Rik, that one looks like an S10 MK2 with a restyled cabinet. I have two S10's, one is slightly hotter on AM, the other on FM. I use one around the house and yard, and keep the other in the car glovebox as an "emergency" radio. They are great little radios for the price.

There is a S in the model number, but no W.

It is AM and FM only, and costs about $30.

The "SONY ICF S 22 personal radio"


I decided to order one anyway, but would still like to hear from any one who has one.

Thanks Paul, SONY has so many models they have made, many have very similar model numbers, which often throws me off.- FARMERIK
