I have been reading your site for about a year. The name here is Joe, and I am a FCC licensed technician, as well as a seasoned ham. I have been in the repair business for over 45 years, and have a professional career as well. The reason I'm e-mailing directly is to make You aware of the shoddy seconds Amazon is selling. This past spring, I purchased (2) Grundig G-4000's.
I knew the moment I got them, these were refurbs or seconds. Water-stained LCD displays, and corroded shield pieces were the norm.
Then, we get into the lousy switches, with bad mechanical feel. I still haven't figured out what to do about these switches yet.
A few days ago, I received my CC=SW. It's a great radio, in concept. The front metal piece on mine looks like it was in a street fight. MW. is lack-luster,
but I can fix that .Also, I don't know if the LCD display is lit by one lamp or two. Amazon makes it difficult to return products, as well as other firms.
These days, "shipping cost" is the new way to get "screwed". I own many radios, and if anyone needs a good Satelite 750, I'll part with it.
Thanks for the time, and save the e-mail address. I don't "buy into" twitter or facebook. Thanks, and 73. Joe
