With AM, FM, Shortwave, Weather + Alert, Scannable VHF Aviation Band and Single Side Band
You Asked and We Listened
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". We did it. The new circuit also allowed us to improve the audio and reception slightly while keeping the layout as intuitive as possible.
You can now listen to Hams, long range aviation (commercial and military), maritime, space and even spy transmissions from all over the world. Single Side Band is an efficient and reliable way to get long range information without Internet or satellite and it's not available on your smartphone. Ham radio operators play a critical part in emergencies when virtually all normal communication is down.
Included is a CC Shortwave Reel Antenna, a pair of our original CC Buds, and a faux leather carry case.

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.
"One advantage the Skywave SSB has is that a narrow bandwidth down to 500Hz can be used to improve readability in poor conditions. Very few other radios in this class can do this. The SSB can also copy CW (Morse code) and digital modes such as RTTY, PSK31, FT8, and even slow scan TV!"
