The Palstar R30A HF shortwave receiver is a compact, high performance radio capable of receiving AM, CW and SSB signals in the 100 kHz to 30 MHz spectrum. Unlike most general coverage SW receivers, the R30 is not desensitized on the LF and MW bands, making it ideal for Standard Broadcast Band DXing.

All of this is squeezed into a footprint that fits inside a sheet of paper. The R30A receiver is also equipped with a 10 AA cell internal battery pack that automatically connects to the radio when the external adapter plug is disconnected, allowing portable operation.
