World band radios are yesterday's technology, who gives a damn, especially when you consider that international broadcasters nolonger target North America.

They make excellent AM/FM receivers even if you don't care to listen to SW. I would like to see a worldband receiver with HD Radio and NOAA weather capabilities introduced. I wonder why it hasn't been done already.


I don't need SW. I am intrigued by the Tecsun PL-880 and a clock radio, the Sangean RCR-3. Those are two radio temptations of mine but right now the house is full.

My next door neighbor recently purchased the PL-880. I have to say, I was shocked at the build quality. The radio has an incredibly solid feel, and the tuning is silky smooth. I honestly didn't realize Tecsun made radios this nice, I've never owned one, but have read good & bad reviews of many different models. It's been a couple months, and he has had nothing but positive things to say about the performance. Seems like a definite winner to me.

Are the English-langauge cultral, music, and news programs from Australia, China, Cuba, Germany, Japan, Kuwait, Romania, etc. figments of my imaginations?

Since I now have learned HF radio is meaningless and devoid of content, should I start liquidating my Icom, Kenwood, and Yaesu equipment? My National NC-125 boatanchor? My SDRs? My numerous portables? My antenna farm?

Sarcasm aside, and definitely no offense intended, there is actually lots of content still out there on the HF bands. The situation is even more so for those interesting in transmissions other than the large shortwave broadcasters.
