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.

Should be much better
Volume adjusting wheel is going and was not great to start. Headphone speaker wire has insufficient gauge/thickness of plastic coating
PROS
Pretty good reception. Outside speaker is adequate. Ease of use. Built in battery charger.


CONS
Not durable. Speaker wire is insufficiently insulated. Volume control is very poor. On my third set of headphones as they fray. I use it every single night so it gets 8 -10 hrs use per day.


BEST USES
At night. Talk shows or ball games. Don't expect to get distant stations like the larger models bring in but sound quality with headphones is very good.

Great radio, purchased three
Great radio. great sound, great reception but.....I've had to purchase three over the past 5 years; the 1st one the station dial knob broke and free spins so I couldn't select stations. The second, the screen blaked out so I couldn't read the station number or any other info. Servicing was not a ailable so I purchased my third and last radio after being offered a slight 10 percent discount only because I really like this radio when it works. Rither I just had bad luck getting some lemons off the production line or these radios have certain components that self destruct within a year or two. But when it works, it's great!
PROS
Great sound, reception, and features. Nicely compact too.


CONS
Components seem to break down within a year or two; I've had to order 3 in 5 years. If this 3rd one only lasts a couple years it will be my last unfortunately.


BEST USES
Every day use, nicely transportable.

I love this little radio.
I enjoy scanning through the AM/FM/SW/ATC frequencies from time to time and saving them for later listening pleasure.
PROS
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.


CONS
I just can't think of any.


BEST USES
Fun and play.

FAQ
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?
Why does the light flash on and off when I turn the radio off?
How do I do a complete factory reset?
How do I change the audio quality from MUSIC to VOICE?
