eBay find: Sony CDX-GT260S car shortwave radio

I still receive a surprising amount of questions about mobile (car/in-dash) shortwave receivers. We have a dedicated category to all things mobile shortwave but it is certainly a radio category with comparatively few options.

One option to consider is the BST-1: a receiver I reviewed two years ago.

And then occasionally car receivers pop up on eBay, like this Sony CDX-GT260S:

The Sony CDX-GT260S requires installation, but shouldn’t be overly complicated to install especially in older vehicles.

The seller actually posted the following video of the Sony CDX-GT260S in use:

Post readers: Anyone listen to shortwave in the car?  What’s your receiver of choice?

    I take my battery receivers such as my SONY ICF-2010 and Tecsun PL-660 or 880. Sometimes my HAM gear goes and all the times I have two meters and 70 cm. My Kenwood F6A goes along and it has all mode HF receive. But no in dash like the SONYCDX.

    I have a Blaupunkt MP76 receiver in my vehicle and it has a shortwave band that received just between 5800-6200 khz. The problem with it is that the vehicle (a 2001 Chevy Blazer) generates too much RF interference for it to be listenable except on some nights when reception is very strong.
