Description

The Tecsun PL880 Radio is the newest and most powerful portable radio in the Tecsun range. The Tecsun PL880 Radio offers several features that make it superior to previous models including Digital Signal Processing on the HF band ( in all modes), a quantum leap forward for the reception of weak signals. Further, the Tecsun PL880 Radio offers selectable IF bandwidth and a new long-life lithium ion battery.

The Tecsun PL880 Radio is the culmination of years of research and technology development. All the desirable features of shortwave listening have been combined in a single package. The receiver covers the entire shortwave range (100-29999KHz), Longwave, FM and AM broadcast bands. Receiver sensitivity on HF in the SSB mode is typically less than 1uV. Upper Side Band and Lower Side Band are individually selectable, and there are multiple user-selectable bandwidth settings available for each band.*

Particular attention has been paid to the audio output of this receiver to enhance the listening experience. Apart from bass and treble control, the speaker is driven by a Class AB power amplifier capable of 450mW output. There are also many user adjustable “secret” parameters, to allow users to customise their receiver preferences.

Our Tecsun PL880 Radios are supplied with the latest firmware which is currently the 8820. Available in dark grey.

    I think the PL-880 is a great performer. It’s solidly built, beautiful to look at and its high tech speaker gives unbelievable sound in this size radio. Comparing it overall side-by-side with my PL-660 I find the PL-880 to be a worthwhile upgrade due to its better sound, easy SSB tuning and great reception on all bands. I think it’s a winner!

    I am a licenced amateur radio operator for many years,with a rather large shortwave radio collection. I own the PL-880 for about the year.The PL-880 is the most featured small shortwave radio i ever seen. After learning everything about this radio including the “hidden features”, this radio on shortwave is smoke every small shortwave radios i got in my collection including the Radiolab modified Sangean 909, Grundig 7600, Sony ICF-SW55… etc. This radio has it some “quirks” but for a small portable just phenomenal. It is well built,the tuning ( including fine tuning) is great,the audio quality in Am/FM mode from such a small radio is incredible,and also it is able to handle long wire antennas surprisingly well.Excellent dynamic range for a small portable. Verdict: In the small portable shortwave class, this radio price versus performance is unbeatable at the moment. Love it! 5***** ++ 73 de Lajos VK4 NTZ

    Very happy with my recent purchase of Tecsun PL-880. I have it in my office and quite enjoying listening to the FM radio quietly.

    I occasionally connect it to the wifi speaker through the line out plug for use in my garage, I am not an amateur radio operator the main purpose was to buy a high quality receiver to use in my home and workshop that would be able to cope with a lower quality signal which it does with ease along with that the sound quality and radio controls are superb.

    In summer I will try it outside in the evenings for short wave listening, too cold in the evenings winter time in NZ.

    I would highly recommend the PL-880 to anyone wanting a high quality, timeless portable radio.

    Super clarity , stability on AM/SSB. Unbeatable class AB audio. DX antenna switch means you hear DX without external antenna less about 2 s points but AGC makes it sound louder. Telescopic aerial is longer than cheaper radios – much better. Charging time is shown, was about 6.5 hrs from 1 bar. Can listen while charging. Auto sort your memories into frequency order and delete duplicates. Works on NZ ac mains as plug is identical to australian. Only thing I miss is a a finger groove in tuning knob. If you’re spending hours looking for a sw radio, you can’t beat the audio, its at least 70% efficient with all frequency ( huge range ) speaker.
