A reader complained that this post is a repeat. I do sometimes repeat posts if they are popular based on traffic. Sorry to the reader, whose comment I deleted, is so offended.

Well, this reader is not complaining that this post is a repeat. This reader is complaining that he just got an RCA Superadio III, and it sucks.

I had the GE SR III for years before giving it away as a gift, so I assumed the RCA version was a known quantity. No such luck.

The alignment is so off that 590 AM reads as almost 700, and the NYC stations that I bought it for are hard to receive.

I bought it on impulse and see now that it might be a refurb, and the seller's return policy is mostly for defective items.

Another impulse buy was a Sony ICF-6700W yesterday, after which I wished I had waited for an ICF- 6800W. or just bought neither.

This impulse buying sure leads to disappointment.

I've bought some duds, plenty in fact.

I gave my GE SRIII away but kind of miss it. I loved the big sound. But the tuning dial was as you described.

This may be too off-topic, but I think it's the stock market that has me bummed, and the radio thing is just a more tangible disappointment for my mind to latch on to.

The S&P was down big again today, important resistance levels were breached, and it shows no sign of stopping. I could fill my place with radios with what I lost in a few hours today.

So the radios being screwed up is just icing on that mound of s***.

I think a lot of boomers are feeling some version of this. Well, I'm going to go to sleep. At least that still seems to work.

I can't even sleep, the economy keeps me up at night.

What kills me is nobody can assure that there is a bottom or where that bottom is.
