You would love a portable HF receiver! You are on a budget and your wish list includes PLL, AM, FM, SSB, MW, SW and a clock but you thought you where only dreaming?
JOTA is coming up in October and I frequently get asked to recommend a portable radio receiver that could let scouts of all ages tune around and listen in to JOTA stations without the complications of having an unsupervised transmitter sitting in the campsite or station. Check this out… AM, FM and Single Sideband with good coverage range, this portable receiver may meet the needs of new amateur operators, leaders and scouts alike. Includes rechargeable battery… all for under $350, sounds like a good deal. Note, I have no commercial interest in this company, other than buying one myself… It works great! http://tecsunradios.com.au/sto…/product/tecsun-pl880-radio/…
Need Air Band as well… consider http://tecsunradios.com.au/…/tecsun-pl660-radio-vhf-air-ba…/ This one is smaller and under $200.
Please note, we have no commercial affiliation with this company. – Philip VK3JNI
