Hi Ginger, nice to make your acquittance. you can get the SRF-59 at K-Mart for 14.95. It is a very good little radio and you will catch a lot of DX with it. The Kaito looks like a good one, a lot of the Chinese radio's are marketed by Kaito.

Hey Albert, I see you are from or live in the ST Louis area, me too. Webster Groves, Affton, Maplewood, ST Louis city, Cahokia on the other side. Anyway, I'm ordering a SRF-59 to see how good these little baby's are, very curious. I just got a Kaito WRX911 and am extremely pleased with all it does for the size, check out the reviews. I also see you worked for McDonald Douglas/Boeing, have many friends who worked there, I worked at Fenton Chrysler for 16 years, now bulldozed. Have fun with your new toy's!!

Just spent the last two hours listening to a high school baseball game on a station just a little above the static level on my SRF-59. When I listened to it on my DT-400W it was twice as loud and a much more pleasant experience.
Therefore the SRF-59 gets no cigar in that respect. However, cross station modulation is a different story. Here the SRF-59 has a small advantage.
All that having been said, analog is good but digital is better! :-)
After 66 years I believe that change is good, pushing buttons is better than trying to tweak a dam little tuner wheel that chews off my finger nails! LOL Seeing a large lighten frequency display beats the heck out of going blind trying read a little hash mark with fat red needle on an analog display!!!
I was a Boeing engineer in the military division, we know all about EMP, most planes are EMP hardened these days. Over in Europe they may not have caught on to that yet. Our F-15 Eagle has a kill ratio of 150 to 0 no other aircraft design has come close to that in all of aviation history. ;-)
I thought you UK blokes called tubes valves? Hum, maybe hes not a Brit.
This is all meant in fun, what the heck Armageddon is going to start on Saturday anyway.

Please note that it is sacrilege to suggest
any uldx could be superior to the SRF-59 :-)
Digital display : uuuugh! Cranial interpolation
The only EMP-and-future-proof uldx rx will
be a homebrew tube-job... So informed
by a TV documentary on the presidential
eschatalogical Boeing which eschews digital
in favo(u)r of resiliant analog...
Any designs out there?
MiG 25s had it.

It blows the doors of my Sony SRF-M37V and the SRF-49 in that respect.
I will watch for this and compare it to the SRF-59 and PL-310 in the next few evenings.
