Digital shortwave general purpose, 4 -band shortwave receiver
GP-5 SSB radio is made based on a continued request for a excellent quality general purpose information radio. Remember, always have a radio and be prepared, we are living in changing times.
We are pleased to announce the GP-5/SSB radio with excellent HF communications monitoring in a unique hand held form factor and at a great price. The radio covers medium wave 520-1710 kHz shortwave 2300-30000 kHz and the FM band. Unlike most radios in this price category, the GP-5/SSB provides LSB and USB single sideband reception. It has a very unique Easy Tuning Mode (ETM). ETM does more the usual ATS. It scans all frequencies without taking up the memory spaces. So you get quick access to all local stations. Great for the traveler. There are also 450 regular memories (100 AM, 100 FM and 250 shortwave) available for tuning into your favorite stations. Another unique feature of the radio is its removable high sensitivity external AM ferrite antenna. This directional antenna clearly enhances AM band reception. The GP-5/SSB even employs DSP (Digital Signal Processing) technology, improving clarity and tone quality. There is even an adjustable sleep timer.
This radio has been completely redesigned by our engineers and the the factory to be a important part of both your survival kit and your fun kit. The performance of this radio surpasses radios costing 2-3 times more.

The Sangean ANT-60 portable roll-up shortwave antenna will improve the reception of any portable worldband receiver. The antenna wire may be extended up to 23 feet (7 m).
The ANT-60 terminates with a mini-plug (3.5 mm).
If your receiver does not have a mini external antenna jack, an adapter plug is provided to clip the ANT-60 to your radio's whip.
The spool has a clip which allows the placement of the antenna high, and in clear view, to give you the clearest reception.
