The CC Skywave™ opens up a marvelous world of radio at home or when you're traveling. It has an intuitive layout so it is easy to use and has exceptional overall performance. Our customers are calling it the "Ultimate Travel Radio". The reception, audio and durable build are what this radio excels at.

General Features:
  • AM, FM, Weather plus Alert, Shortwave (2.3-26.1 MHz) and Air Aviation Band
  • Direct entry of a frequency plus auto scan and store
  • Lighted LCD display
  • Selectable fast or fine tuning on all bands except weather
  • 400 memory presets
  • Runs on (2) AA Alkaline batteries (not included)

Never listened to the Aviation band? This band lets you listen to nearby pilots, air traffic controllers and ground crew. When traveling, airline schedule changes and problems can be perplexing and annoying. Listening to control towers can provide endless entertainment and informative tidbits of information. It is as simple as telling the Skywave to scan for an active frequency until you find some action. The best one is usually the approach frequency used for planes that are landing and you'll know if you've found the correct one when you hear it. You can also search the web for "air traffic control radio Seattle" for example, to find information and to learn more about aviation radio. If you live next to a smaller airport you could ask a local pilot for the frequency or look up "common traffic advisory frequency" plus the airport name. English is the standard language used in aviation at all airports worldwide.

When traveling abroad, unless you have checked local laws, tuck your Skywave™ into a safe corner of your carry-on. An Airband radio may not be legal to have in some countries.

I just can't think of any.

Manual
Note: Specifications are subject to change without notice.
  • I followed the user manual and cannot set the ALARM to wake with beep. The Manual says that the alarm should be set to beep by default but it wakes with the radio instead. How can I switch the alarm to beep?

    We apologize for this mistake. To switch the Alarm to beep, press the #5 button once during alarm setup. You will notice that the speaker icon has disappeared from the screen indicating that only beep is set.

  • Why does the light flash on and off when I turn the radio off?

    The Weather Alert is turned on. This is a reminder that the alert feature is on and is working. It is not recommended to leave on frequently when using batteries.

  • How do I do a complete factory reset?

    With the power off, press and hold memory buttons #4 and #6 until the radio beeps four times and the display flashes.

  • How do I change the audio quality from MUSIC to VOICE?

    Press and hold the PAGE button for 3 seconds. You should hear a beep and see the setting change on the screen. To switch back, hold the PAGE button again for 3 seconds.

What's in the Box
  • CC Skywave Radio
  • Carry Case
  • CC Buds Earphones
  • This WiFi Antenna is hands down the best. It allows me to connect to a business almost a half mile away. Two months time and this baby paid for itself. I am a very happy with my purchase.
    — John A., Mill Valley, CA
  • This radio deserves five stars because it sounds great, the ease of use and preset stations. This radio will become your favorite radio, also backed by great customer service if ever needed, thank you very much.
    — Pete P., Santa Rosa, CA
  • This is an excellent internet radio. I have had the unit playing constantly from the time I received it. Excellent sound for such a small unit and the remote works wonderfully.
    — James H., Richmond, BC
  • Good sound, lightweight and comfortable; not too tight on the head. I like one feature; it doesn't tell you where to place the speakers, left side or right side.
    — Harry W., Manassas, VA
  • I purchase this product specifically for AM recordings and it has worked superbly. I wanted to wait awhile before I gave my opinion on the product. It has worded exactly as advertised and more.
    — Jack L., San Pedro, CA
  • Very nice, economical home lighting. If you're used to the white light of fluorescent bulb replacements, these will offer the same type with no toxic ingredients or damaging UV radiation.
    — Gary B., San Francisco, CA
  • This antenna does work well; however placement and the shape you have it bent into is very important. I live about 70 miles away from Toronto and receive a lot of Toronto FM stations static free with the FM reflect.
    — Thomas S., Buffalo, NY
  • I'm not sure how I gone this far in life without it. I just love it. The best sound ever from an AM radio.
    — James G., Springfield, MA
  • This device is awesome. As a contractor, I can not access my customer's network for security reasons. Now, with my office on the second floor, I can connect to a WiFi hotspot 1.5 miles away and my signal strength is strong!
    — Robert S., Tabernacle, NJ
  • I just received my EP radio yesterday. I'm totally impressed with the old school simplicity and the modern day sound quality. Thank you, C.Crane!
    — David C., Raleigh, NC
  • I have had only one, thank the lord, occasion to use this in and emergency situation and it worked flawlessly. Only one in the area with radio for two days of power loss... Thank you CCrane!!
    — Vernon P., Dufur, OR
  • This radio is totally fantastic!!! It will provide service in any condition and works as engineered and advertised. I am going to order more units for all family members.
    — Glen B., Bethlehem, PA
  • This radio is wonderful. Small but powerful. Several years of service and no problems.
    — William B., Litchfield, IL
  • Just received this little jewel... did not open the manual and I was listening to NPR within minutes... no kidding. I'm a radio guy and the audio is great and look forward to a lot of great listening.
