Summary: This is a great little radio to have on a desk or in a kitchen or on your nightstand (it has an alarm clock). I used it mainly to listen to talk radio in my office at work, which is in a basement. I can pickup several Seattle radio stations pretty well (I'm about 60-70 miles from Seattle).
in a few minutes the signal develops a strong "scratching" sound like static electricity

Summary: The radio does not work very well in the AM mode. When listening on AM, in a few minutes the signal develops a strong "scratching" sound like static electricity. Nothing I've tried so far relieves this problem.
Summary: After 5 years of daily use (much of it outdoors) our PR-D7 was looking 'beat up' and the volume dial needs a wedge now to function, after one too many drops. The PR-D15 seemed like the perfect new radio, with many upgrades and also rechargeable.
Summary: All that I anticipated . Clarity of tone and easy to use. The AM pickes up the stations I want and the FM with the swivel antenna am able to enjoy distant stations. Use it only plugged into the wall. Living in Earthquake territory got 2 sets of batteries.
I bought it because we live in what I call a pretty dead zone

Summary: This radio was billed as being able to pick up difficult stations. I bought it because we live in what I call a pretty dead zone. We still only get two country radio channels. They are usually clearer than they used to be, but still sometimes won't come in.
