It doesn’t look like much, but Thanko just launched its first USB shortwave radio for the masses. The radio is capable of receiving both AM and FM radio signals and you can plug the device into your computer. You’ll need to install software into your computer before you can use it though.
It will also let you record and save programs in MP3 or WAV format. So if you’re looking for a shortwave radio, Thanko’s USB shortwave radio retails for $44.73.
