The brightness of the dial scale may be adjusted by a dimmer switch at the back.
And bass and treble controls can be pressed,without changing their setting,for adjusting the volume interfernce free.


I used to have a 1970s era Grundig radio with little plastic sliding tabs----along the top of the frequency bar----that could be used to mark favorite stations.

The dial markers are interesting but it still means you have to look at the radio to set the station. For its price I would rather have a remote with direct presets.

Hello Friends,
Has anyone seen inside of Radio Shack 12-586 pocket radio?I feel that it's a sort of ''radio on a IC'',Or a sort of DSP chip based set.


The new photos of the WR-12 don't match the old one. The old photo had recessed tone and bass controls.

Refer to my earlier post on radio shack pocket radio 12-586 as above.My observation proves that it's a silicon chip Si4831-B30 based mechanical tuning AM/FM Radio receiver,similar to Kaito KA321(Degen DE321).
So we have a DSP radio in disguise from RADIO SHACK.
