C Crane CC Skywave AM, FM, Shortwave, Weather and AirBand Portable Travel Radio




The CC Skywave radio uses the latest in digital chip technology along with our own techniques developed at C. Crane. This new travel radio is a travel essential for two big reasons. The cost of using data on your smart phone overseas is prohibitive for most people and you can listen to airport departure and approach including your pilot to find out what is going on when nobody else knows.

The CC Skywave opens up a marvelous world of radio at home or when traveling. It has an intuitive layout so it is easy to use and has exceptional overall performance. Our customers are calling it the "Ultimate Travel Radio". It has excellent AM reception for such a small portable radio and the ability to reduce signal interference. NOAA weather radio with alert so you can be warned of local weather advisories. Aviation/Airband allows you to listen in on nearby traffic controllers. Excellent sound for such a small speaker. Perfect size for stashing in an interior crevice of any carry on. Clear and pleasing audio for the size. Runs approx. 60-70 hrs. at moderate volume on batteries.

Size 4.75” W x 3” H x 1.1” D, 5.5 oz. without batteries.

I followed the user manual and cannot set the ALARM to wake with beep. The Manual says that the alarm should be set to beep by default but it wakes with the radio instead. How can I switch the alarm to beep?

We apologize for this mistake. To switch the Alarm to beep, press the #5 button once during alarm setup. You will notice that the speaker icon has disappeared from the screen indicating that only beep is set.

Why does the light flash on and off when I turn the radio off?

The Weather Alert is turned on. This is a reminder that the alert feature is on and is working. It is not recommended to leave on frequently when using batteries.
