Along with the 7TP-352M, this is one of a pair of MW/SW shirt pocket radios introduced by Toshiba in 1960 (maybe 1959), the only difference between them being their short wave band coverage. Both models have a built-in telescopic antenna. This 7TP-352S covers six international short wave broadcast bands between 6 and 18 MHz, as is marked on the dial below the SW frequency numbers. There's a long wire antenna jack on the side, next to the earphone jack.
