From the Manufacturer
The Sangean ATS-909X is the flagship of the Sangean line of AM/FM/SW Portable Radios. It provides performance and features generally found in more expensive table top communication receivers and combines it all into a very compact and stylish package. Coverage includes all long wave, medium wave, short wave, and AM and FM stereo frequencies. (FM Stereo through headphone jack) It's a clear step up from Sangean's previous ATS-909 model in terms of construction, output power, and signal range.
Compared to the previous ATS-909 model, the ATS-909X boasts a larger LCD with a brighter backlight for easier reading. With over three times the output power of the ATS-909 (1W vs. 0.3W) and a more rigid cabinet, the ATS-909X offers superior sound quality and reliability. An additional AM RF preamplifier, DSP decode IC, and a longer telescopic antenna compared to the ATS-909 enhances the short-wave reception for improved signal fidelity. A "Squelch" setting allows you to set the sensitivity rating for radio reception, rejecting residual noise and reducing scans to faulty stations. And all these features of the ATS-909X come in a package that's smaller than the original.
The ATS-909X features a rechargeable battery and an LED light that indicates the charging status.
Multiple Tuning Methods
Short wave performance is enhanced with a wide-narrow bandwidth switch and selectable upper and lower single side band performance (SSB tuning to 40 Hz steps). Five tuning methods are featured: direct keypad entry, manual tuning, auto scan, manual up-down tuning, and memory recall.
406 Total Presets
The alpha-numeric memory system lets you store 406 presets (351 short wave, 18 AM, 27 FM and 9 long wave plus 1 priority). Three programmable wake timers are available. The clock displays even when the radio is tuning and has 42 world city times stored. The large LCD display also features a signal strength and battery life indicator. The ATS-909X will also display RDS - PS, PTY, RT and CT for station name and clock time in areas where service is available.
Listen via Speaker or Headphones with Tone Control
The built-in 3" speaker lets you conveniently listen anywhere, and is great for a small room or office environment. You can also listen to the ATS-909X using the 3.5mm headphone jack and the included earbuds. While you're listening to your favorite radio programming and information via speaker or earphones, customize your listening experience with a sliding tone control.
Line-In for Other Sources
An AUX input allows you to connect other sources to the ATS-909X for playback via the built-in speaker or included earbuds.
The Sangean ATS-909X offers an alarm function with 3 timers for Snooze and Sleep features. Wake up to a conventional buzzer or one of your favorite radio presets. There's even a nap timer to catch a brief nap during the day.
In addition to the ADPATS-808 6V DC Adapter, the ATS-909X also includes a ANT-60 shortwave antenna, carrying pouch, and earbuds.

Top Customer Reviews
that after a new model is relaesed that the mfr will quietly make engineering evaluations and upgrades based on the first field reports, and never make public the changes, so I will assume that the early reports were based on the Beta radios.
My first impression of the 909X out of the box was that the build quality was very good, with a nice feel in my hands. The first order of business was to read the English portion of the operation manual, then after installing 4 AA alkaline cells and setting the battery charge switch to the correct setting it was time to power up and "walk through" the functions. After I verified the 909X was 100% it was time to put it through it's paces.
My first interest is AM MW DXing, so I tuned the 909X to 1360,and proceeded to pick up KWDJ operating with only 1000 Watts 100 miles away. At my location I am 2 miles from KOSS 1380 with 1000 watts. Picking up the signal from KWDJ 1360 100 Miles away with a measured field strength of only 400 Microvolts and with a 60 Millivolt signal only 2 channels away is quite a chore for any radio, the 909X with it's DSP IF amp easily seperated the two signals with no problems and no bleed-over.
Another challenge was on low end of the AM dial. KMJ 580 from Fresno,200 Miles away
has a measured filed strength at my location of 350 Microvolts and KAVL 610 2 Miles from me operates with 5000 Watts and has a measured Field strength of 100 Millivolts.Read more ›

I bought this direct from Taipei because of detailed and impressive advance notice, though the price here is now far better. Okay, that information was PR, but in the case of this complete re-design of the ATS-909 it was pretty close to how the product performs.
I've used a variety of portables over the years, including the brilliant, but rather heavy, Sony ICF-2010, and its successor, the fine 7600GR. I've also tried a few of the new Chinese shortwave competitors, including the Degen 1103, probably the best cheap shortwave radio ever made.
Sangean, however, is not competing against Degen or Kaito. Established for a very long time as a maker of superb portables, they took some heat for the ATS-909. I can't comment on that model, as I have never tried one.Read more ›
