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.

Excellent radio, for a great price
Would not hesitate to order this product and dealing with Crane was as simple as it gets.
PROS
I don't know why someone would buy new if an orpharn is available. If I didn't know better I would think it was new. My wife and I bought this for my father-in-law for his 91st birthday. He had been talking about wanting a short wave radio. This one fit the bill. He says it sounds great,likes the ear plugs and enjoys also listening to the pilots.


CONS
Their is only one negative,and that is really not a knock on the rafio itself. It is a bit small for someone getting older whose hands don't quite work the as well as they used to.

Tiny But Powerful
I've been a C Crane customer for many years and have purchased many units of varying sizes and applications. All perform wonderfully even after decades of use. Sometimes paying a little more is worth it!
PROS
A perfect on-the-go radio that produces excellent reception. I find using Sony earplugs produces a sound similar to a big expensive unit. Maybe a bit pricey but the CCrane brand tells you with care it will give you service for many


CONS
It's small and the speaker is small so using ear plugs works wonderfully.


BEST USES
On the move,traveling or other applications where you can hear radio.
