Re: Get yourself an SRF-59 (or a spare) for $9.99!!!

Very interesting. This radio has been out for quite some time. Some
refurbs are units there's nothing wrong with; the customer didn't like
it but it can't be sold as new. Other refurbs were returned because
there was a problem. Refurbs are supposedly brought up to factory spec.

another unit. It is of average sensitivity (clearly could still
benefit from an alignment), and has a scratchy sounding tuning
thumbwheel. I'm guessing that the "refurbished" 59's are not getting a
thorough check out.
