The Thanko Raremono USB shortwave radio.

I can’t wait to review one of these. It’s a new, inexpensive, computer-controlled shortwave radio by the Japanese company, Thanko. The jury is out about its performance, but it does have the following features:

  • AM, FM and good Shortwave coverage (3,000 kHz-20,000 kHz)
  • Ability to record radio programs live or schedule recordings of future broadcasts.
  • Hooks up to the USB port on your PC and is software controlled
  • Works on Windows XP and Vista

The Thanko Raremono USB Shortwave is available from the Thanko website for $45 US (English translation).

Stay tuned–I plan to review this radio in the near future.
