It was a pleasure to receive a Christmas gift in the mail today, a vintage 45-year-old Panasonic RF-900 in clean condition with no scratchy volume or tuning issues. Angelo sent this radio to me from Virginia.
I placed it in the twins' bathroom for a test on the AC and the FM and AM were outstanding, grabbing all the stations I listen to with ease, including the faraway KPCC.
AM sounds very pleasing and far superior to my modern radios, which lack that majestic AM sound known only to vintages. I'm surprised how close this radio is in sound and reception to my Apex Performer Panasonic RF-888.
I think I'll put in batteries and keep around the house as a go-to portable.
Thanks, Angelo, for a great radio and a reminder of why I became "a radio lover who can't be cured" ten years ago.
