Sangean is quality

March 9, 2014

Sangean makes quality products. I worked in hardware design for a large computer company and I recognize a well made circuit board when I see one. Sangean uses quality components. They're able to put allot of function in a small pkg. I hope they don't change. Some might rate this rate hard to use, but hey, it's allot more than a simple am/fm radio.

Nice Radio

February 17, 2014

This Radio is a BIG upgrade from the ATS-909 it replaced. The RDS locks in much faster and it has less Internal noise in the AM section, which is important when listening to Distant Stations. I did Open mine up to also get the 4 Meter Band as well as the Russian OIRT FM band for listening to E skip. Overall this is a great portable radio for Shortwave as well as Domestic Broadcast listening.
