a29zuk,
That makes perfect sense, I've just never seen it before. I own quite a few portables, and if it has a dx / local switch it works on the AM Broadcast band, this is the first one where it is as you say left out out of the circuit because of the different antenna ( ferrite ) I've only had the radio 2 days, but I'm finding the Airband is very sensitive for a portable. Usually if it's included, it's subpar ( ccrane skywave ) But I live between 2 airports here in the Tampa Bay area, and I'm getting quite a few signals from aircraft....very happy with this. This radio is a little pricey, and I got it cheap ( 175.99 ) I've seen it as high as 199.95. But it's working well, and I am enjoying it. That's what it's all about.
