Excellent article, thanks Thomas, and thanks Jeff for posting it.

It confirms my descion to use my Tecsun PL380 for travel (although I'm not sure why you indicated it was AM only). The ETM feature is it's most valuable "plus" for me. If I'm only in a place for one night/morning, in less than 5 minutes I have all the local stations programmed in, for news,weather, music, sports or whatever. And if want to DX a little or listen to SW, I can do that too.

The G6 is a nice little radio, but without the ETM feature it comes up short for travel for me.

Thanks again.

In this context, when Thomas says AM only he means the radio doesn't have single sideband (SSB). He's referring to the AM mode, not the AM broadcast band.

Gary, thanks for the earthquake info. I ended up switching to State Farm and to a rate of about 700 per year with a 41K deductible, far better than my now former company. And yes I got the CEA program you mentioned.

I'm glad it worked out better for you, Jeff.

Thanks for the AM clarification Gary. I figured I was missing some obvious point.

Thomas

Ken, Thanks for pointing the "AM only" note. I'm such a shortwave geek, I never think outside the realm of AM and SSB. :)

I changed it to read "SSB only"--that would be confusing to many.

You will be quite pleased with the PL-380. It is an amazing, bullet-proof little travel radio. Sensitivity and selectivity are most impressive. Plus, at that price, even if you lose it in travels (or give it away to a kid--which I've also done) it's inexpensive to replace.

Cheers,
Thomas
