Notes The Sony Air-8 was listed in the Sporty's catalog for purchase as late as 1996. The "AIR-8" ranges 150-2194 kHz, 76-108 MHz, 108-137 MHz (Air band), 144-174 MHz, AM/FM, memory- and band-scanning.

Note from (guest) Herbert Green, Baltimore (USA): The Air band frequency coverage listed, (108-137 MHz) range is only applicable to models which carried the unofficial designation of Air-8A. This later version appeared in the Sporty's catalog I believe at some point in the 1990s. These models featured 6-digit serial numbers compared to the 5-digit serial numbers of the original Air-8s which featured Air band coverage from 108-136 MHz.

After requesting a photo deletion from Air 8, the model page is now correct, but in my model collection the photo is still there, and the picture sorting is frozen in one position only.Could you please solve the problem?I have also indicated that is more than one year a zzz-trash1 tube is present in my tube collection.I have been told that periodically all the trashes are finally deleted, no mention on how long this period is.Thanks for any help.

You can fix this on your Collection page. I sent you an email
