Richard——I have used sync repeatedly on world band listening, mainly on the 41 and 49 meter bands and haven't yet noticed any spillover from local stations. When I do hit sync, I instantly get a cleaner signal with less noise. Now I've only done this a few times, so this is an evaluation in progress.

Pablo–––As for FM sensitivity, it all depends of course on where you live and the relative distance and strength of the stations. But here are two examples of the 600 vis a viz the 660, both off just the whip: With the 600, the best reception I could get with the 600 on our local classical station 89.9 was a 9, that is to say clear reception with just a hint of static, BUT the stereo indicators would continually flash on and off as it obtained and lost the necessary signal strength. With the 660, a 10 in reception, no static at all, and the stereo indicators stay on the whole time I am tuned in. Much the same on 89.1 our local jazz station. So whatever problems other 660s users are having on FM, I am not. Also, on AM, the 660 pulls in a distant oldies station at a 9.5-10 level whereas the 600 was maybe an 8.5. From where I sit, the 660 is just a superior radio in all aspects.

Thanks for your comment Doug! I´m still tempted with the new Sangean ATS-909X (are the positive reviews are growing everyday) but this Tecsun sounds interesting as is half the price of the Sangean..

Olá, Doug. Moro no Brasil e tenho um PL 660. Gostei muito da sua revisão. Parabéns pelo blog. Este receptor é um dos melhores que eu conheço.
Obrigado, Doug.
