The Sony CF-560s: a shortwave favorite in Spain

Sony-CF-560s-2Many thanks to SWLing Post reader, Jesus Leal, for contacting me and sharing photos of his Sony CF-560s shortwave receiver. I have never seen the CF-560s before. I believe the its a relatively rare receiver; indeed, I couldn’t even find one in the completed listings on eBay.

The CF-560s covers AM/FM/SW and has a built-in cassette player/recorder. Being a “boombox” style radio, I imagine the SW filter is wide and, when locked into a strong station, provides rich audio.

Mr. Leal, who lives in the La Mancha region of Spain, uses the Sony CF-560s for regular shortwave listening but also has a Grundig/Eton Satellit 750 in his radio arsenal.

    As a radio lover.. I found this in a Bollywood song. Just the packaging was visible in the background. I looked up online and now discovered this blog.

    Name of the song: lakdi ki Kathi..
    The song features 3 children playing and singing.

    Saquib – VU3HZW

    The antenna is broken AON i need to fix that before I can try an tune in to any SW station
    The cassette deck doesn’t work but I’ll try and fix that
