I'm planning to order a SW portable set kept for emergency use (among ordinary receivers) OTHER THAN receivers with dynamos; I will also several sets of fresh dry batteries.
I have several SW receivers, so I won't use the new set for DXing.
My concerns are:
- Durability / Reliability
- Battery running time
- SW bands are wide enough.
Candidates are Tecsun R9702, R911, and DR920.
I think the DR920 will be better since the set has a digital readout and a back-lit light. The concern is that the DR920's battery running time will be as long as that of the R911/R9702 and I doubt that SW bands might be narrower.
I want to know its defacto SW band coverage rather than "specification-stated" SW band coverage.
