radio. I have used it for about two weeks now.
Price paid $7.99 in new clamshell package.
The features include 9 Bands. They are as follows :
AM - 530 - 1700 KHZ
FM - 87.5 - 108.5 MHZ
SW1 - 5.60 - 5.00 MHZ
SW2 - 7.15 - 7.40 MHZ
SW3 - 8.60 - 9.10 MHZ
SW4 - 9.85 - 10.65 MHZ
SW5 - 13.35 - 16.05 MHZ
SW6 - 15.15 - 16.40 MHZ
SW7 - 20.85 - 23.20 MHZ
The AM reception for this little pocket is
quite good. AM Broadcasts receive quite clear and
strong. FM is equally nice as well. Shortwave
reception is better at night for listening.
Other features include a digital tuning display.
A built in clock and alarm clock. Also a DX and local
switch is provided as well. A DX mode receives more
distant broadcasts better ( or weaker broadcasts ) and
the local mode attenuates the the weaker stations.
Im impressed with Coby shortwave radios for value and
performance. I also own the CX-CB12 shortwave radio
and written a review here on epinions.
In comparing these two radios, much of what I said
applies equally to this radio. This radio is smaller
than the CX-CB12. It loses 3 bands but adds a digital
display and a clock/alarm clock. I prefer this radio
over the CX-CB12 due to its smaller size and retains
the same if not better performance. Those other 3 bands
rarely had stations on them, so missing them on this
radio is really no bother. However I think the tuning
is done analog with a digital display ( no PLL ).
If you are looking for a smart SW radio with great AM
performance with 7 SW Bands then look no further. Coby
has done it again.
