Essential Info

For radio enthusiasts, the CCRadio AM/FM/Shortwave Portable Radio offers the best sensitivity, selectivity and audio performance of any radio at this price and size. It has a built in Twin Coil Ferrite AM Antenna that brings out the best AM reception and sound available. The whip antenna delivers quality FM. AM, SW1, SW2 and SW3 performance. This radio not only receives weaker signals, with superior audio, than perhaps any portable radio ever made, but you are given much more control over how the radio works, sounds, and picks up a signal. Moving from band to band and searching for stations has been made easy with simple buttons, dials, and a large lighted LCD screen display. A single five inch speaker offers clear tones and bass. There is an RCA line out for connecting the radio to a stereo system and an additional IF out to send a digital signal to a computer for decoding. Choose to wake to an alarm or the radio, or hit the snooze button for a few more minutes of sleep. A durable build and sturdy handle ensure that this radio will last for years to come. Enjoy great sound while on the road, camping, boating, or anywhere else you go.

If not using the AC Power adapter, this product requires the use of four D batteries or four AA batteries, each sold separately, which will power the radio for up to 70 continuous hours. Optionally you can purchase NiMH (Nickel-Metal-Hydride) batteries and a built in charging circuit will re-charge them when the radio is plugged in.

    Twin Coil Ferrite AM Antenna
    If you have a favorite AM radio station, but experience poor reception, the Twin Coil Ferrite AM Antenna may be just what you're looking for. This patented AM antenna doubles daytime reception, dramatically reduces nighttime fade out, and can even eliminate heavy static and distortion - it's a radio accelerator!

    SW Band
    Different SW Bands work better at different times of the day, year and even solar cycle. The short-wave receiver-quality reception of AM radio stations is strong enough up to pick up reception up to 500 miles away.

    Excellent product enjoying every moment of am and fm but most of all the SW please keep me informed of all new products coming out. Thanks Michael Fletcher

    Excellent reception, good feature set. Easily able to listen to foreign news broadcasts.
    MARIANN -- st joseph, MI   12/27/2011
    I purchased this radio as a Christmas present for my husband. He's having a blast with it. He's thoroughly enamored with the variety of stations it can receive from all over the world and the functionality of the radio. I would highly recommend the radio based on his enjoyment of it. I purchased it based on a review that compared this to the GE Super Radio. That review was extremely well written and explained this radio in great detail.
    JAMES V -- gresham, OR   12/9/2011
    So far, no complaints. It performs in the manner I had expected, from the selectivity to the sound.
    JOANN -- stockton, CA   5/23/2011
    The first radio I received didn't work very good, the FM station had a lot of static. I called customer service and they were more than happy to exchange the item. The exchange was very easy. This radio is easy to use and comes in well for a portable.
    CHARLES -- walpole, MA   3/26/2011
    Well-designed controls: Vernier dial, RF Gain, scanning, etc. Set is absolutely worthless without an external antenna, however. Best for the money.
    SHERRILL -- atlanta, GA   3/13/2011
    So far, so good. I love the radio.
    LINDA -- lancaster, CA   8/8/2010
    I am very pleased with the service of SMARTHOME & my product.
    STEVE -- sharpsburg, MD   5/7/2010
    Nicest piece of electronics that I have ever owned.
    ROGER -- lakeville, MN   4/26/2010
    it is a wonderful radio. i am happy with it in all respects.
    STEVE -- sharpsburg, MD   3/6/2010
    I don't know that I've ever owned a radio that is so well built, sensitive to weak signals, and so loaded with features. This is everything it claims to be and more.
    WILLIAM -- milford, DE   1/4/2010
    I just wanted a good all around am/fm radio for my woodshop. It's got lots of fancy Shortwave gizmotrons with it, but doesn't seem to have any better reception from the distant clear channel 50,000 Watt radio stations than my $18.00 Sony portable AM/FM radio. Nice looking though. Looks like something you would see in an airport control tower. Well constructed and if that's important to you then this radio would be a nice purchase. I'm hoping this unit last as long as the Sony radio has. It's 12 years old and still alive... somewhat.
    JOHN -- sunnyvale, CA   1/9/2009
    I am a little disappointed in the receiver, which I expected to be tops. I am still having problems receiving a SF radio station on this unit, which ironically advertises the receptive power of the CC radio. It's got plenty of bells & whistles but it's quite average in its reception.
    BRADLEY A GARRI -- port ludlow, WA   10/13/2008
    I have enjoyed the sw radio.vey nice condition and clarity.
    MARIO -- north miami, FL   10/7/2008
    Radio looks better on picture. Perfomance is not as good as advertised.
