Paul

So how was AM on the radio?

Angelo

Paul: The AM was shockingly good. Again----the sound on the radio is what you'd expect from a pocket portable with a little, inexpensive speaker. But I was astounded by how many AM stations I was able to pick up from my location in Washington, DC----some of the mid-range ones (New York City, Richmond, Virginia) clearer and more listenable than on much larger, more expensive radios. It clearly outperformed my older transistor radios, such as my early 1970s General Electrics. This is a definite strong buy at less than twenty bucks.

Based on the review (great reception on AM and FM) it sounds like this Radioshack radio is also using Silicon Labs' DSP chip:

I,ve been buying Radio Shack radios for years for fishing trips.
My last one, which cost about $15.00, lasted about 12 years after being exposed to wind,rain and and a wide assortment of bait and fish guts.
Not only do they work well, they are nearly indestructible.

Paul: That looks like a good buy at thirty bucks if it has the chip----probably easier tuning than the pocket radio too.
