|Discontinued Portable Shortwave Receivers|
The Sangean ATS-818 is a quality digital world band radio with dual-conversion covering all shortwave frequencies (1.6 - 30 MHz) plus long wave (150-519 kHz), AM (520-1710 kHz) and FM (87.5-108 MHz) (stereo to headphone jack). A BFO clarifier control is included for smooth SSB (single sideband) and CW (Morse code) reception. This will allow you to listen to ham radios, plus some regular shortwave broadcast stations are now also transmitting in SSB. A big LCD display with dial lamp shows: frequency (to 1 kHz on shortwave), 24 hour time, battery indicator and signal strength. The receiver features an RF gain, tone, wide-narrow selectivity, keypad entry, manual tuning knob, plus 45 memories (18 for shortwave). There is a 9/10 kHz medium wave step switch inside the battery compartment.
All ATS-818 versions include the AC adapter and require four D cells and three AA cells (not supplied). 11.3 x 7 x 2.5 inches (296x192x68mm 2kg). The Sangean ATS-818 shown above is black, but final production was silver colored.
There is also a version with a built-in cassette recorder called the ATS-818ACS
