Excerpt: I had been looking for a radio that I could plug in while listening at night. For years I have used my smaller Sony ICF-380 radio which operates on AA batteries. When I found the ICF-38 it looked like it just might do the job. The reception is very good. I use it mostly at night on AM.
Pros: Lightweight, Signal Strength, Sturdy, Tone Quality
Excerpt: Great replacement for a clock radio that was taking up a lot of kitchen counter space. This radio is nicely designed -- you can store the extra power cord length in the battery compartment. I've used it for FM only, so far, and it gets great reception with a classic retractable antenna.
Summary: Bought this radio to replace an older one that I take camping. Thanks to the antenna on this one I can listen to Sunday night baseball or NFL football. It's compact and lighter than the old radio I had.
Summary: This radio works great. I have it in my master bathroom & listen when I'm getting ready in morning. I've had a hard time getting good reception with other radios but this picks up my stations with good sound. It also fits perfectly on the windowsill.
