Can someone suggest me a good small (small not GEIII or CC size! :))radio that is great in receiving MW? Help much appreciated. Send in your replies to mahasenan@hotmail.com.

G3 sucks!

According to this article, the best of the smaller radios (i.e., G3 size) for MW AM reception are the Degen DE-1103, Eton E5 and Grundig G5, but they still only get two out of five stars.

One thing to keep in mind is that there is a lot of sample to sample variation among G3 units. It's possible that the G3 you tried didn't perform as well as the design is capable of on MW AM, due to poor quality control. I've heard of people having to go through several samples to get a "good" one. As Jay says in the article above, "there’s no denying that quality control and unit to unit variability are poor on the G3."
