I just bought a CCrane CCRadioSW for a friend of mine because it seems to be the same radio as the Kaito 2100/Redsun RP2100. I'll be interested to see if it works as well for him in Oakland, Calif. as it does for me in Chicago.

He wants to be able to get KOMO 1000 in Seattle.

(By the way, I would've gotten him a Kaito 2100, but Amazon doesn't seem to have it in stock, and I figured Universal Radio would take too long to send it. Besides, he'll appreciate the CCRadioSW's much better manual, which I've seen online. Knowing him, he would probably be annoyed by the Kaito's manual, which was clearly written by someone for whom English was not a first language.)

David,

Funny, I'm from Oakland (1971-1989) and my brother still lives nearby in Berkeley. The San Francisco Bay Area gets great reception, a bit better than here in LA.

I can't promise he'll get that Seattle station.

The only manual directions I've had problems with is setting the clock for "normal" time, not military.

The more I use the 2100, the more I like and admire it. There's no radio out there with this kind of reception. I suspect best case scenario for the $300 Satellit 750 is that it will equal the 2100.

Sounds like you got your friend a great present.

I once lived in Oakland, too (1997-2005). I used my Sony ICF-7601 there, and I did find reception of out of market stations to be very good.

I lived near Piedmont Ave. and Macarthur Blvd. Sometimes I miss sitting on the benches that surround Lake Merritt, especially at night. I still have several friends in Oakland.

The friend I bought the CCRadioSW for lives in the Oakland hills, near Montclair.

My first girlfriend is from Montclaire and I used to teach at Merritt College. Nostalgia. My brother is thinking of moving from the Berkeley Hills to Piedmont. He develops bio-fuel parks. I guess he can afford it.
