SWLing Post reader, Paul, spotted a deal on the RadioShack 20-629; the lowest price I’ve ever seen on a shortwave portable with single sideband (SSB).
Great deal on a radio: Blinq has the RadioShack 20-629, an upgraded re-issue of the previously discontinued Sangean [ATS-505], for sale for only $27 with coupon code WELCOME10:
electronics/portable-am-fm- radios/radio-shack-am-fm- shortwave-radio-with-dual- alarm-clock-2000629/164398? condition=new-open-box
They also have the same radio in their eBay store but of course you can’t use their 10% off coupon there, although you may be able to use your eBay Bucks:
Shack-AM-FM-Shortwave-Radio- with-Dual-Alarm-Clock-2000629- /351107847476
I just received mine and it appears brand new, never used.

Thanks for pointing out this deal and for sharing your experience, Paul! I just purchased one and can confirm that they’re still available. I can’t imagine that this stock will last long.
