excellent portable

Sony Air-8, Handheld HF/VHF Scanner / receiver

This one deserves a mention if only for the wide/narrow am filter on air and,switch am filter to wide then listen to strong air signals in glorious am style audio, From what I remember this has full coverage from lf to fm,if you want air and or mid vhf you have to screw on the supplied adapter to the aerial socket,maybe a scruffy afterthought but well worth it for air and audio quality, Also features a bfo for basic hf use, Neat looking as well.
