Performance and practical notes :
Cheap receiver of good overall performance with the particularity of using mechanical tuning, without PLL synthesizer, on medium and short waves bands. The frequency range in the SW band include almost all the segments destined for broadcasting stations while the sensitivity is suitable to guarantee effective listening in many conditions. The use in the DX area is limited due to the mediocre selectivity and dynamic range in the presence of strong signals, while the audio output supported by a generously sized speaker is noteworthy.
