I live in The Netherlands, and I have been looking for a portable radio which handles all waves (FM/MW/LW/SW) good enough. During the last few months, I bought quite a few small digitals. It turned out that good LW reception in particular is hard to find. The Sony ICF-SW11 has ended my search: it performs more than well on LW. I'd say it even beats my Sangean ATS-909 on LW reception.
Here in the west of The Netherlands, I can receive all the major LW broadcasters (there aren't that many). BBC4, France Inter, Radio Monaco and RTL France come in in almost perfect listening quality. RTE Ireland comes in fairly well, it's listenable, which isn't always the case on the Sangean. The German stations also come in at sufficient quality.
FM quality is fine for me (I listen mainly to MW/LW/SW), MW reception is also good. During the daytime, I can get all stations that I can reasonably expect (BBC World Service comes in at excellent quality on 648Khz). At night, I get lots of stations on MW. On SW, I managed to receive a station from Cuba this afternoon, which surprised me. The quality wasn't superb, but the station was very easy to identify.
Why 4 stars instead of 5? I kind of miss the direct frequency entry feature, that some of my digitals have. But the excellent LW reception more than compensates this for me.
