Kaito KA2100, Sony SRF-59, Sony SRF-M37W, Sharp DRW-V2, Sandisk Sansa e250, Sony ICF-SW7600GR, Magnavox RF3094BK11, Panasonic RF-888, Sony TFM-8000, GE Superadio III, Zenith TransOceanic Royal 3000-1, Panasonic RF-2600.

I can't identify two. The Red Panasonic, and the other small portable next to the Kaito.

Keith

The red Panasonic is a RS-833S.
Still stumped on the last portable.

Ed

Paul & Keith: Whoa, you guys know your radios! The common theme was that these are all battery-powered portables.
I thought I would throw you off with a ringer--the Red Panasonic 8-Track portable (RS-833 is Correct!), which doesn't even have a radio. The small portable is another ringer, a rare 60's-era VISTA 802, which is from my "Oldies" collection--I'll post them another day if there is any interest.
Good job!

Keith

That was fun - and - great seeing a pic of other addict's radios. I'm going to show my wife to show her I'm not the only 'mad' one.
Hats off to Paul! All the other models were familiar, but I could only put model numbers to a few (without an hours research).
Lets see some other collections.

From those models which one is :
1. Best on FM,
2. Best on AM,
3. Best on Sw,
4. Best on sound ?

Ed

Huesby, if there was one that was best in everything, I wouldn't need so many radios! Each has something different going for it. I'll let others rank them.

Ed

Best FM (sensitivity): Kaito 2100 (when it works)
Best AM: GE SuperRadio, Sony 8000
Best SW: Sony 7600GR, Montgomery Ward, Sony 8000
Best Sound: (very subjective): RF-888, Zenith, GE Superadio. Note: the Sony Ultralite radios when used with quality headphones can be quite hi-fi.
