You get what you pay for.

  • Summary: The build quality is what you would expect for the price the controls are extremely stiff making it difficult to precisely tune stations It receives fairly well though. I bought it to search for some local interference to my ham radio and it was great for that.

  • Summary: when I first bought this I didn't know much about shortwave I did some research before purchasing it, but since I've had it I haven't seen another Shortwave Portable that has as many bands, and none with Long Wave that do not cost 3 to 4 times the amount of this radio.

For the price it is what it is......

  • Summary: This radio is okay. Just okay. Okay? LOL! I love radio. I love listening to radio as well as collecting shortwave radios. I am especially fond of old fashioned analog radios. Digital radios just do not do it for this Baby Boomer. That being said this radio worked well right out of the box.

Did not work

Rebecca P. Thomson "waterrates", Amazon
31 August 2013
  • Summary: It was not a big investment, but I did need one that actually worked. This one did not come alive at all. Not a peep. I intended to return it, but the web site is so convoluted I could not figure out how to contact the seller. Ebay sure beats amazon in this manner.

What a piece of crap !

thomas w., Amazon
14 July 2013
  • Summary: People stay away from that product , it is just a pile of plastic and metal and worthless ! 1. You cannot see the display because it has no light behind it or it doesnt work , so you have to listen to the stations to figur out if it is the one you are looking for if you can pick up a station ! 2.

It's Alright...

J. Nieporte, Amazon
3 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought two of these from SoulGood via Amazon Marketplace in Used - Very Good condition. The cost was $10.13 each, as opposed to the "new" price of $13 The Used - Very Good was a broken tab on the battery door of one, and some small scratches on the corner of the other. Nothing to worry about.
