Sangean ATS-909x on eBay
For those who might be interested there is a black version of the 909X on eBay with an auction end day of Monday early afternoon. The condition looks good from the pics (of course buyer beware!) and current bid is $127.50 with two bidders. I have one of the white series which bought several years ago from another ham right at this price, so needless to say I was happy (and lucky!)

SWLing Post reader, Tom, updates us regarding the price of the Sangean 909X on Amazon–it has dropped again.
The price is now $157.56 if purchased directly from Amazon and $154.40 if purchased by one of their third party vendors:

Just thought I would tell you that at the moment I am seeing the White Sangean 909X Shortwave radio on sale from Amazon for $163.81 at the moment.
Says on the page it is 64% off which is the cheapest I have seen it so far and it ships from Amazon and not a 3rd party.
Many thanks, Tom! I believe that is the lowest price for a 909X I’ve ever seen.
Ironically, the price of the Tecsun PL-880 has been climbing on Amazon (currently $179.99) and the PL-660 price is back to $129.99 (up $30 from November pricing).
Note that I could not advise purchasing the PL-880 from Amazon at the moment as it appears that they have a stock of older firmware version radios (
see previous post).
