The Tecsun PL660 Radio with VHF Air Band is a great radio for communications enthusiasts, providing excellent reception of all major frequency bands including AM/MW, FM, Shortwave AM and SSB), Longwave, and VHF Air Band.
The Tecsun PL660 features of phase lock looped (PLL) synthesised RF circuit design, direct frequency entry, and a large LCD display make this model one of the most sensitive and full-featured portable radios available on the Australian market.
The Tecsun PL660 Radio with VHF Air Band includes synchronous detection which means that during periods of propagation fading, the Tecsun PL660 Radio’s receiver stays locked to the incoming signal. Independently selectable upper sideband (USB) and lower sideband (LSB) makes monitoring of HF utility stations such as HF Aircraft, Marine, Amateur Radio, 4WD clubs, and outback communications simple and intuitive.
The Tecsun PL660 Radio with VHF Air Band has a socket for an external antenna connection (to allow the connection of an external antenna on the Shortwave and FM bands), an antenna input attenuator to prevent signal overload from local signals, selectable IF bandwidth, tone control, and is supplied with rechargeable NiMh batteries, an approved Australian pinned charger, earphones, a protective carry case, a 6m long wire antenna and a comprehensive user manual. Available in black only.
This radio is designed to be operated from batteries, not directly from the charger supplied. Even though the charger voltage is regulated, the internal switching circuitry generates RF noise which can interfere with reception, especially on AM and Shortwave bands. Charging the receiver with the supplied 1000mAh rechargeable batteries for 5 hours will result in 9 hours battery endurance at comfortable listening level.
The latest firmware version is 215.
