Preview of a Brand-New World Band Portable
Nevada: Tecsun PL-330
Nevada has a new Tecsun PL-330 short wave radio arriving later this month. It is a portable world band radio with DSP and SSB reception, covering FM (stereo), long, medium and short wave. Synchronous detection technology is available to suppress adjacent channel interference. The Easy Tuning (ETM) functionality has a radio frequency schedule function, making tuning more convenient and faster.
The radio can store up to 650 frequencies manually, semi-automatically, and fully automatic (ATS), of which 100 are for FM/long wave, 150 for medium wave, and 300 for short wave. The radio has an external antenna jack, measures 139×85×26 mm and weighs ca. 210g (without lithium battery). We will review this radio in full in RadioUser in one of the next issues.
Mike Devereux at Nevada is expecting stock any time now.
