A cheaper route ($58.50 delivered) by the same seller is on eCrater, which is where many of us have just picked one up:


We have had contact with the seller, and he seems like a very good e-seller.


Kevin, thanks for the link to the ecrater site. That is a great price. Do you know of anybody who has received a radio from the seller and tried it out? I'm mostly curious to hear how the AM compares to the Grundig G8.

BTW, I called Sangean yesterday and they indicated a major upgrade of the ATS-909, called the 909X, is coming in 2010.


I think I found answers to my questions about the D96L's performance. I went to hard-core-dx.com and found it at the following link: http://www.hard-core-dx.com/article.php?story=20090730061611644&mode=print Sounds like a good performer with some good features that are missing from the G8. If the price is really $58.80 shipped from ecrater.com, I may just buy one.


A deal break for me regarding this kchibo is- if I´m not wrong- this set uses propietary rechargeable battery pack instead of ordinary batteries...that´s sounds no good in my case..


The battery is the same as a Nokia BL-5C. This is a fairly standard Nokia battery. I have a couple of them laying around, plus a Nokia phone that can charge them. I was worried about this as well until I found out that the battery is a BL-5C. I can keep an extra battery charged and ready for going on trips.

I contacted the seller through ecrater.com and he responded promptly with answers to my questions. I ordered one this morning!


The price on the D96L has now jumped from $58.80 shipped to $51.10 plus $17.60 shipping. The seller told me before I bought mine that he would be selling one more at the $58.80 price including shipping before the price would be adjusted. I purchased the last one for the lower price. I feel lucky.

I just found the Yahoo Ultralight DX group, and am finding it good reading. Much of my DXing would probably fall into the ultralight category (or crystal radio DX).



A thorough review of this item would be greatly appreciated. I'm always on the lookout for the perfect travel/alarm/sleep radio.


yeah a lot of mainland electronics are using the nokia batteries. like the Astak ebook reader.. the new AA?
