Now it dropped to $100.97. I'm not sure what's up will these fast-changing prices on Amazon.

Today I got my Radio Shack – 12-586 pocket radio.
It's ok on FM (seemingly).
On AM I need suggestions.
Sensitivity & selectivity seems ok but the volume on AM is one third of that on FM for the same setting.Tried toggling AM/FM switch the few times,but no improvement.Any thing that I can do without opening the radio,as it's in warranty period.

Right now the CCRadio-SW is down to $90.87 at Amazon. This is nearly $50 cheaper than mine was when I bought it at Amazon in October 2009.

Got one on order at $90.87. Jay Allen has high praise for this radio and at under a C note it seems to be a bargain!

As of right now (8 AM EDT Thursday) it's still $90.87 and there are 11 left in stock, which is interesting because last night they only had one left in stock.

Good catch on the Radio Shack 12-586 but I already have a Sangean DT-210 and a Sony SRF-S84. I'll keep my eye on that radio, though. You never know when you'll need just one more pocket radio!

The CCRadio-SW is back up to $100.97 at Amazon this morning.

I'm saving my money for the Sangean WR-12. I would like to review one by October.

I received my under-$91 CCRadio-SW from Amazon today. Unfortunately, it's far less sensitive across the MW (AM Broadcast) band than my other CCR-SW purchased in 2009. I tested it at 530 kHz, 1700 kHz, and at points in between. Also, the tuning is off -- most stations sound better tuned 1 kHz low. This sample-to-sample variability of Chinese-made radios is very frustrating.
