This analog receiver covers the following radio bands:
FM (88-108 MHz)
AM (525 - 1605 kHz)
MB (1.6 - 3.9 MHz)
SW (3.9 - 30 MHz)
The shortwave bands are split into two segments. SW1 spans 3.9 - 12 MHz. SW2 covers 12 - 30 MHz. Additionally, the CB frequencies are split out (26.8 - 28.4 MHz) and have their own dedicated "bandspread" space on the dial.
Front Panel Controls
It's a pretty basic set up. The speaker dominates the center of the front panel. The upper left section hosts the controls for volume, bass, treble, light, power on-off and a combination signal strength/battery life meter. The light is a momentary switch. The dial light only will illuminate when the switch is pushed down.
The upper right of the front panel features the analog dial which operates vertically. Next to the dial is a switch which functions as an AFC on/off switch for FM and DX/Local on AM-SW. Underneath the dial is a BFO on/off switch, CB on/off bandspread switch and the 5-position band switch.
The left side features three 1/8" jacks: MPX out, Rhythm In/Rec Out and Earphone.
There are three control knobs on the right side: main tuning knob, fine tuning and a 120 minute mechanical timer. The main tuning knob has a short "crank handle" on it that enables the user to tune quickly.
The RF-1150 can be powered by either 4 D-cells or AC (via a removable power cord).
Screw terminals are located on the rear of radio for connecting an external antenna for either FM or AM/SW. A 41" pivoting whip antenna is provided for FM and SW reception. The whip telescopes into the radio. A classic feature of the RF-1150 is the rotating gyro antenna for directional reception in the AM band. Rather than having to rotate the radio around for maximum signal, you simply rotate the gyro antenna on the top of the radio. The gyro antenna folds down which allows for full rotation of the whip.
