The P50 is small enough to slip into a pocket and carry around. Even so, its dial scale and luminous pointer make it easy to see, even in the dark, and a new digital tuner enables simple and stable tuning.
The new Digital Tuner achieves simple tuning and stable reception. The
Auto Frequency Control (AFC) function expands the AM radio reception
range and simplifies tuning. It eliminates the need for exact tuning
precision by automatically selecting the nearest station. Noise is also
reduced* while tuning to enhance listening comfort.
*Noise is not reduced from the sounds received.
Large Dial Scale
In addition to the Large Dial Scale, which makes the frequency numbers
larger and easier to see, a Fluorescent Pointer provides comfortable viewing
in the dark. Tuning is easy even at night and during power interruptions.
