Thanko Raremono: the World’S First USB Shortwave Radio?

 |  |  |  |  |  |  December 15, 2009


Thanko has just released what they claim is the world’s first USB shortwave radio, which also picks up AM and FM radio waves. It’s a neat-looking device that simply plugs into your computer.

If you’ve ever wanted to listen to shortwave radio on your computer or laptop, this is the device to use. For a shortwave radio solution, Raremono looks pretty good. It uses some minimalist design, which is always good in my book. Surfing the radio frequencies has never been easier!

The included software allows you to save audio in either MP3 or WAV file format onto your computer’s hard drive.

It’s available here for ¥3.980 (approx $44.73 USD). For that price, you also get an antenna to pick up the radio waves and the necessary cables to hook everything up.
