The PL365 has several unique features including the use of an external ferrite rod antenna (or also the Tecsun AM loop) for LW/MW reception and it provides FM coverage down to 76 MHz or 87.5 MHz, selectable. It offer a mix of functions not present in the previous PL-360 model, with the same dimensions and walkie talkie look.
This Tecsun is great for portable listening on shortwave, whether AM broadcast or SSB radio-amateur stations.
