Not sure I've ever seen this model Panasonic before:

I love the design of this one, and would assume it's a good performer, it's a Panny, after all. A beauty, for sure.

These new radio on a chip things aren't half bad, but I never really had much use for a SW set without SSB. You're missing way too much of what's out there without a BFO circuit.
The AM/MW and FM are just about always better on one than a regular superhet, though...when it comes to pocket radios that is.
But he's right, they do tune weird. However the steps are apparent and you can tune by ear.
I haven't tried any of the rigs mentioned in the article, but I do have one of Rat Shack's new pocket radios (AM/FM) that uses that type of chip, and I like it quite a bit.
