I'd call this eton S350DL a 'clown radio' because it is not really a serious radio, but it worked just fine. And it was relaxing not having to worry about it too much since it was so inexpensive (on sale $59.95Cdn).
I had a printed frequency schedule for BBC World Service into Southeast Asia. I was easily able to dial-up the various frequencies and was almost always able to get a very clear signal.

I also found many other interesting shortwave stations from all over Asia, many of which I have not ever heard before.
