The 660 certainly has flaws on the designer end. You can't even stick the antenna straight up in the air on that unit while it's on that stand, and the stand itself is very flimsy.

I do think the 660 has the 1103 beat on shortwave and on FM reception. And the 660 having a real volume knob on top of having separate usb/lsb is a certain plus for the 660. And the number pad on the 660 is superior than the 1103.

But where the 1103 beats the pants off the 660 is on AM reception off the ferrite, and the soft mod that allows you to use a longwire antenna for AM reception with the 1103 is a huge plus over the 660.

One other thing the Tecsun 660 has over the 1103 is superior audio from the speaker. Although my 660 has suddenly become deaf on SW using the whip antenna. Still works with an external antenna. FM and airband is unaffected. Software problem maybe?

Loren, did you try a reset of the 660?? the reset button is the bottom of the radio. If that doesn't work, maybe a bad static charge from the antenna disabled it.

Oh, forgot to add, yea I'll concede the 660 the advantage over the 1103 on the speaker, especially on FM.
