Is the Sony ICF-SW10 an ultralight?

It is also slightly bigger to be considered as a 'Small portable' which is here in Europe 500cm3 (30,5 in3) as maximum size. The Sony is 506.013 cm3.

While that radio would be too big for the official awards program, you are welcome to post about it and any loggings from it on here. It is not "technically" an "ultralight", it still fits in this group.

From my maths it works out to be about 31 cubic inches so about 50% too big.
 
What they tell me, the group is okay with any portable radios and the fixed rule on the size is for the awards they issues. I know nothing about they or how they work. Good bunch on the group and I hope to be more active in the future.

We are cleaning out our house getting ready to move.

I found an old Sony ICF-SW10 12 band radio.  The tuning knob was missing but a small plastic
plug just happens to fit into the location.

It's dimensions (w/h/d) are:  Approx: 162 x 93.8 x 33.3 mm                                   
                                              6 1/2 x 3 3/4 x 1 5/16 inches
