Re: Radio Shack AM/FM Catalog #12-586


Looks to be more in the league of the Sony ICF-S10. Both have speaker and telescopic antenna which the SRF-59 does not; further, the SRF-59 is based on Sony's custom CXA1129N (receiveron a chip) which is, in large part, responsible for its great performance. AFAIK none of the "speaker radios" has this circuit.

For those that might be interested, just picked subject radio up at Radio
Shack for $14. Initial comparison with my SRF-59 looks like it's very close
in performance. Another inexpensive toy to play with.

I'm apathetic, but I don't care
