                Comments about Pocket AM/FM Shortwave Radio:

                I mainly use the radio for AM reception and it does
                receive stations that are far from my location and from the area that I am from. I would have liked if
                a AC adapter had been provided to ensure that the
                voltage is correct.

                        I like that the device holds the frequency it is tuned to. Devices I used in the past when you moved the frequncy shifted. This has not happened with this device. Perfect for doing yardwork and listening to the ball game or NPR.

                                  I would recommend this product. I am very pleased. It is light, compact, has an alarm clock, is easy to set time and alarm, and easy to use the tuning functions. I can't comment on the Short wave, haven't used it yet.

                                  Very bad sound (not expected from Grundig); digital station knob does not stay on picked station, it moves up and down by itself.
