« Interference May be the Cause of Compromised SW on the Grundig G8 | Main | Radio Russ' Review of the General Electric P-780 AM-Only Radio »

Glad to hear one of these lunchbox radios giving good AM reception. Maybe Sangean didn't forget that some of us actually listen to AM from time to time.


Thanks for the review, Jeff. I guess you got your Lunchbox shortly after my earlier post. I think I'll pick one up.

I'm glad the AM performance is to your liking Jeff. I'm in a fringe area and I couldn't get certain stations on the LB-100 as clearly as with the U3 but I am in no way unhappy with the AM performance. The AM sensitivity was even better outside I found. I also think there is some variability from radio to radio which could be caused by a lot of things. I see we agree that the FM performance is identical to the U3.

I used mine outside all day while listening to a variety of AM and FM stations and it performed extremely well on all of them. This thing can really pump out some good sound for its size.

If you don't need a headphone jack or aux port, you can't go wrong with the LB-100. I actually like its look more than the U3's.


I'm very happy to hear that it's basic and designed for a specific use. Too many things in general (cars, radios, cell phones, etc.) try to be all things to all people. For true radio hobbyists, we're going to have several radios anyway---so one radio doesn't have to have every feature and do everything. It's a worksite radio---no headphones required or recommended. No clock? No problem. People wear watches or carry Blackberries which have the time. It sounds like the LB-100 is very good at what it is. That's enough.

Here you go...the working man's/poor man's LB-100.
"Denver" (I'm sure by way of China)

This radio is designed to be used in a construction environment, no headphone jack or aux port, no problem.

Sangean will sell a ton of these lunchbox radios.

I'm with Angelo on this one!
