"Why did you choose this product?"
I bought this for my mother. Her house is in a low area and she has trouble picking up even local stations. This radio will pick up stations far away. It is heavy so there are no worries about the wind blowing it away when she is listening to sports outside!...

I needed a basic radio for a wilderness camp which over the years saw many "donations" of old boom boxes, cassette and CD radios with knobs, buttons, sliders, etc. in various stages of functionality, mostly bad. It had to be AC and battery powered for use indoors and out so this looked promising. Out of the box it sounded "boomy", the speaker has good output but too much bass and no tone control available. I added some polyester sound fiber to the recesses behind the speaker (yes I took it apart) and this neutralized the boomy sound. Nice basic radio, 2 knobs and a handful of buttons so it's easy to operate. The battery compartment captured knob is nice as well as the hinged door. I dislike push buttons for volume or tuning so this works for me. The presets only give you 5 each of FM or AM. I wish it allowed more but like I said, basic radio. The charging feature is quirky, you have to set a switch in the battery compartment to "charge" (remove 2 batteries) insert chargeable batteries, plug in the radio and it will charge, turn the radio on and charging stops. Also it has no indicator for AC or battery so if it doesn't come on check the power source. Another quirk: It had fine FM reception plugged in but when operated on batteries it suffers. Have to move it around for better pickup. Then I discovered by just moving the uncoiled power cord around it got better! So it seems the power cord feeds the FM band whether plugged in or not, kind of weird. All in all this will fill the bill for a rugged radio for our camp. If Sangean ever produces one with a few more presets and tone control and ability to charge batteries while listening to the radio I'll be first inline to order one.Read More
