With AM, FM, Shortwave, Weather + Alert, Scannable VHF Aviation Band and Single Side Band

The Swiss Army Knife Of Portable Radios

One of the smallest multiband radios with SSB, the new Skywave-SSB has everything the original Skywave has. But we continue to have a select group of radio enthusiasts who want more... "The CC Skywave has shortwave but it would be perfect if it had Single Side Band". The entirely new circuit also allowed us to improve the audio and reception slightly while keeping the button layout as intuitive as possible.

You can now listen to FEMA, long range aviation, ships at sea (think coast guard), space, even transmissions and other worldwide communication when nothing else is available. Single Side Band in not available on your smartphone which makes it the ultimate off the grid format.

Included is a CC Shortwave Reel Antenna, a pair of our original CC Buds, and a faux leather carry case.

General Features:
  • AM, FM, NOAA Weather band plus Alert, Shortwave (1711-29.999MHz) with SSB, VHF Aviation Band
  • Direct entry of a frequency plus auto scan and store

    (times are approximate)

Amazing quality
Using a 100' wire antenna i have received programs from all over Europe, Asia, the middle East, Africa and here in the states. It's ability to receive distant stations is incredible. Have picked up sw stations, hams on ssb with clarity. Pulls in weak an stations well. Great for talk radio. Limitations of size keep it from being able to reproduce great tone for music but it's not bad in that respect.Battery life is much better than i expected using rechargeable.Small size makes it perfect for hiking-camping and travel or for morning coffee watching the sunrise. For all this radio does you would be hard pressed to find anything that compares to it.
Reception, battery life.

Does not scan all the sw band 11meters.Could use an antenna port.

I use it all the time camping, outdoor activities, and at home.

An Amazing and Versatile Radio
I took a chance and purchased an orphan Skywave SSB, and I could not be happier. There was nothing about the orphan that didn't say new and the performance is terrific. With my personal interests including both air band and Shortwave, including the Ham Bands and thus SSB, this radio is a perfect package. I compared it's sensitivity on Shortwave to two other radios and it was equal or better. I compared its' air band performance to a good digital scanner, and it was again equal or better, even including a squelch function. Lots of features and options in this radio, especially for optimizing SSB listening, so read the manual and enjoy the results. The tiny size of it with all the features and performance is simply amazing.
Nearly every frequency and type of reception you'll ever need is included.Sensitivity and SW selectivity is great.The convenience of the tiny size is like icing on the cake.

None - Although to get all the performance from it on SSB, be sure to read the manual and practice using it. You'll be thrilled.

AM is great, FM sensitivity and selectivity is even better, but it really excels at SWL and Ham Band / SSB listening, with the Air and Weather bands both excellent performers too. Hard to say what is the Best Use when it does it all so well.

All I can say is wow!
Great and fun radio. Very good on shortwave
Packs a big punch for it's size

Am selectivity could be a little better put this radio shines on the Shortwave Bands. The small speaker sounds about as good as it can. I plug my radio into headphones and external speakers for better sound on SW, SSB/AM/FM

Great for listening on the go.

I noticed my display light is blinking on and off. Why is this happening?
Does the CC Skywave SSB Radio include a beat frequency oscillator (BFO) that can be adjusted?
