  • Notes
  • Sony ICF-2001D: Double conversion portable multiband radio, coverage 150 - 30000 kHz, FM 76 - 108 MHz, additional AIR band 116 - 136 MHz AM; AM, SSB (USB, LSB, ECSS-Sync), digital frequency readout, frequency keypad entry, 32 memories, clock.

    Internationally, different variants were sold:

    • Version 1 (standard / international): frequency coverage 150 - 29999 kHz, 76 - 108 MHz and Air Band 116 - 136 MHz; SSB reception, external antenna jack
    • Version 2 (Germany / Deutschland FTZ): frequency coverage 150 - 26100 kHz, 87.5 - 108 MHz, no Air Band; SSB reception, external antenna jack
    • Version 3 (Italy ?): frequency coverage 150 - 285 and 530 - 26100 kHz, 87.5 - 108 MHz, no Air Band; no SSB reception or external antenna connector

    On pictures, you can recognize the sets without Air band coverage, as they have only two white - grey push buttons AM / FM below the clock display, and not three.


    Radio part uses 3 x D cells (4.5V) but under them are 2 x AA cells for the Microprocessor/Clock/Memory (labelled "computer supply").


    A rotary encoder tunes "fast or slow" or can be locked off. It's also used to increment and decrement the clock and multiple alarms. Each of the four alarms can have a duration (0, 15, 30, 60 minutes) and radio memory. The tape socket has a DC signal to initiate timer recordings.

    Matching power supply is Sony AC-140W (blue label, 4.5 V rated, different voltages)

    Similar U.S. model is the Sony ICF-2010 with a slightly different power supply.

Hallo, liebes Forum!

Bei meinem ICF-2001D besteht das Problem, dass der Schieberegler für die Lautstärke mittlerweile stark kracht. Selbiges Problem habe ich auch beim kleinen Bruder ICF-7600D. Gibt es eine Möglichkeit, diesen nachhaltig zu restaurieren (also nicht Kontaktspray 'reinknallen)? Falls nicht: Kann man diesen Regler heute noch kaufen?

Über eine Info würde ich mich freuen!

Viele Grüße,
