Great deal: $27 RadioShack shortwave portable with SSB


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).

Paul writes:

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:

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:

I just received mine and it appears brand new, never used.

Discussion on the radio:

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.

Spread the radio love

    I have two Realistic DX-398 (Sangean’s ATS-909 for Radio Shack) portables & they are the best for me. I’ve tried many throughout the years starting with the DX-440/ATX-803(a) receivers moving through Grundig, Sony & Tecsun and have finalized on the DX-398/ATS-909. For $50 to $60 each, used, you can snag one of these portables and have great performance for a very small investment.
