Seems to be a re-badged KK-939b, made by the "king of cheap radio" Kchibo

Thanks for the review, Angelo. I'm surprised the Bigsos is actually a decent performer at such a low price.

There is a new ShouYu now for only $15. (!) from ebay seller "bigbargainonline." Has AM, FM, SW and USB input for playing Mp3s. http://tinyurl.com/mmqomft

I had one of these little ana-digi cheapies years ago, on the JWin brand; I'd take the cable from my roof mounted television antenna and attach it to the whip, listen to Vatican Radio in Southern California on this dinky little $15 radio, fun stuff. It was the band selector slide switch that eventually proved to be the weak point on that copy - the indents become worn over time and the radio becomes less able to hold the band/frequency you're trying to select. The only other issue was the speaker, which could reproduce the fingernails-on-chalkboard background whistles and whines with annoying clarity, glad to see they've since thought to include a "dog whistle off" tone switch..

Angelo - Some radios need their buttons to be pressed longer than normal to activate. The CCRadio-SW (Redsun RP2100) is one example. I guess this is due to the timing in the radio's software. You might try just pressing the buttons longer rather than harder on your new radio to see what happens.

Angelo

Gary: I will try that. I've been keeping the radio in my office but brought it home to try shortwave and forgot to bring it in this morning. I'll try the button trick tonight.

Angelo

Keith: Is this $50.00 Shou-Yu similar at twice the price???
