The reason I suspect the bad sensitivity is that it's also an mp3 player and recorder. Probably too much internal noise to have more sensitivity. Also though, don't fall for the trap for increased sensitivity, is not always a good thing, especially in a cheaper radio.

You rather have low sensitivity than too much and overload the radio any time. This radio is not meant to be a dxing machine.

The only time I want a super sensitive radio is if I have something to fight against it, like gain control. Grundig G5, Sony IF 7600GR, Grundig 750, GE SuperRadio etc are radios meant to be very sensitive.

What would be awesome is if you could actually find shortwave broadcasts that weren't:

1. Religious
2. Political
3. In Spanish
4. About China

you can, with an antenna. some of my favorites are the insanely-knowledgable discussions about everything on 3885 and 1885, possum net on 3838 or so, all the brazilian music eg 4885/4915/4965/5045 the north afircan stuff on 4845, AIR's bass-heavy raga music on 9870. interesting DX on 12/15/17 meters..

i use the KR1ST magloop design more or less

I agree with Carlos. As a general rule, all these ultra thin pocket radios are crap. I bought the Degen DE15 and was very disappointed in its performance.
