Tecsun PL880

The Tecsun PL-880 offers features not previously available in a radio of this size and price. As expected, you get full coverage of long wave 100-519 kHz, AM from 520-1710 kHz, shortwave from 1.7-30 MHz and FM from 64-108 MHz. Designed for the serious listener and DXer, you can select four bandwidths in AM mode:  9, 5, 3.5 or 2.3 kHz and five bandwidths in SSB mode: 4, 3, 2.3, 1.2 and 0.5 kHz. A mere 3,050 memories are available. Scanning on shortwave is supported from 2250-26100 kHz. This radio even has interesting undocumented features such as sync. lock, variable muting, adding seconds display, etc. The triple conversion architecture provides performance not previously available at this price point.

Your Tecsun PL-880 system includes:  carry pouch, ear buds, wire antenna, USB cable and #18650 Li-ion battery. In order to charge the included battery, you will need a USB power supply. You may already have one if you have a cell phone. If not please purchase one of the AC adapters listed below.
