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.
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 enjoy scanning through the AM/FM/SW/ATC frequencies from time to time and saving them for later listening pleasure.
It is small,filled with all kids of electronic surprises and the sound is exceptional. I listen to BBC on PBS every night and sometimes wake up and turn it off.
I just can't think of any.
Fun and play.
