The Sony® ICF-SW100S has all the features of a full-sized portable, but is small enough to fit into your shirt pocket. Frequency coverage includes 76-108 MHz FM and complete coverage of long wave, medium wave and shortwave from from 150 - 29999 kHz continuously. The PLL quartz frequency digital synthesized tuning is the world's most accurate drift-free tuning method and makes tuning-in desired stations simple and precise. The dual-conversion superheterodyne circuitry provides high sensitivity and interference rejection. A synchronous detector with selectable sideband is included to help reduce the effects of adjacent channel interference and fading. The ICF-SW100S even receives SSB single sideband and morse code signals.
The world time clock feature provides local and 24-city name/time display. 50 memory station presets allow storage and recall of frequency and station name at a touch of a button. The auto scan feature allows scanning of available stations one at a time with a few seconds pause before resuming or can hold on a specific frequency. Other features include 1 kHz tuning, dual clock/alarm, LED tuning indicator, tone control and FM stereo via headphone jack. The right side of the radio also includes a Line Output Jack for tape recording plus a slide switch for FM Mono/Stereo or Tone. The side of the radio has a power lock switch plus a DX/Local Switch. This radio can be played in the "closed" position. There are small rear speaker ports on the top of the radio, or you may use the supplied stereo ear buds. The bottom of the radio features an international time chart and reset button.
