Richard H had bad luck with the Sony ICF-F10:
I saw mention of this model radio in one of the posts on your site, and ordered one via Amazon from Wall Street Photo. It arrived this past Friday, but unfortunately it was DOA. Fresh batteries, but no sound at all, on either band. I tried [mono] headphones, no luck. I contacted Wall Street Photo, and asked for a replacement. They sent an RMA number, and a return address, and said nothing about replacing it, but offered a refund after return in 'new' condition.
I thought I'd post a message about my experience, and the radio serial number, but I couldn't find the original article with the link I used to find the radio from late April 2010.
The serial # is 562453. It would be interesting if they ship the radio to someone else, still DOA.
