Unpacking the PL-390:

My Tecsun PL-390 arrived from Kaito Electronics USA on Thursday. It had obviously been opened before. I have heard other bad news from people ordering radios from Kaito Electronics USA (via Amazon). I do not mean to slander the Kaito company, but the best bet yet may be to order via eBay's excellent seller Anon-Co, in the name of QC.

Ron,

I just received my 660 yesterday and have no hiss at all on FM, just a clear, clean, surprisingly robust audio. Ditto the AM and SW bands. It is really a fine, fun little radio and the sensitivity is incredible, MUCH more than I expected. An oldies AM station in Vancouver (WA) way north of where I live comes in very weakly if at all on almost all my other radios; on the 660, it is a booming, static-free 10. On SW, I actually get MORE stations with stronger signals than I do on my legendary Sony ICF-2010, something I never would have figured on. BTW, where do you live? Apparently on the West Coast. I have checked out your SW listening logs and, if you are on the West Coast, those are some good catches.
