Summary: This is the second basic Coby AM/FM radio I purchased from Amazon.com, and both models were total junk. I returned one, but I had already discarded all packaging from this one, so I feel too guilty to return this one, too.
Summary: I mean what do you expect in a $10 shortwave radio? Not much. Edited: The radio is now selling for almost $30. This is ludicrous. DO NOT BUY THIS RADIO AT THIS PRICE. I haven't used mine a lot, so it hasn't worn out like those of other reviewers, but it's obviously cheaply made.
Summary: I'm generally a fan of Coby in the cheap radio market, but this one was disappointing. The radio didn't work first try, but it did after I removed and re-installed the batteries. Then I found that the "Off" button didn't work.
Summary: It is exactly what I wanted, a very lightweight radio for hiking. It weighs almost nothing and is a great addition to my hikes. It is not a world class receiver, but it is well worth the $10 I paid for it. It receives everything I want to. FM is great but AM it can only receive close stations.
