Any ultra-small radios that come close to this in performance? I have one of these (Sony) and I like it, but I'm looking for another radio, ultra-compact but with a speaker and reasonable am/fm reception. Anything come to mind? 12 days ago
Well all I can tell you is that Sony may make something smaller, I don't know, but as far as performance you can't beat Sony. The last one I had I had for many years and in that time it was dropped and bounced on the floor numerous times and like that Timex commercial," it kept on ticking" without a problem. I have a bigger Sony unit with speakers that has excellent sound but it's not ultra compact, 12" high by 11" across. Sorry, wish I could help better.
I don't know about reception in the car but I did get this for someone in a nursing home and it only picked up one local station- too much static in the building I guess,
Does anyone know if this radio works well for FM 99.5 in the Los Angeles/Palos Verdes area? My car radio does not work in certain areas on the hill. 25 days ago
When the car is moving, the radio signal is not good.
No, it does not. It's an AM/FM radio only. Receives only U.S. commercial broadcast signals. Believe you need a radio that has capability of receiving "shortwave" signals -- which are international.
