Product Description 12-band Compact World Band Receiver With Led – Sangean12-band, Ultra-compact World Band Am/FM Short-wave Receiver Large, Easy-to-read Tuning Led Headphone Jacksangean Sg622 12-band Compact World Band Receiver With Led portable Personal Audio – Radio/cassette Players Amazon.com For those who have a burgeoning interest in shortwave radio or who don’t like to be without news and music when traveling, the Sangean SG-622 10-band portable receiver makes an ideal travel companion. Small enough to slip into a jacket pocket but powerful enough so you can stay in touch with the world, you’ll barely need to glance at the operating instructions before you’ll be up and running with this nifty little device. Solid and compact, the SG-622 includes just the essentials: a retractable antenna, volume and tuning knobs, and a wide face displaying the bands and frequencies. Tuning is accomplished by clicking a switch to the appropriate band, then dialing up or down, refining the tuning by hand as you go. The all-inclusive frequency display results in imprecise indications, so it is not possible to determine exactly which frequency you are tuning in. But our reception in all bands on any strong signal was excellent. Overall, we found this a sensitive radio with great portability that would make great introductory piece for anyone interested in shortwave radio listening. The Sangean SG-622 is powered by 3 AA batteries, but consider adding an AC adapter to reduce your battery expense. It comes with a one-year warranty on parts and labor. Pros: Excellent reception Great portability Extremely easy to use, great for the novice Cons: Does not include adapter Antenna does not have 360-degree rotation for improving reception Ambiguous frequency display
