The Degen DE1129 is a new portable shortwave radio receiver and MP3 player/recorder. A smaller cousin of the DE1128, the DE1129 has switchable 9/10 kHz steps on the mediumwave band–something that prevented the DE1128 from ever catching on in North America.

We completed an initial look and full review of the DE1129 on the SWLing Post.

Pricing is $80US/each plus shipping from China.
