Very impressive pricing; about $80 while kaitousa.com lists the KA1121 for $199.

That's a lot of capability for the price - $79.90 vs $49.90 for the
DE1103. It's sort of a DE1103 with a docking MP3 recorder/player and
then some! Computer loadable frequency memories, LW and Weather
bands (Kaito model only), 1 & 5 kHz steps on SW, a third attenuator
setting and powered
speaker for external sources are obvious extras. Missing is coverage
of the upper MW 1.7-3 MHz.

Looks like the LCD screen of the MP3 module is shared with the radio
but literature says the radio and MP3 can work independently.

Time for somebody to start a KA1121 / DE1121 group!

The European model from Thieking and Koch has something different, too,
I believe:
http://www.thiecom.de/thieking/de1121/index.htm in German
English translation:
http://translate.google.com/translat...language_tools
Most obvious is no gap coverage from 50kHz to 30MHz.

Hmmm - quite the spread in prices...

Degen DE1121 China model from tquchina ebay seller: US$79.90 + $24
shipping to Canada
Kaito KA1121 US model: US$$199.99 + shipping
Thieking DE1121 German model: Euro219,00 + shipping (~US$$290 maybe
less w/o VAT)

What are the differences? According to adverts:

Frequencies:
China model:
FM: 70.0MHz - 108.0MHz (step is 50KHz/100KHz)
MW & LW: 150KHz - 1640KHz (step is 1KHz/9KHz)
SW: 3000KHz - 29999KHz (step is 1KHz/5KHz)

US model:
1. AM: 140 Khz -520Khz ( Long Wave), 520 KHz- 1710Khz ( MW)
2. FM Stereo: 70Mhz- 88.0Mhz ( Low FM), 88.00Mhz - 108 MHz( Upper FM)
3. SW: 3000 KHz - 29,999 KHz
6. NOAA Weather Band : Channel 1 - Channel 7.

German model:
Long wave: 50 kHz - 521 kHz!
Medium wave: 522 - 1719 kHz
Short wave: 1700 kHz - 29.999 MHz
UKW: 70 - 108 MHz
menus in German

The models are likely identical hardware with different firmware
versions so I wonder if the China model can be:
a) tuned by keypad into the extended LW, MW, SW and NOAA ranges of
the others
b) firmware upgraded by the software for one of the other models (eg -
the thiecom site has their software)

Hopefully that auction includes a misprint. Otherwise it makes no
sense for someone in the U.S. to buy a radio that doesn't tune the MW
band in 1 and 10khz steps up to 1710 khz. Has anyone asked the seller
if there is a setting to allow full coverage? The DE1103 includes the
correct coverage for USA so I'm sure Degen is aware of the issue. I
wonder if this isn't a limitation created to satisfy Kaito USA.
