SONY Japan declared in January that they ended the production of ICF-SW35 shortwave receiver. They also declared in February that they end the sales of another shortwave receiver ICF-7600GR at their online store.
ICF-SW35 has been on sale since 2000, ICF-7600GR since 2001. This means SONY will completely withdraw from the shortwave receiver market.
Remaining SONY shortwave receivers are ICF-EX5MK2 and ICF-M780N, both are exclusively for the reception of Radio Nikkei, tunable to only 6 fixed shortwave frequencies of Radio Nikkei, Japan. (Takahito Akabayashi, Tokyo, Japan via WOR ml)
