Yes it has AM.  The sync detection is very fast lockup.  It also has three sensitivity positions.  The s-meter works well.  The air band is one button push and you're there.  It's a good radio for SW and noise hunting.  Takes 4 AA batteries.  Easy access.  Does SSB.  A jack for external antenna.  Also a treble/bass switch.  A tuning step switch.  Backlit LCD display, what more can I say.
