I had an older version(1998) and it was very good....I had it attached by velcro to the inside of my UPS truck above the driver door til I retired in 2010!! This new model has added features that make it so good, I almost un-retired (never). I feel that no one can find a better radio, especially, at the price!! I do not use the short wave yet, but am sure it must be every bit as good as the AM/FM bands.
