    The CC Skywave is more than double the price of the Tecsun PL-310ET. The two radios appear to have similar features and performance. Can anyone suggest a reason why one would want to pay the extra charge for a Skywave?

      Thanks for your question, Joe. I’m asked this a lot by readers.

      The Tecsun PL-310ET is (and has been for years) the best budget shortwave portable out there. You really can’t go wrong with it

      The CC Skywave, in my opinion, has a few advantages:
      – An excellent NOAA weather radio receiver (for folks in North America)
      – The AIR band which is fun and useful addition if you’re flying or travelling by air
      – I prefer the Skywave over the PL-310ET on the mediumwave band. Its selectivity and AGC, in my opinion, have a distinct edge over the 310ET for MW DXing.

      Because of these particular advantages, the Skywave has become my travel portable of choice when SSB reception isn’t a priority.

      You might check out the CC Skywave review because I tried to include reception recordings which I felt represented both radios fairly:

      In short, though? If I didn’t care about the AIR band or NOAA weather radio, I’d be quite happy with the PL-310ET. You really can’t go wrong either way.

      Just my thoughts.
