Wow, thanks for the heads up, I would never have given this radio a 2nd thought.

On the downside, now all your readers will be bidding against each other when the next one turns up.

Jeffrey McMahon

I doubt it. Only a handful of readers will take note and even a smaller amount will find and bid on one. I looked on eBay for one today and couldn't find one.

Jeff: I´ve received yesterday my superadios I,II,and III and I can tell you that:
1.Superadio I,and II ARE THE SAME except that the II has a little tweeter and their performance is the same, no more no less.
2.Superadio III is completly different and it´s performance is less than the others.
3.Compared their AM reception against my champions Sony ICF-5900, Sony ICF-7201, Pana RF-2800, RF-2600, the sensitivity in all of them is more or less the same BUT the resistence to overmodulation and interference from near transmitters (in both frequency and place) of the Superadio I and II is CLEARLY SUPERIOR over the THEM (I live near some powerful AM and FM transmitters), I think that in a remote beach far away from the civilization all of them would be the same in reception, but in the city the superadios prevail (Superadio III also suffer overmodulation like the rest of them).
Next weekend I´ll go to that remote beach and I´ll inform you of the results.
4.ADDED BONUS. the Superadios I and II beat all my radios except the Pana RF2800 in FM reception ! (They are just a tiny bit better than the Sony ICF-5900 (my second best FM receiver), the Pana RF-2800 is still the champion because it has less background noise. The superadio III is just "normal" on FM (Less than all of them)
For your consideration...the FERRITE LENGHT in the Panasonic RF-2600, Sony ICF-5900 and the Superadios is almost the same but the performance.

Huesby, fantastic info. I'll post it when I get home. Thanks. Jeff

Now if I could only compare the SRII to my Panasonic RQ.

Huesby

Many years ago I had that recorder..good sound and radio but a simple AM circuit.
The SR I and II have a very elaborate RF circuitry, and a 3 set of plates in the variable capacitor ! (Most only have 2 sets) I haven´t seen that in all my years repairing radios. The Terk Loop Antenna doesn´t improve the reception of the SR I and II like it does for the others. The AM Reception in the SR´s is like having a ICF5900 with the loop antenna.

Jeffrey McMahon

Thanks for the info. That SRII AM must be sublime if it's better than the Panny RQ.
