Hi Jeff. Yes, I remember how impressed you and I were with 8000's flywheel tuning mechanism, as is Jay Allen. It is a great radio, but about a year ago I sold it to make room for new radios, as I am an eBay seller and don't keep my radio finds forever, although in the case of the 8000 I held onto it for longer than normal. It is such an icon of Sony's former glory that I almost couldn't bear to part with it! Highly recommended.


Jay Allen told me that there is an identical looking model called the ICF-8000 that dispenses with the Public Service band in favor of an additional shortwave band, and replaces the squelch switch with a wide/narrow bandwidth switch. This sounds like another nice vintage Sony to acquire.
