I received this fine radio today and I was concern that the sound would be low and not well to hear but I find the opposite the volume is great. Why, I have four stars is improvement design on the plastic handle can easily brake not very strong and I will in the future attach a rope. The second thing is the home power cord plug into the socket in back. It is easy to pull out of the socket from the radio. This radio is just been out only a year or two.2019.
