An extremely good product, has completely replaced my 25 year old. An extremely good product, has completely replaced my 25 year old tatung radio feature for featture. Arrived on time and i would use this seller again.
This transistor radio is ideal for my needs. It affords me the ability of listening to all the radio bands i use both as a radio amateur and as a casual broadcast band listener also. With the addition of the airband frequency range, and my proximity to the local airport, this affords another dimension to my listening pleasure. The tecsun fulfils all my requirements in portability and performance, if any criticism at all is warranted, i think a little more thought could have been used in the design of the metal (paperclip) type design for the base, particularly with regard to shelf space availability. Otherwise a superb little piece of kit.

Small portable radio packed with hi-tech. This is a small radio, about the size of a paperback book, which can receive fm/lw/mw/sw plus air band and ssb. If you just want to listen to normal radio stations this radio will work fine, but there are cheaper radios that will work just as well. However, if you’re interested in listening to stations from abroad, air traffic, or even radio hams, then this is a great radio. If you use the headphones you can listen to fm in stereo, although the radio only has a mono speaker. I won’t list all the facilities this radio has, you can google ‘tecsun pl-660’ to find lots of information, i’ll just say that tecsun is a chinese company that make radios for the brand names grundig and eton as well as under their own name, so they know what they’re doing. This is the kind of radio that people who have radio as a hobby would buy.

Tecsun PL-660 Portable Shortwave FM / AM World Radio Compact Receiver : Its the best little shortwave/fm/vhf radio i’ve bought todate. Even on the mains it picks ups radio hams which i’m very pleased about.
I have found the tecsun pl660 to be an excellent all round radio. It performs reasonably well on bc bands with a good audio output. Its performance on the hf bands is good – even using the small wire antenna supplied. The radio even performs reasonably well on the crowded radio amateur hf bands and the bfo is sufficient to receive many cw signals with ease. On the mw-lw bands , the performance is good and it even picks up my local aircraft beacon on lf. The coverage is great – from 100khz lf to 30mhz with no real gaps. Operation is intuitive, once you get used to the small size of the unit. The bonus of course, is the price- not forgetting the air band .
Excellent radio and service. This is an excellent radio in its category. It is packed with lots of features and is worth the money. Also, it was delivered in a super short time (3 days) :-).

The radio you have always wanted. . Everything you’ve heard about this radio is true. I bought mine because i’d read that it was such a good radio and i haven’t been disappointed. It’s as good at home as it is on the road and even the supplied long wire works really well. Getting it up and running is simplicity itself and as long as you buy some decent rechargeable batteries you’ll have no problems at all. An excellent radio and great service from the supplier through amazon. I have no complaints at all.
Met expectation and fit for purpose. Product delivered well packaged. Briefly tested before giving it out and was satified with its functionality.
Radio for about 2 years now and i absolutely love it. It is definitely the best radio i. Had this radio for about 2 years now and i absolutely love it. It is definitely the best radio i have (out of maybe 5 or 6 of varying sizes and qualities) and the only one i use for shortwave regularly. It has all the features you could want from a radio, great sensitivity on all frequencies, is compact and comes with a handy wire antenna for even better reception especially outdoor.
I’m a retired radiooperator, ships and coaststations, and i have been looking for something like this for years. Specially interested in short wave morse code. The radio has a built in whip antenna – good enough – but even better with the length of wire antenna that came with the radio. There is a few other good features, like air band frequencies etc etc, but it came fully up to my expectations, listening to far off stations communicating in morse code, even though in these days it is mostly ham radio operators ‘on the air’.
