Re: Sony SRF-59

Les Rayburn

I keep a Sony SRF-59 in the bedstead with a small pair of earbuds. While the tuning is tricky, the radio has several advantages. Super share nulls by rotating the until slowly both in a circle, and also be tilting it to various angles. It’s also very sensitive, and fairly selective despite the wide-open filters. 

My wife loves it because it produces no dial light, and doesn’t keep her awake while I DX. I’ve put quite a few new ones in the book with it. Even have a brand-new until still sealed in the back for the day when my bedside model finally gives up the ghost. Great value.

Hi Bob, 

Thanks for this, I'm happy to hear that you still like to switch your one on from time to time - I've read great reports about these online.

Looking forward to the darker hours tonight. 

All the best,
