Paul, Gerald says he uses his outdoors and with all his vintage radios, it must be a good one.

I've got one of these. Thing picks up FM stations like nothing I've seen (just turn the tuning knob a hair or two and you're on the next station in my area, and beyond?). And I haven't even tried it outside yet. The AUX in/out jacks are rather nice too.

Now, the question is, am I wasting my time commenting on a post almost 5 years old?

Beefcake: Nope, not wasting your time. We readers leave no stone unturned on this blog!

So, another 5 years and I'll add some kudos for this radio. I inherited it from my sister. It spent much of its early life in Alaska. And much of that time it would be carried cross-country in the high-country to the remote hand-hewn wilderness cabin in the highlands of Alaska. Another transistor radio used back there, a long way from any house house or cabin, was sold for a year or two thru Allied Radio. It was a "Lincoln" brand I think. It came from the Allied Radio Catalog about 1959 and was an AM, FM, and one or two SW bands. That one had a pull-up whip for SW and in the handle a pair of tip-up and pull out dipole antennas for the FM band. To my dismay, since I had selected it for my sister many years earlier, that radio was left in the cabin for whoever might need the place for shelter or might take it over after they relocated to Texas. Many years later I saw the exact same radio at a Hamfest and snagged it fast for the sake of nostalgia. Once when my sister was visiting I showed it to her and she was flabbergasted! I even have the Allied Radio catalog in which it was advertised.
