I can verify that there have been at least two different versions of the Sangean ATS 505. I bought my first one about ten years ago. It was my first shortwave radio. After giving it to a friend, I bought a second one and noticed a number of improvements. Even the physical body of the radio was improved, especially the quality of the buttons.

I do wish Sangean would offer a new improved 505X, as they did with the 909X. Maybe I'll try that Radio Shack version.

I also agree after picking one of these up on the cheap recently, I am quite impressed. After figuring out how to switch the tuning steps I am using it to check activity on the Ham bands, and monitor a bit. It's pleasant to listen to, and does SSB quite well considering price and sophistication level. Not bad for $26.99 !!

I just left my local Radio Shack and now, I assume through the weekend, all clearance items are an additional 25% off. At our area stores, this radio is on clearance at $43.97. The 25% off brings it down to $32.98. On top of that, you will get a $10 off anything coupon to bring back on your next trip (it's dated a couple of days out)since they are also having a $10 coupon with any $30 purchase promotion. I think that makes this radio an absolute steal.

I've been listening to mine daily and I am very happy with it.
