I found the reception excellent for receiving SSB. That's what I principly purchased it for while I'm sailing in the Bahamas. I occasionally use the FM band receiver and it's fine. However, presetting channels for the SSB is very hard. I think they left out one step in the manual. After about a dozen or more tries I figured it out. About a month later I wanted to add a few more and could not do it again, so I still haven't added them! Maybe next winter one night in the Bahamas I'll figure it out again, mean while I have the 4 frequencies in there that I need and don't want to lose them! Quite a few boater's listened to it also and were very impressed. One purchased one right away. Another I talked to also had the same problem programming presets but managed to figure it out. However, they also couldn't remember how to do it again!, Also, watch out putting it in the case as the "power" button turns on easily and drains the batteries.
