Able to set an alarm and wake to last radio station listened to.
Small enough to sit on top of our sliding shower doors if I want to listen while getting ready for work.
Buttons and tuning dial feel to be nice quality.
Clear display with easy to read clock. Discovered at night I can reach over to it and touch any button on the front and the display will light up temporarily to show me the time. Nice touch.
Includes a 21' reel antenna to help pull in SW and SSB.
Does not include batteries. I recommend using rechargeable Duracell AA batteries as I'm having good luck with them and they seem to last a long time in the radio. I do not recommend connecting the radio to any power supply via USB cable as that introduces noise on the radio. Even the C.Crane power supply introduces a very small amount of noise unless the station is very strong. I recommend just using batteries only and have a spare pair charged and ready to swap when needed.
The included headphones sound better to me than a pair of iPhone headphones I tried with it. I mostly just use the built in speaker and play the radio out loud which works well for me.

The scanning functions on the Skywave units are ideal for small, relatively inexpensive receivers, and I can enthusiastically recommend them!
3.5 out of 5 objectively. Pricey where is air traffic does not add much value but bumps up the price. I was also not able to get SW reception in Calgary - not a single channel (but it is the same with any other radio too; weather reception is very poor but same as other radios, perhaps it is Calgary).
Also check to see if the product was used - mine had finger prints and minor scratches.
A jack for an external antenna would be of great help for dxers like me.
