You may have noticed this new acronym popping up on some of our products. RoHS stands for Restrictions on Hazardous Substances, and it's a directive that could have a huge impact on the production and disposal of consumer electronics. First adopted in Europe in 2006 (and later adopted in California in 2007), RoHS restricts the use of six dangerous substances in lots of common electronics. According to the official RoHS compliance Web site (www.rohs.eu), the RoHS symbol indicates that "new electrical and electronic equipment put on the market does not contain any of the six banned substances: lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, poly-brominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), in quantities exceeding maximum concentration values."
While some military and medical equipment is exempt from RoHS compliance, the electronics governed by the standard are among the most common you'll find in your home, from radios to MP3 players to cell phones and (increasingly) computers. In practical terms, the standard protects factory workers at the production level, sharply reducing their exposure to hazardous substances. The standard also has a profound impact on the disposal and recycling of electronics, in that disposed substances will no longer have at least six of the most hazardous chemicals formerly found in electronics, and recycled electronics will not expose workers to toxics as they harvest components.
The purpose of the CCRadio-SW was born when an engineer’s time went into producing some of the best reception and audio you could find in a portable radio. It has all the necessary tunings and tweakings available for excellent performance under various conditions and offers the best combination of sensitivity, selectivity and audio performance for any radio of this size.
This masterful radio delivers some of the best FM reception and, thanks to the built-in Twin Coil Ferrite® Antenna, the AM is exceptional. It has continuous coverage of the shortwave band with excellent reception right off the whip antenna. The five-inch speaker is accurate, pleasant and reproduces deeper bass than any portable of similar size.
The CCRadio-SW is one of the few radios with a mono switch. When activated the radio filters out the stereo FM multiplex signal which can add a hissing noise when listening to a weak station. It will only tune in the mono broadcast found on all FM stations.
