Excellent Portable Radio

The quality of this unit is exceptional. The dials and buttons all work smoothly. I purchased this radio specifically for the shortwave functions. This model can pick up continous shortwave coverage through all bands including single side band (ham radio) and CB. This is the only small portable with synchronous detection which reduces fading on shortwave and AM bands. If you like talk radio, ham radio, and shortwave broadcasts then this is the radio for you. FM on this radio is ok but the sin...

This is one of the few Sony products that is still made in Japan and you can tell immediately the heft and quality of the unit when holding it. Nice job Sony!

Can you make it more painful to use this thing?

I bought this radio because I wanted world band reception. So far (1 week) I haven't been successful in receiving any stations, including any local AM stations. FM seems to work fine. One cautionary note about this radio is it's absurdly complex, archaic, and illogical controls. I predict it will inhibit usage because I won't remember all the complexities. There is no straight forward way to dial stations as you might with a traditional turn knob. You have to press several buttons just to get...

One cautionary note about this radio is it's absurdly complex, archaic, and illogical controls. I predict it will inhibit usage because I won't remember all the complexities. There is no straight forward way to dial stations as you might with a traditional turn knob. You have to press several buttons just to get to tune in a channel or even to scan. Some buttons have dual functions, so you have to remember what mode you are in. If you're not quick enough to press the next button, the function is cancelled. This radio reminds of the half-baked, user unfriendly automotive controls via a touch screen which make it painful to get some basic tasks accomplished.

Good Radio

By

from Chihuahua, México  -  Frequent Traveler

A month with this good radio, I buy this in Adorama, I use it for my travels in Chihuahua MX, I use NiMH battery´s and have a very long time to use. The only thing that i like to change is the small screen and the poor led light, but i thing this help to save power. After buy I compare this with the G3, I thing later I buy the G3 only to have the Air band and general compare.

Phenominal Radio!!!

By

from Saginaw, MI

As a long time amateur radio operator, I've used receivers and transceivers costing literally 30 times as much as the ICF-SW7600GR. To put it mildly, I am VERY impressed with this little gem!!! It easily picks up SSB and CW signals on all of the low bands with just the whip antenna and is stable as a rock too. Contrary to other comments, the fidelity is also excellent even with just the internal speaker and with head phones, it's full spectrum. No ham or even casual SWL'er should be without one of these amazing little, go any where receivers!!! An AC adapter for what is intended to be a portable receiver makes zero sense which is likely the reason why one isn't provided.

Great Radio NOT MADE IN CHINA

By

from Los Angeles  -  Practical

I was worried that the sync Sony SW7600GR would not be effective. But this is not the case at all it is highly effective. Folk music from Romania, guaracha and guajiros music from Radio Habana and Radio New York International on WBCQ are all a total joy to listen to now without a hint of distortion.

I read many, many reviews before buying it, and in no way does the reception described by others come across for me. I only get the big stations, and i have a very good antenna system

Fun that is practically practical

By

from Puerto Escondito (Loretto, MX)  -  Practical

Bought the Sony to get SSB weather reports and weather fax transmissions while on the Sea of Cortez. Pegging the Geek Meeter by enjoying the Voice of America, and news from Australia... Chinese and Japanese stations are easy to pick up. Too bad I don't understand either. Great radio reception and frequency guide. Will need some work to get the weather info I needed. Oh, it survived a 6' freefall to the hardwood floor(OK, the antenna seems a little loose now).
