For those of you who utilize the original chatroom- shortwave radio, you may have noticed that the past 4 years haven’t been great receptionally. According to Eton, this year is seeing an upswing due to the sunspot cycle, making signal strength clear and available nearly constantly. To take advantage of that, Eton is offering the S450DLX Shortwave Radio. Among the new features are:
-“AM/MW (520-1710 KHz / 522-1620 KHz), FM (88-108 MHz), SW (continuous frequency range from 1711-29999kHz)
– High performance IC and MOSFET: Provides high sensitivity, strong anti-interference, low background noise and lower distortion
– MCU Control (micro controller unit) and large LCD backlight display with frequency, clock, battery level indicator and signal strength indicator
– AM band features dual conversion PLL technology: provides anti-image rejection
The S450DLX has increased functionality with a 50 station memory (10 presets for each band), a dual alarm with wakeup/snooze/sleep functions and an AM/FM/SW external antenna input socket with the ability to connect to cable FM. The sound quality is amplified with a large, built-in 5-inch full-range speaker with variable independent bass and treble control, and features a stereo line level audio input/output and stereo/mono selection. The black field radio is transported with the attached strap-style carrying handle.”
Available early 2011.
