Excerpt: Bought this radio to replace my old SONY ICF-2001D, which I had to send to retirement. SW is a habit acquired many years ago: listen to world News in their original version (unfiltered). Must mention the improvement in the attenuator control, basic in a world of permanently increasig statics.
Pros: Good Sound Quality, Great Reception, Lightweight
Excerpt: I have been using a Sony "SW7600" model since 1994, tuning to local FM as well as SW broadcast from far away countries. Two months ago the AM tuning was off by 10's of kHz. A quick search on the Internet found that this is a known problem for this model due to defective capacitors. I am handy with electronics repair so I ordered the parts and fixed the radio.
Pros: Good Sound Quality, Great Build Quality, Great Reception, Lightweight, Long Battery Life
Excerpt: Its a High Performance AM, FM, LW, SW & FM portable receiver. I owned many radios over the years and this GEM beats them all. The radio is NOT made in China and is manufactured in a high tech manufacturing plant located in Japan that has strict quality control standards. If you want a high performance radio that will last many years this is the one!
Pros: Durable, Good Sound Quality, Great Reception, Lightweight, Long Battery Life
Excerpt: I will not be using this for SW radio. I just wanted a high quality AM/FM with plenty of presets. This has it. The good Sony guts of the radio pulls in many stations with clarity. This radio is a good value, and it has shortwave for those who are interested. The overall size of the radio would be just right for many people, and using AA batteries is a plus.
Excerpt: Seems to be a very sensitive radio in a small package. I have listened to broadcasts on AM, FM and Short Wave as well as Amateur Radio Operators during contacts. All of these were accomplished with the built-in telescoping antenna. I will later put up an outside antenna, but so far, the radio has performed better than I had expected and I'm looking forward to using it more in the future.
Pros: Durable, Good Sound Quality, Great Reception, Lightweight
Excerpt: This is the third radio that my husband has owned! He had to purchase a new one because the switch wore out, but he listens to it every night! He has traveled with it to faraway places such as Russia and always has enjoyed it. It has good reception and is very satisfying to,use.
Excerpt: A month with this good radio, I buy this in Adorama, I use it for my travels in Chihuahua MX, I use NiMH battery´s and have a very long time to use. The only thing that i like to change is the small screen and the poor led light, but i thing this help to save power. After buy I compare this with the G3, I thing later I buy the G3 only to have the Air band and general compare.
Pros: Durable, Good Sound Quality, Long Battery Life
Excerpt: Only gets in SW Texas a couple of stations like 3 and not clear, NO MATTER WHAT TIME OR DAY IT IS, not worth buyint this radio. Maybe in the 1980's there were a lot more stations in the air, but now, like there is none. Save you money and use the internet to listen to international radio stations.
