Tecsun PL-880

Tecsun PL-880

Fancy tuning into whatever the Central Asian version of Test Match Special turns out to be? Or perhaps you’re in central Asia, and fancy tuning into said Test Match Special? Either way, the Tecsun PL‑880 has you covered.

This portable digital radio can hone in on pretty much any radio band and uses state-of-the-art DSP (digital signal processing) to polish it up to crystal clarity, or thereabouts.

Weighing just 500g and costing just under £170, this compact box of wonders is able to memorise or scan more than 3,000 stations, which will come in handy when England’s next doomed, rear-guard action against supposedly inferior opposition becomes too much to bear.
