Full hf coverage,lf,mf,fm,
External sockets for headphones,line out,aerial,
2 aa batteries,
Good performance for its size,
Speaker audio a bit tinny
Easy to use,
No ssb for 10m
Sound squelch feature ,scanner doesn't stop on silent carriers,
Mains adapter built in,
Bad point,poor quality controls,volume control became noisy/scratchy after a years careful use.
Neat watching bandscope on hf with long wire.
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.
Auto noise limiter
Good quality rotary controls
Performance sensitivity on air and probably better than other leading handhelds,
Also switch on afc then scan vhf bands,really neat watching scanner pinpoint active channels,
Bad points,scanning speed painfully slow,bandscope range too limited,no signal meter.
Quality Sony product
Full hf coverage
Basic signal meter
Only bad points,expensive,red led signal meter a bit basic,mains adapter not built in,rotary tuning control a bit too free wheeling.
Competent easy to use handheld
Nfm(except airband am)mode
100 channels and 10 monitor channels
Scan speed 50chs per second
Limit search 100 steps per second
4 aa batteries
If first 10.8mhz second 450khz
Airband sensitivity 1.3uv
Steps airband 12.5
Still a good scanner for airband use despite the introduction of 8.33 steps on some new channels.
