SANGEAN PR D3 is the same radio as the CCRANE radio with very minor changes, this is how Sangean makes money by not reinventing the wheel.

The color scheme is pretty cool, though I suppose it's not everyone's cup of tea. A close look at the unit reveals that it has LW, but not WB nor 2m Ham Band. The addition of LW makes perfect sense, as does the omission of WB (which would not be used in Europe). It is unfortunate that the 2m band isn't offered; though I suppose it has to do with the deletion of WB.

It would be really cool to be able to have this radio and the CCrane side by side to compare them.

According to Sangean European website, this black/yellow model is called PR-D3LCU(http://www.sangean.eu/products/product.asp?mid=122&cid=5). It looks identical to the conventional PR-D3L which seems to be more comparable to the old CCRadio plus rather than the newer CCRadio 2.

There are two important differences between the PR-D3L (or Roberts R983 in the UK) and the CCRadio plus - there is no 1kHz tuning step and there are no external antenna terminals on PR-D3L, which severely downgrades its potential as a DX machine.

Yikes! Look at them yella knobs! lol

I don't know if I like that or not, but it sure does stand out. I agree, Bob. It would be interesting to get a side by side comparison on them.
