Unlike typical shortwave radios, this is the model that also receives longwave broadcasts. Operating at 100-519 kHz, just below the AM band (520-1710 kHz), longwave signals are used by those interested in low-frequency experimental radio (LowFER) communications as well as ITU Region 1 broadcasters in Europe and as far away as Mongolia. The radio also operates in the shortwave band (1711 kHz - 30 MHz) with single-sideband (SSB) tuning for listening to two-way shortwave communications. In addition to FM reception (88-108 MHz), it can listen to civilian aircraft radio transmissions in the 117-137 MHz frequency band. Stores up to 100 favorite stations for each frequency band. Its built-in horizontal antenna rotates 360° for precise AM reception while its telescoping antenna pulls in FM, SW, and aircraft band signals. Requires additional longwave antenna to receive LW signal; additional external shortwave antenna can enhance SW reception. Powered by included AC adapter or requires four D batteries. 7 1/4" H x 14" W x 6 1/4" D. (7 lbs.)

My Husband ~Loved~ It!
from San Francisco, CA
My husband has always been a short/long wave fanatic but in the last few years he has not had the space for a big set up. He ~loved~ this gift. He knew the brand, and says they're a really trusted brand. When I went to bed last night, he was happily tuning in the world....
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Surely this is the best radio available
from Salem, WV
I still have my old Zenith Trans-Oceanic radio, which was the best radio ever; however, that technology is now obsolete, and the FM band stopped working. Also, it weighs a TON. This radio is everything the ZTO was, and much smaller and lighter. Oh yes - it is also digital. I now have two of them; if were financially feasible, I would have a dozen!

from Vail, Arizona
You can expect the best from Grundig and Hammacher Schlimmer.I am a novice SWLer and been away from it for many years. A lot has changed but Grundig has stayed abreast of technology in the digital and radio fields.Easy, fast, and accurate tuning with 500 data storage lockers.Fast service. Had purchase within a week. Very satisfied.
