How many batteries does it take? What size is the speaker? Is the 1130 a shortwave set too?

Angelo

It's a neat layout. It's probably worth $210.00 to put on a table just to look at it. Wow.

Mike W

You got one! I'm drooling on the keyboard. The reward circuits must be overloading.

If I am not mistaken, I think a link I posted (to a Japanese-language page) may have first brought this rare Panasonic to your attention.

Honestly, it's the first thing I've seen that I'd consider swapping my RF-2200 for since I bought it.

Go straight for the DeOxit and skip the cheaper contact cleaners.

jeffrey McMahon

Yes, thanks to Mike, I was first apprised of the RF-1130. I will answer Ed's questions by editing the post.

A radio like deserves the real DeOxit. The can should last you for many radios, so it is worth the $15.

jeffrey McMahon

I just ordered DeOxit on Amazon. Six ounces for 10 dollars plus 5 dollars shipping.

Mike W

They get that $15 out of you one way or the other.

Paul

Practically all Radioshack stores have the DeoxIT/ProGold Twin Pack for $15 (see the RS web site and search for 64-4338).

Paul

You need some of that Novus number 1 polish to clean the surface too. Search Google or Amazon for Novus Polish.

jeffrey McMahon

Novus, DeOxit . . . The things I learn on this blog, my very own radio seminar/workshop.

Ed

Jeff, I'll swap you my RF2600 for your RF1130 some weekend. Would like to try it out.

jeffrey McMahon

Sure. Give me a few weeks to emerge from the purple haze of infatuation over the 1130.

Brian

I understand that feeling over a new radio. I can't wait until I get home this evening. My 888 is just waiting to be used.

Ed

Jeff, have you noticed that recently KABC 790 has a faint Spanish station in the background, no matter what radio or antenna orientation is used? (not that I listen to that station much).
It's something recent; must be one of those mega-watt stations in Mexico on the same frequency.

jeffrey McMahon

Ed, I tuned to 790 on both my Sangean WR-2 and my Panasonic RF-1130 and indeed heard the Spanish station in the background.

What is 790 to do? How many listeners will they lose? Do they know of the problem?
