The Tecsun PL365 radio is the latest model in our truly handheld range of multiband radios. The unique shape and size of the Tecsun PL365 design was based around the requirements of our military and law enforcement customers so that the radio could easily fit onto a belt clip or backpack pocket. This has to be the smallest HF receiver with SSB capability in the world !
The Tecsun PL365’s RF design has been upgraded and now utilises the SiLabs Si 4735 chipset (the earlier model PL360 utilised the Si 4734 chipset). The new chipset adds Single Side Band (SSB) to the Tecsun PL365 as well as increasing the coverage of the SW band up to 30 MHz. The Tecsun PL365 further improves audio clarity of received signals by utilising Digital Signal Processing technology to process the received audio and cancel out any background and RF noise.
Improvements have been made to extend the battery life of the Tecsun PL365 out to a maximum of 225 hours on a set of three Alkaline AA cells. Additionally, the Tecsun PL365 also includes internal charging capabilities to recharge AA cells (not supplied) via the radio’s USB connection port.
Features carried over from the previous model (Tecsun PL360) include the use of an external ferrite rod antenna for AM reception. The use of an external ferrite rod antenna with the Tecsun PL365 is to overcome the form factor limitation of the handheld style and provide impressive AM (MW) performance for its class. Further improvements of AM reception can be achieved by utilising the radio with our Tecsun AN-100 AM Loop Antenna. The Tecsun PL365 is the only radio in the Tecsun range apart from the Tecsun S2000 Desktop Radio to provide an external antenna connection for the AM/MW band. Hence our Q3070 Outdoor MW/SW antenna is perfectly suited to this model.
The Tecsun PL365 Radio is an ideal radio to use for AM/MW EMI surveys because of its external AM antenna, ability to accept customised antennas and its display showing signal strength in dBuV.
The Tecsun PL365 provides extended FM coverage down to 76 MHz, allowing the radio to receive broadcasts not intended for the general public. The Tecsun PL365 supports our patented Easy Tune Method (ETM) which is a one touch automatic scan and memorise feature that scans the selected band and stores received signals in a temporary memory allowing for quick selection between stored signals. Available in grey only.
To connect external antennas to the Tecsun PL365 Radio use our 3.5mm to BNC Antenna Adaptor. (SKU P1423)
