just the telescopic whip, or the supplied wire reel antenna? because thiis machine is awesome! and it doesn't stop there, because it even covers v.h.f. which your communications receiver doesn't even have! There are a few quirks though, including major distortion, with the sensitivity switch on its LOWEST setting, which i find very odd, but overall it offers unbeatable value, especially at this price point!
