« More Info on the Tecsun R-2010 | Main | GE 7-28810 Superish Radio Selling on eBay »

October 22, 2011



Great entry. Very enjoyable read. And I agree that GE manufactured an astonishing array of different portable and pocket radios during the 50s through the 80s. I remember a lot of the 70s and 80s models (when I was growing up). I have a couple nice GEs and still enjoy them.


On Ebay now:



I had one last year and I had to fixed it cause mine was bought broken and I can say:

1. Nice and loud sound but not up to a Superadio quality but it has 6 inches speaker like SR´s

2. Good sensitivity on AM and FM but not comparable to a Superadio as this design IT´S NOT a Tuned RF Design as Superadios are.

3. Good quality like a SR3 but not up to SR1 or 2

After having lots of radios I can say that for a collector point of view Superadio 2 is among the most important radios like Panasonic RF-2200, Sony ICF-5900, perhaps a Zenith TransOceanic R7000-2 and Sony ICF-2010 and then whatever else.


My family used to have one of these back in the 80's. A 1980 manufacture date would seem right. Great, fun radio that we used to use at our cabin, we'd pull in all the Seattle-Tacoma stations about 60 miles away.

If I remember correctly, ours was green plastic with black knobs/accents.


Just because this GE model resembles a Superadio doesn't mean it is one. Quit presuming things.


Harry, where are you located? I'm in s/e Louisiana, 1 hour s/w of New Orleans.
I can catch AM stations in Amarillo & Dallas Texas, also Georgia, besides Cincinnati, Chicago, etc. Looking at one of these, originally and still looking at GE Superadio IIs.

I know this post is old but does anyone know how I can get a replacement antenna?
