The Sony ICF-Pro 70 (Hi Scan) is similar in specs to the Sony ICF-Pro 80 (Hi Scan) but comes in 3 versions with different frequency coverage, see below.
ICF-PRO70 and ICF-PRO80 are portable solid-state LW, MW, SW and FM receivers, also known as travel receivers, introduced around 1987 by Sony in Tokyo (Japan). Although they were intended for the civil market, they were often used by spies and agents for reception of Numbers Stations.
The receiver has the shape of a handheld radio, and has controls at the front and at the top. A relatively large high-quality speaker is present at the bottom of the front side. User interaction is via the keyboard and the liquid crystal display (LCD), both of which are placed at the front.
