The Tecsun R-2010 is a new (unreleased) analog portable receiver and the first to use the new Silicon Labs’ Si4831 AM/FM receiver ICs. The R-2010 is a 12-band, analog (i.e. wheel-tuned) DSP radio, which offers FM stereo, medium-wave (MW) and shortwave (SW) reception.
Update: Reliable sources have told me that Tecsun may be re-designing the R-2010 with a digital display. This is unconfirmed as there are no prototypes or designs available, however, this could be a very good response to feedback from other DSP analog radios like the Degen DE321(namely, that digital tuning is precise, but the analog display is vague). This may also explain why the R-2010 has not been released even though Tecsun has had it in the works for almost a full year. I wonder if the new model would implement the Silicon Labs Si484x chipset (thanks, Mike!).
The Tecsun R-2010 has not yet hit the market at time of this posting, but we will update this page and review the receiver once available.
The SW Index now participates in two affiliate advertising programs with two large retailers that still sell shortwave radios, the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program and the eBay Partnership, designed to provide a means for sites like ours to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to these retailers of radio products. Many of our links now function as affiliate links. This means that by clicking on these links, a small percentage of the purchase price for goods you purchase from these sellers will help support our site’s running costs. We hope you understand, and are grateful for your support.
But please note that we will never create a post and product link explicitly to receive a commission. Additionally, we always try to include links to other retail options if they are available, as we support and freely advertise independent ham radio retailers. Thank you, too, for your support of these sites and for making the initial suggestion of joining affiliate programs program. It has been providing a nice supplement for our running costs.
