Very Impressed, this a fine radio. It has a bit of a steep learning curve, but it's intuitive and a performer.
I was impressed with the AIR band, but this maybe due to my proximity to the airport.

Shortwave listening was quite good, but there is a lot of empty space, due probably to the reduction in broadcasting.

I haven't had much success in SSB, though I could listen to a signal today, that could be from Georgia (2400 kms) I think I need more practice with SSB.

Just added a PL-660 to my small collection of SW radios for when I travel. My Sony ICF-2010 is just too big to pack and I haven't modified my ATS-909X yet to improve its performance on the whip. This fills the bill nicely.
