ICF - SW22
überarbeitet am 30.10.2010
Sony's ICF-SW22 has a very similar appearence as the ICF-SW15,
but it looks, as if it had shrunk in the hot washtub - the cabinet and every control
is reduced in size another step...
The Sony ICF-SW22 is powered by two UM-3 / AA batteries.
The left part of the receiver front is taken by the speaker.
Most of the right half is taken by the dial window with it's vertical frequency
dials of the spread 49, 41, 31, 25, 19, 16 and 13 m shortwave bands, the dials for
mediumwaves and the FM broadcast band are located further right, the dial
pointer can be seen through a small slot.
Operating the ICF-SW22 is absolutely easy: press the SW button to switch
the radio on and to select the shortwave range, then use the sliding switch to select
the desired shortwave band, position number 1 stands for the 49 m band, the
selected band in indicated by a tiny mechanically moved indicator just above
the frequency dial. Try to locate the desired frequency on the corresponding bandspread dial,
this might not be an easy task as channel spacing between the dial marks
is 100 kHz.
