Sangean ATS 909X

Post by Turkeytop » Mon Feb 12, 2018 9:09 pm

I need another radio like a drunk needs another drink. I already have about 50.

But I'm starting to get the itch again. Been looking at the Sangean ATS 909X.

https://www.universal-radio.com/catalog ... /2909.html

Do any of you have experience with it?

When the evenings are warm here in Florida, like tonight, I like to do my listening outdoors. This one looks like it would be good for that purpose. I would just leave it in Florida all the time.

Just looking at the front controls, does not seem to have any provision for copying SSB or CW transmissions.
Most of the interesting stuff on the HF bands is on SSB and cW, after the deep cuts in the SWBC stations.

From the Sangean site, Features list-
SSB (Single Side Band): USB / LSB 40Hz / Step on Fine Tuning

Just above the letter "F" key in the center area on the photo on Universal Radio's page is an "AM Mode" button. The product page on the actual Sangean site has it labelled as "SSB."

This is getting creepy. I always buy my radios from Universal Radio. Never shop anywhere else.

Today I got an e mail from Amazon, saying "you might be interested in this." There was an ad for a Sangean ATS 909. How did they know I wanted that?

Their price was about $50 better than at Universal Radio. It was tempting, but, in the end, I deccided to support conventional retailing. I ordered from Universal.

My computer won't allow me to open that link. Says it's untrustworthy.

You used this line before... in fact, your last radio purchase, IIRC. I’m too tired to go find it. Ya gotta love a creature of habit.

OK, I'll admit it. I need another drink too.
