To receive (in a major city of the Rhine-Main area):
FM: Very good reception including RDS. Clear sound, wonderful.
MW: typical MW something dumpferes sound, but many just in the evenings European broadcasters text understandable receivable when the AM RF gain is set to maximum. Overall, very good. Germany radio prima course on multiple frequencies.
LW: Very good reception of radio Germany and some French channels.
KW: Since Germany and some other important radio stations no longer send, remote stations are mainly weaker / left on, the reception is difficult. Well of course is always China Radio International and Radio Romania. In the open field I once diverse with a frequency table transmitter clicked through (practical: direct frequency input) and could really reinkriegen lot, including Cairo (funny: apparently translated and read by google translator ...).
Weather fax the German Weather Service via SSB (separate line-out output with continuously equal strong audio signal regardless of the volume setting - very well thought out) also works in the Rhine-Main area well enough that you can see the map more or less, weather radio via RTTY I have not far reinbekommen.
The telescopic antenna affects quality and is probably interchangeable, which is not clear to me how it exchanges. However, it is available as a spare part.
So far it works but as I said very stable and can withstand robust and resistant in their position.
But I do not flap after each use again. Due to the concept can not live forever, the, so far it looks good.
Now, in spite of the full score to a few constructive criticisms:
1. Not silently:
In bed at night, the unit can disturb the peace marriage.
The bright display is indeed switched off, but the quiet beep indicating each frequency input and be heard when switching between the bands can also be heard with headphones from the device. In this respect, the device is not silently under headphone listening, what my main purpose, namely the evening listening in bed, unfortunately makes virtually impossible, unless the partner or the partner is as sensitive.
The three alarm clock can only be set individually, it can not all three alarms to be activated simultaneously.
Unfortunately 2. Scan lacks a useful feature:
Overall, the search and automatic station memory is a really terrific thing, and also the search is handy thanks to squelch you will find exactly what you want. But it is the respective band always searched in circles.
What is useful for FM, with shortwave is not always great, especially since only the respective meter band is scanned in a circle. There is no way to search the entire shortwave range.
If you start the automatic search, the unit will search until the next meter tape and then searches this circle. Since just a plus point of the device, the receivability of continuous shortwave area, would also be a search function that really searched the entire shortwave helpful.
Especially during the day one receives not much - because it would be nice just to start the search until receiving some point something.
Nevertheless, the device gets very clear full marks. It is for the most part extremely well thought out and I just appreciate well thought-out.
The Internet search for a direct importer financially worthwhile, especially in light of the current discussions about the working conditions at Amazon is perhaps an alternative dealer interesting.
Produce there, there is also a comprehensive review of the device.
Total full marks, I am very satisfied.
