Didn't Thompson Electronics buy the RCA name (at which point things slid uncontrollably downhill)? I thought Thompson was located stateside? I know the radios are manufactured in China, but I thought Thompson still owned RCA----or did they sell the name again to the Chinese? In either case, I've read elsewhere that this particular radio went from very good to a junkbox while Thompson was in charge.

Thompson is a French consumer electronics company that bought RCA's radio/tv business. That was how things were, at least, years ago when the deal went through. I don't know if things have changed since then.

GE bought RCA, then Thompson bought GE.

I bought a RCA Superadio 3 in hopes I would get the "luck of the draw".... No such luck. It was hard to tune, it HAD to have AFC turned on to even function, and the speaker had a distortion on talk radio. I ordered a used GE Superadio 3 on E-Bay for $30 (scratches and all) and I am listening to it as I type this... Incredible sound, great reception, and AFC is a bonus, as opposed to a necessity. This is my favorite portable so far. The differences between the two are clearly pronounced, and the RCA version is quite inferior to a once grand product.
