ICF-PRO80 form like radio, I was just out of curiosity from the flea market to buy it. This model is the PRO Series (ICF-PRO60/PRO70/PRO80) the latest model, but 88 years since the launch of a year is not produced. Since this machine is a SONY professional models, little information online, even SONY have their own professional maintenance department of a professional machine because refuse service without drawings, hateful SONY.

    As the old machine, the back of the battery box is lost, just looking for a common market, box-to four AA batteries can be used temporarily. Of course, the right machine can also be measured using an external power outlet to find a 6V 500mA AC adapter is the same effect. After a period of actual use I found that this machine is power, use the four alkaline batteries to listen to three hours a day can be maintained for six weeks actually, really professional!

    And many radios as the primary key in the front of the machine. TNC antenna on the side of the mouth, the volume knob, SQL knob, 4 * 10 storage units and SONY unique FINE knob knob, power switch. Left and right side have a strap button. The front upper part of the LCD (thin and small), the lower part is 2W speaker, occupies the largest area of ​​the 20 large multi-function key. Since the machine is too thick, too wide, I can not operate all the buttons with one hand, both hands really awkward. But once the power is turned on, its operation is fairly simple. As long as you use the front 10 numeric keys and press EXECUTE key direct input frequency, FM, NFM, AM it automatically selected, AM is automatically set to NARROW, these operations can be simplified so that ordinary. Further action will find it different as a professional machine, with the ICOM IC-R10, as this machine has FULL SCAN, MEMORY SCAN, PROGRAM SCAN, PRIORITY WATCH, but its priority functions are very different with the R10, R10 is every 5 seconds by the Jump PRIORITY frequency signal frequency did not return, and PRO80 PRIORITY when setting the display marked surface only, and does not affect the other programs I listen to, until a signal it will automatically PRIORITY jump to let you listen to. I believe that these features introduced after a similar product in the SONY ICF-SC1, ICF-SC1PC should also be fully retained.

    This machine is very impressive, or its short-wave reception, which can be used you can find the common good to listen to shortwave antenna TNC (including SSB), It is strange that even if I find another short TNC antenna, it effect of short-wave listening also make me satisfied. Although there are headphone jack, I prefer to use the loudspeaker to listen to shortwave programming, because the reduction of its voice clear, bright, strong sense of transmission, it is easy to make me ignore the short-wavelength background interference noise, 2W of powerful sound but will also make my day listen to a noisy environment, but FM radio sound reduction is too high, not very satisfied.

As a short-wave radio ICF-PRO80, or to my satisfaction, not to mention its groove back the battery compartment can make this machine SHIFT switch frequency range widened to listen to 274MHz, but effects badly (air waves with the ICF-2001D receiver sensitivity as bad , 150MHz also, 29MHz also had to go). Hope its follow-up of similar products ICF-SC1/SC1PC better, see if you can consider to buy when playing.
