I just saw the PR-D5 on Amazon and am looking for a couple of new radios after not having bought any in about 5 years. I think I posted on one of Jeff's Amazon reviews somewhere that I wait for the Herculodge review now before buying a gadget, and meant it as kind of a joke at the time, but here I am waiting for the Herculodge review of the PR-D5.

FYI, I emailed Universal Radio asking which radio had better MW performance in their opinion, the KA2100 or the PR-D5, and I was told the latter. I just opened my steadily-deteriorating CCRadio to try to fix the power button, and that gave me a chance to measure the ferrite antenna. As suspected, 200 mm on the nose. So we know where Sangean is getting the antenna and possibly more from.

I expect the PR-D5 to have performace comparable to the CCRadio, at a substantially lower price.

eHam review rates the vintage Sony ICF-S5W higher than the PR-D5:
