Sangean ATS-803A

The Sangean ATS-803A put Sangean on the map in the world of shortwave radio. It follows on the success of the earlier ATS-803, but adds Wide-Narrow selectivity and an improved knob set. This 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. An 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 14 memories (9 for your favorite stations and 5 for last setting of five bands). There is a 9/10 kHz MW step switch inside the battery compartment. There is an external RCA phone antenna jack on the rear panel with INT/EXT switch. The left panel has 3.5mm earphone jack plus a DIN type jack for tape recording.

The ATS-803A includes the AC adapter and requires six D cells and two AA cells (cells not supplied). 11.5 x 6.3 x 2.4 inches (293x160x60mm 1.75 kg).
