      My son is quadriplegic and has limited use of his hands. This is the only radio that he can control without assistance. It's lightweight and small -- just perfect for his needs. He can listen to his favorite sports and music on his schedule. THANK YOU for continuing to provide this product.

            very good radio so far, got it few days ago so far very impressed. i used to use the sony ICFS10MK2. it was ok but not durable On the radioshack one, the am/fm reception are alot clearer and the sound does not have any hissing, plus the headphone jack is stereo not mono like the sony one. Radioshack by far the best

              I was looking for a simple AM/FM portable radio with great reception and sound. This is it. I bought the Sony ICF-S10 MKII to make a comparison and the 12-586 had better sound and much better reception.

                  I don't understand why so many reviewers finds this radio an excellent buy. The sound through the tiny speaker is horrible and tuning to stations is a challenge. I guess the old saying remains true... you get what you pay for!
