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.)
