Tecsun PL-600 Digital All-wave Portable Receiver


An important advantage of the Tecsun PL 600 radio receiver is the ability to flexibly configure the device for your purposes using special codes. If, for example, you do not need the air band or long waves, these bands can be excluded. The FM range can be narrowed or, conversely, expanded. There are a lot of codes for managing initial settings and they allow you to make a convenient configuration for each user.



The Tecsun PL 600 digital all-wave radio receiver operates on all broadcast bands: long, medium, short and ultrashort waves. A distinctive feature of the model is the ability to receive amateur radio stations in single-band mode (SSB) or telegraph (CW). The Tecsun PL 600 radio receiver, according to the scheme, is a superheterodyne with a digital synthesizer, two frequency conversions and digital signal processing (DSP). Useful features of the model include airband reception (an undocumented option, activated by entering the code “03”). However, the sensitivity of the receiver allows you to listen to stations in the airband only near the airport.

  • The digital synthesizer provides frequency stability, its tuning accuracy and the choice of tuning step.
  • The choice of reception bandwidth has two gradations: Wide or Narrow. A narrow band is used to reduce interference from a powerful radio station that is closely spaced in frequency.
  • Tecsun PL 600 receives any broadcasting bands: long, medium, short and ultrashort waves (LW/MW/SW/FM).
  • Switchable tuning step (9 kHz or 10 kHz) on short waves in AM modulation mode allows you to search for radio stations broadcasting in the European or American frequency grid.
  • Switching the sensitivity level is used to receive far (DX), near (Normal) or local (Local) stations.
  • The reception of SSB (Single Side Band) modulation allows you to listen to amateur radio or service radio stations on short waves.
