Summary: I bought this radio to use in case the power went out. I was battery operated. Didn't check out battery use until the ice storm in February 2015. The battery option does not work at all. The radio will not pick up well. Can not even pick up some local stations. This was a total waste of money.
Summary: Works very well at pulling in distant AM stations. On FM, it pulls stations rather too well; distant station along with local station of the same frequency is a bit irritating. Use this in my shop & volume control is more than my geezer ears can handle. Tuner indicator is big & easily visible.
The sound is clear and the reception is good! He says this radio is GREAT

Summary: I purchased this for my husband. He loves it. We had a hard time trying to find a radio that didn't involve an "alarm" or a clock of any kind! Just a simple radio is all that he wanted. He listens to radio talk shows daily. It has been 7 weeks and he is still on the first set of batteries!
Summary: The Panasonic RF-2400 is a very good radio for the money. It's great looking and performs fairly well. It's not going to pull in those distant fringe radio signals, but it's as good as any portable I've owned. Tone quality from the 4" speaker is very good and there's plenty of volume on tap.
