Sangean Ships Portable Radio

The PR-D18 is an old-fashioned portable — the kind that was taken to the beach or a picnic decades ago.

It’s a single-speaker battery-operable AM/FM radio with a telescoping antenna that’s not much bigger than a palm. But it does have some modern updates.

Digital tuning works to receive stations and scan. There are five presets per band and an alarm clock function with a sleep timer and snooze button. A lit LCD screen provides information. When active, the headphone jack shuts the speaker off.

The PR-D18 operates on four AA batteries. An optional AC adapter is available. Price: $69.95.

Glad to see that somebody still makes a decent radio for you to keep in your 'storm cellar' when the power goes out. Wonder how long it will run on just battery power? A bit pricey, would be nice if it came with some 10year lithium batteries at that cost point. A 'digital' version would probably eat up the batteries in no time flat.

Hmmmm but no DRM or IBOC/HD capabilities. Digital transmission for radio sure is the wave of the future isn't it? But unless and until manufacturers MAKE the stuff, nobody is going to USE it.... Of course it would help if the standard actually worked, (neither DRM nor IBOC really do work as well as analog) but, since it doesn't, companies won't make equipment & listeners won't use it. Sigh
