Yes indeed! I have the RF 1170 (it has Low-High-UHF PSB instead of SW. The am is outrageous! I can pick up S. America stations in NY. Beats the GE SR handsdown.
I wish I could find an 1180!

I have found a 1180 at the local goodwill here in Ontario Canada. Nice price of $10.. i would have bought a small transistor radio for that price ! LOL.. so been searching for shortwave radio for many years this is my first . The first thing I noticed and was confirmed here, was the AM has such strength and ability .. astonishing. have been struggling getting good AM for several years.. during the daytime with a console Marantz AM is just a distorted mess. A bonus with this radio, it was serviced in 2007..according to the big red sticker on the back. The pots are a bit scratchy .. so I'll do some de-oxiting this evening. The antenna is in perfect shape as well as the rotating antenna. The detachable handle appears to be missing. I can always count on vintage Panasonic / Technics. This thing is a star. Great article thanks for taking the time to share!
