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 9 user-selectable IF bandwidth settings 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.* The receiver is equipped with an external antenna socket to allow connection of an external antenna for the Shortwave bands for enhanced reception.
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 version 8820. Available in dark grey. This receiver is the preferred model for communications enthusiasts around the world who require multiple IF bandwidth settings, good battery endurance for portable operation, in a small yet very capable footprint.
Tested endurance in FM mode at moderate volume 29.5 hours on a single charge.
