|Portable Shortwave Receivers|
The Sangean ATS-505P is a great value. Coverage includes longwave from 153 - 279 kHz, AM from 520-1710, shortwave solid from 1711-29999 kHz and FM 87.5-108 MHz (stereo to earphone jack). The backlit display can show either the frequency or the time (12 or 24 hour format). Tune via the manual tuning knob, Up-Down buttons, automatic tuning, keypad entry or from the 45 memories. The memories are divided into 5 pages of 9 memories each. There is one page available for long wave, one for medium wave, one for FM and two for shortwave. The ATS-505P even tunes Morse code and single sideband (SSB) using a separate Clarify knob on the side of the radio. Single Sideband allows for the reception of two-way communications such as amateur radio, military, maritime and international aeronautical traffic. You may press in the tuning knob to select between normal and fine tuning (1 or 10 kHz on AM/LW and 1 or 5 kHz on shortwave).
Other features include: FM stereo to headphone jack, 9/10 kHz AM step, beep on/off, dial lock, dial lamp, stereo-mono switch, alarm by radio or buzzer, auto-scan, sleep-timer (15-120 minutes), tune LED, stereo-mono switch, DX-Local Switch, shortwave external antenna input (3.5 mm) and 6 VDC input jack.
