CC Skywave SSB

The CC Skywave SSB is the latest travel portable radio by C. Crane company.

The CC Skywave SSB features all of the specifications of the original CC Skywave, but also includes Single Sideband mode (selectable USB/LSB with a fine tune control).

We’ve been testing a pilot production run model of the CC Skywave SSB at the SWLing Post. Once we have a full production run unit, we will post a comprehensive review.

On October 5, 2017, C. Crane posted a pre-order page for the CC Skywave SSB. The price is $169.99 US.
