Reader, I can vouch for Jeff. Having met him several times f-2-f, I can assure you he exaggerates his various self-ascribed neurotic quirks. He is unfailingly sociable and gregarious, so I don't know where he's coming from with the "antisocial" stuff. Maybe he expects that someone with his passion for radios MUST exhibit creepy loner behavior in order to be credible. (Ah, you don't have to live down to the stereotype, Jeff!)
Like Earth in the "Hitch-Hiker's Guide," I would describe Jeff's behavior, and radiophiles in general, as "Mostly harmless."

That reminds me: I need to read the Hitch-Hiker's Guide. I keep forgetting.

You're a little too hard on yourself, Jeff. After all, they're just radios, not crystal meth or something.

It's the some of the people in your classroom and gym environment that you've written about who could use a little more self-effacing introspection, not you.

jeffrey McMahon

Fair point. Compulsive radio shopping probably isn't on any top ten pathology lists like gambling.

Jeff, can you please provide a list of your current radio inventory and their locations in your house? I think I need a few more radios and I need some ideas on where to locate them. Of course, my wife would answer that question for me as well.

Thanks.

That's always changing, but here's a few:

Bedroom: BA Horizon Solo
Kitchen: BA Horizon Solo and Sangean PR-D5
Workout Room: Sangean WR-2
Office: BA Horizon Duo and Panasonic RF-888
Living Room: Panasonic RF-3000

This will be changing soon as more radios for review are on the way.

where do you keep the redsun 2100? i personally like that radio as far as shortwave reception goes. hey, one of these days i owe you a grundig 960 review as well. need to do it soon, because i'm going to get rid of it...

jeffrey McMahon

I put my CSW (based on Redsun 2100) for sale on Amazon. I have too many radios and constantly need to sell old ones to make room for new ones.

Ed

I don't think I'd sell anything right now. With the economy crashing, tangible assets will go up in value as the value of the dollar goes down. ( I write this as the Dow is down more than 700 points, the biggest drop in history.)

jeffrey McMahon

Thus far no one has bought my for sale radios.

I read yezsterday that imports from Japan were down 50% last month compared to a year ago, the economy is tanking.
