‘Tecsun PL118’ Pocket, FM-Radio — The BEST $13 Dollar Radio, Actually BEST $13 You Can Spend On Anything.
As I explained in this post, last week, for the last 10-months I have started listening to the radio during my 2-hours a day of walking/light jogging. Helps me deal with the time. I just listen to local FM stations — NHPR/NPR (on 89.1 or 90.1) and music. Nothing too esoteric. Now that the BBC doesn’t transmit on SW, I have no use, whatsoever, for SW.
I had bought a fake ‘Grundig’ from ‘Eton Corp.’ to meet my needs. It was a decent radio. Good reception. Good sound. But, it was big, heavy and bulky. I could carry it around but it felt like lugging a brick. Then I found this on Amazon. $13? I pay that much for exotic drinks at Chinese restaurants. I could afford $13. So, I got one.
Well, you can see my review. I was blown away and I am not the only one raving. It is not fancy. Just FM and basically manual tuning — albeit with the radio auto-locating all the available stations. The stereo sound with earbuds is beyond amazing.
If you are in the market for a great FM radio, check this out. You will not be dissapointed.
