  • Portable - The communications receiver has a handle and is designed for portability.
  • Digital tuning - This automatically scans for channels that are broadcasting.
  • Antenna jack - A separate antenna jack allows you to attach a larger antenna.
  • LCD - A liquid crystal display shows the band, mode, and channel.
  • Backlit display - The display is lit from behind with an incandescent bulb.
How do you choose a ham or amateur communications receiver?
