Sangean ATS 808A Shortwave Radio

This product is no longer available

The Sangean ATS 808A is a very well crafted radio with exceptional AM performance.

It is surprisingly similar to the ATS 909 in performance, however it lacks single-side-band capability (for listening to amateur broadcasts) and a lighted dial.

It has 54 station presets and full clock and sleep timer functions with choice of buzzer or radio alarm.
