The Portable Shortwave World Reporter

This is the portable radio that receives nearly every radio wavelength across the globe. The radio receives AM (520-1710 kHz), FM (87.5-108 MHz) and shortwave frequencies (1.711 - 29.999 MHz)—allowing you to keep up with current events worldwide. The radio is equipped with RDS (Radio Data System) that displays an RDS-enabled FM station’s call letters, song title, the artist’s name, and music genre (FM only) on the LCD. Users can select a wide or narrow bandwidth to improve audio fidelity and reduce distortion, adjust the RF gain, bass, and treble, and store up to 50 stations in its memory. It can also serve as a wireless external speaker for a smartphone or tablet when paired via Bluetooth. The radio has a built-in strap and weighs less than 4 lbs. to enable ease of portability. Requires four D batteries or plugs into AC with included adapter. With headphone jack, 48"-long telescoping antenna, and backlit display. 7" H x 12 1/2" W x 3" D. (3 3/4 lbs.)
