Grundig YB-400

The Yacht Boy 400 is praised in the Passport To World Band Radio as "Best performance for price/size category ... right up there with very best among world band radios." Passport'95 rates the YB-400 as "The Compact model most preferred by our panelist in Eastern North America and Europe for listening to major world band stations." Coverage is complete including long wave (144-353 kHz), AM band to 1710 kHz and shortwave from 1711 to 30000 kHz. FM (87.5-108 MHz) is included with stereo provided to the headphone jack. A thumb wheel knob on the side of the radio provides smooth single side band (SSB) tuning. The illuminated digital display provides tuning resolution at 1 or 5 kHz on shortwave. Two bandwidths are featured. The narrow position affords maximum selectivity, or the wide position may be chosen for best audio fidelity. The keypad will quickly get you to any frequency or store up to 40 of your favorite stations in the presets. The presets may be accessed directly or you can scan through them by using the radio's second set of UP/DOWN buttons. The YB-400 can also frequency search. The dual digital clock is visible while the radio is playing. Other refinements include: snooze and sleep buttons, lock, HI/LOW tone switch, LOCAL/DX switch, and 9/10 kHz MW scan selection. External jacks are provided to earphone (3.5 mm), antenna (3.5 mm) and 9 VDC input. The YB-400 comes ready to go with six AA cells, stereo ear plugs, wind-up antenna, Owners Manual and carry case. 8W x 5H x 1.5D inches. 1 lb. 5 oz. This model may also be operated from 120 VAC with the optional 400ACA AC adapter.

The YB-400 has been discontinued and replaced by the YB-400PE.
