I find that the Grundig G8 II does everything this radio was planned to do and more. Plus the Grundig is only $50.

Hmmmm....I wonder if this could be considered a "shovel ready project" that the stimulus package will address. Maybe CCrane or the manufacturer can go to the Obama administration or Congress for a couple million bucks to hire Engineers.

If only the radio were a piece of junk, I'm sure they could. Afterall, why shouldn't we feel sorry for a poor helpless little radio that doesn't work? Why not throw a few million at it, just to show we're sensitive, that we care and feel its pain.

You're missing the point.

The drill would be that Goldman Sachs' structured products division initiates a lethal short-selling raid on the shares of electronics manufacturers, pockets the proceeds, and then handles the federal government bailout of the manufacturers with taxpayer money, taking a controlling equity stake in them at a rock-bottom price. Privatized gains, socialized losses. A few millions of these billions - scarcely lunch money for the Goldman elite - is then discreetly donated to charismatic politicians who make progressive-sounding speeches, but who in practice enrich a small, politically connected financial elite at the expense of the taxable middle class. The poor? Well, they've got all those nice speeches to listen to.

They break your legs, charge you for a pair of crutches, and then say, "See? Without us, you wouldn't be able to walk."

If CCrane starts throwing money at ACORN, I have a feeling they'll get that stimulus money.

And for the 472nd time, CC Crane doesn't develop ANYTHING today Herc, they 100% outsource to Tecsun with what they want, and Tecsun does all the development, testing etc and then slap a CC Crane label on it and ship to the US.

CC Crane puts their badges on Tecsun, Sangean, etc. That's their business model.

burt

but if they didnt ask tecsun to make radios with 8" ferrites, nobody probably would in this day and age, so it cant hurt to support them

Jeffrey McMahon

Tecsun doesn't make 8'' ferrites as far as I know, but Sangean does in their PR-D5 and C.Crane CCR-2.

Angelo

But Burt's point is still well taken---at least CCrane pushes the Chinese factories to make serious radios. In the absence of that, we might really be stuck with junk here in 2009. I still like the old Zeniths and Japanese rigs from the 1970's into the 80's---and vintage German goods from that period too. They are better in most aspects then any $200.00 modern radio.
