The Tecsun R-911 and R-912 do not work well in a high Rf environment such as a dialysis center. I tested both radios.

And the build quality of the R-9012 is outstanding when you consider its price.

I like these inexpensive radios, I've had a WRX-911, R-911, and now a R9012. All three of these have outstanding battery life with alkalines 400+ hours. Nighttime AM is really good at price, and daytime is great for locals upto about 70 miles. Of course one can use a loop on these to extend daytime a bit, and get better sensitivity. (But the loop actually costs more than these radios)

In 10 years of Ultralighting, only the brand new dirt-cheap-DSP sets give these a run for the money, but the AM ferrite bar has to be removed, and the batteries last about 50 hours. OTOH the DCDSP's are $12: the analogs are $20.
