I returned the refurb PR-D4W and purchased a new one, directly from Amazon, which I received yesterday. I found the new one has very poor reception on the lower part of the AM band. With my PR-D5, the Simi Valley 530 kHz TIS station comes in pretty well, but on the PR-D4W it's mostly imperceptible mumbling down in the noise.

Today I tested the PR-D4W (Jay Allen 4.5 stars) versus my smaller PR-D7 (3 stars). The latter radio is much more sensitive on 530/540/550 kHz, which is the opposite of how it should be. Obviously, the new PR-D4W is defective. I can't recall another Sangean radio I've bought new that was defective. I did have one with a bad AC adapter, but that's it.

So Just came back from Tokyo. No more made in Japan radios to be seen. Sad.
I'm glad I still have my EX5 and 7600GR (but they can be had for a price lol) I hope the radio blog is back. I missed it.
