The TS-990S comes equipped with dual receivers for simultaneous reception on different bands, it also features narrow-band roofing filters on the main receiver in a full down-conversion configuration.

Hi Miryam. I'm not a radio expert or a ham. I was a shortwave listener and experimenter for a lot of years. I've recently returned to it. You don't have to spend $8000. Ham radio and SWL (shortwave listener) can accommodate anyone. The former king of Jordan was a ham as was newsman Walter Cronkite. Listening to news and other programing from stations around the world turns one into kind of a news junkie. It's always interesting and oftentimes I've been posting things I've heard reported several days before our local media were even aware of them. Radio New Zealand International and Radio Australia are two favorites.

"Hi Gary: You are absolutely right. It looks like the picture of the Chaparral has been put in the picture afterwards. You are an experienced photographer, if it were so, would it be called today 'photo shopped'?? "
