|Discontinued Portable Shortwave Receivers|
The Sangean ATS-818ACS is a quality digital world band radio with a built-in monaural cassette recorder. It has a charcoal gray colored plastic case. This dual-conversion receivers covers all shortwave frequencies (1.6 - 30 MHz) plus long wave (150-519 kHz), AM (520-1710 kHz) and FM (87.5-108 MHz) (stereo to headphone jack). A BFO clarifier control is included for smooth SSB (single sideband) and CW (Morse code) reception. This will allow you to listen to ham radio operators, plus some regular shortwave broadcast stations that are now also transmitting in SSB.

The receiver features an RF gain, tone, external antenna jack (3.5mm), wide-narrow selectivity, keypad entry, manual tuning knob, plus 45 memories.
The cassette recorder features a built-in mic and has auto-shutoff. You can record directly from the radio even with the timer function. There is a 9/10 kHz MW switch inside the battery compartment. Click here to view functions.
