This is an E-Bay "Buy It Now" aquisition, $10.00 plus another $7.22 for shipping.
It's the DAK model DMR-3000. DAK was a popular electronics mail order catalog in the 1970's and 1980's. Apparently, they ran out of steam in the mid-1990's and went out of business. But the founder, Drew Kaplan, has started DAK again, this time largely using the internet to market his merchandise. The old DAK offered everything from bread makers, to blank cassette tapes, to wristwatches...and a few shortwave radios.
The DMR-3000 was one of their final efforts. It's made in China----I'm not sure who the manufacturer is, or if it's a clone of another radio (Maybe one of you will know by looking at it). It has 36 presets and direct tuning. It's about the size of a Sangean ATS-505, maybe slightly smaller. It covers the full compliment of AM-FM and Shortwave and does so competently. Though this set is not "Dual Conversion" and does not feature SSB, it seemed to pick up shortwave broadcasts at least as well as my Sangean 505 (using only the whip antennas on both radios).
The speaker sound, while by no means rivaling a Panasonic RF 3000, at least holds its own with other small modern hand held radios. I guess that means it sounds like a moderately good quality clock radio, but no better.
I use this size/style of radio as a bedside companion, listening on headphones so my wife can sleep. For that purpose, this radio serves quite well---enough so that I sold my Sangean. The 505 was a decent radio, and I bought it at a great price...but I never could get used to the ergonomics of that Sangean. Just repositioning or picking the radio up, I would turn it off or change the station. By contrast, this DAK is more intuitive and less clunky---surprising based on the age of the radio. These originally retailed for around $80.00---probably about right for what it was in 1995. This particular radio has a few issues: It was missing a battery cover (I fabricated a new one.). It has a replacement antenna that is larger than the original and was missing its upper sections and tip (For cosmetics, I put a new tip on---and the antenna works well enough.). The seller disclosed the missing parts. The seller DIDN'T disclose that the batteries don't make good contact. Sometimes, just by putting the radio down on the floor or on a counter, the batteries seem to lose contact or something else shorts. Next time I go to use the radio, the time and presets are lost.
There is some corrosion on the battery contacts----I'm wondering if it's worth trying to rough up the contacts or clean them with steel wool---if that will help. I typically use this radio to channel surf, so the presets aren't a big deal, but it's still annoying. Sometimes it takes a minute to jar the radio/batteries enough to get it to come back on. No power cord/adapter was provided, so I use it with batteries only.
All in all, for seventeen bucks, delivered, I can't complain too much! I e-mailed with DAK and they tell me that this March, they're coming out with a portable Internet radio. They didn't tell me the price---but I plan to check into it.
