Jay Allen always comments on the length of the ferrite rods in his reviews, but forgot to mention anything about the Tecsun's ferrite rod and none of the photos posted of the radio shows it ??

Go the 909X, great all purpose radio, a little deaf on SW, but really comes alive with a reasonable aerial. FM is great. Great ergonomics, well built, looks great sounds great.
I think it is now discontinued, I purchased mine from Keith Perron of PCJ. Not sure if he is still an agent, worth asking though as the price was unbeatable.
Best of luck!!


Last I checked, Amazon sells the 909x. I ended up getting a Degen 1103 DSP because my 12-year-old Degen died and I want to compare FM reception between the old and the new. Eventually, I may get the 909X and the PL-880.

Haven’t been here in a good long while. Just came to wish you a happy birthday, Jeff!


Sangean USA still lists the 909x as being in production. It isn't on its "Discontinued" page either.



Thanks, Ed.
