A while back this thread was open, I just came across some info, The 2012 range of Pioneer car Audio includes 5 models which have Shortwave, including the 2.3 MHz coverage of ABC domestic service.

Really need to start lobbying Pioneer to produce radios capable of DRM (think of it as 'digital AM') which ABC is ramping up with new transmitters next month.

I went down to the local Repco and tried it. yes the model sold in NZ covers the frequencies specified on the website. there is a mistake in the catalogue on one of the models, with a correction sheet attached. i did my best to check everything out, but Repco dont have an aerial connected to their car radios demo stand, [insert aussie/kiwi joke here] I just got noise on all bands. In shop demo mode, they will not step tune to a frequency, however the manual says to change the mode 'seek' to be 'MAN' and step up/dn tuning will be working. I find the controls a bit fiddly to understand, but all toy radios are like that now. Wish I could get a KE-8700, proper knobs and all.

A survey of all the brands around here shows only Pioneer have SW sets anymore.
Nothing from Philips, Blaupunkt, Sony, JVC.

Ralph.
Thanks for that, We are radio national listeners and get frustrated by the lack of coverage in the centre. Eric
