Kchibo KK-9803

The Kchibo KK-9803 portable analog-style DSP shortwave radio.

The Kchibo KK-9803 is a portable shortwave radio with an analog dial, but DSP tuning inside. Like the recently reviewed Degen DE321 and the Tecsun R-2010, this is basically a digital radio with an analog face. It’s worth noting that Kchibo has produced this model number, the KK-9803, for some years (analog only), but has only recently “enhanced” it with DSP. Be aware that if you buy the KK-9803 and it is not specifically marked as a DSP radio in the description, you will most likely be purchasing the older, analog-only model.
