This wonderful SSB detection capability also has a very finely controlled, center detent adjustment, BFO (beat frequency oscillator) knob in the center of the left hand side of the radio between the volume control knob and the tuning control knob. There are also numerous ways of tuning the radio using a direct entry keypad, separate digital up/down scanning keys, etc.

3) A complete set of system codes is available through a dedicated key for rapidly setting all possible system selection choices (number of preset pages with number of presets per page of memory, type of batteries being used, regular or rechargeable, 9 or 10 KHZ step size depending on the geographic location of the listener, etc.Read more ›
So I became interested in these types of radios almost two months ago. I read many a reviews and countless youtube video's of these types of shortwave radios receiving broadcasts of music, news, data (like rtty or psk31 etc), as well as hams that are conversing with one another. So after much decision I opted for this radio.
Before I received this radio I was expecting three things. 1) it was going to be large 2)it was going to be light, 3) it was going to be some hallow feeling cheap plastic box. Well to my surprise, it was practically the opposite. Its a lot smaller then I thought, which is a good thing for me. It was also much heftier then I imagined it would be, which again is a good thing for me. I dislike anything electronic similar to this that feels suuuuper light. And finally it seems really well built. I've held a Grundig G8 / Eton Traveler II at a local Radio Shack. And this Tecsun radio does NOT have that rubbery feel to it. But! It is well constructed. All the buttons work on my unit out of the box, and they all feel the same when pressed.Read more ›
With it's great FM reception I could hear stations I didn't know they exist. Some of they are from far away from my city.
SW is very good too. I can hear many stations when I'm in my kitchen, living room or bedroom at night. All this just with the whip antenna (and my house is heavily surrounded by tall buildings).
AM is good too, with it's internal antenna catches lots of stations, but I can't confirm it catches all of them as I don't hear AM that much.
Tecsun PL-600 has two wake up alarms: a buzz or a radio station can be used.
700 memories are divided in 10 pages with a maximum of 50 per page. As I told, this unit's FM reception is great and it has cought 54 radio stations! so the memory page fell a little short to store all of them :)
The wall adapter is very very good with no noises in any band! this impressed me a lot since i've had problems with my other portables and that horrible noise that bleeded all over the place and I had to use batteries all the time for that reason. Very good Tecsun!
The sound through the speaker is a little muddy for FM listening. Actualy it can be best described as 'flat' no rich basses or highs, but if you use headphones then it sound incredible & in stereo.
Other reviewers have said that the buttons are flat but mine are not and are easy to feel with the fingertips. I wish the buttons were backlighted to easily work with them in the dark...
Since SW was my main motivation to buy this portable and it performs really well, I give it 4.5 stars. Half star less because of the FM sound and the lack of backlighted buttons.
