      Comments about RadioShack® AM/FM/WX Table Radio:

      This radio has awesome features, good sound, and good reception.

      I bought one for my father. He left it out on the covered carport in the cold (around 32F and no rain), just as he's done for years with his previous radios. After one night in the cold, it wouldn't turn on until it warmed up for about 10 minutes. This happened every time he left it out in the cold. When he brought it inside for a while, it would turn on with no problem. So we exchanged it for a new one at the same store. Exact same problem. Then we ordered a 3rd one from RadioShack.com. Same problem. Keep it inside, and it works great. Let it get cold, and it won't turn on. This is very disappointing because electronics shouldn't fail to work when the temperature drops below freezing, but he's keeping the radio because it's so nice otherwise.

            Comments about RadioShack® AM/FM/WX Table Radio:

            This radio is great for my needs. It has very good reception - both the FM & weather bands (I don't use AM), operational functionality, it isn't heavy & bulky, nor is it fragile & tinny sounding.

            I've used it in several locations around the house, as well as outdoors, and it works great either plugged in or under battery power. Don't pay any attention to that review stating it drained the batteries in 1 day - use good batteries and it does just fine ! It actually gets better reception around my home than the other 3 portable radios I use. It pulls in 3 weather bands, whereas my older weather radio only got 1 - sometimes 2. And it receives way more FM signals than any other radio in our home...

            If you want a small, portable radio to receive weather & standard stations this is the one. It isn't expensive, doesn't have any fancy gimmicks, and it does just what it's supposed to. Period !

              Comments about RadioShack® AM/FM/WX Table Radio:

              After much research, I finally chose this handy little unit to replace a GE Superadio we'd used for camping for the past 30 or so years. Since it was the slide bar that finally broke on the old one, we wanted a digital radio for exactitude of station set. It's not as big as our old one--certainly not as heavy--but it served us well on our recent camping trip. I love the fact that it easily can search for nearby signals, since we don't know station locations when we camp in a new location. It may not "reach" as far as our old radio, but I think it will serve us very well.

                I use this radio to go from room to room and the reception has been very good in any room I use it in, just move the antenna around to pick up the stations clearly. I listen mostly to the stations that broadcast on a lower signal and this radio has no problem picking them up. I dont have to move the antenna on any of the stronger signal radio stations. Both AM and FM work just fine. this is my first set of batteries in it, so I cant comment on the battey life at this time. I have a Sangean and a Grundig radio and this one is as equal with both of them. I would say try it, If it dosent work for you return it .

                    I was anxious to buy this radio as I listen to one all day while at work and cosmetically this unit looked fine. I was very disappointed once I unpacked it and tried it out, the unit is not good quality, the batteries last a day and reception is poor. I suggest you past this one by.
