Great performance and ease of operation is what you get from this powerful AM/FM hand held transistor made by Panasonic in the late 70’s. At 4.25″ tall and 3″ wide, it’s big enough to sound nice but small enough to take anywhere. This radio is unique because it features gear reduced Vernier tuning, a real plus for the DX’er. The round tuning dial glides from station to station, and this radio really pulls them in. It operates on 2 AA batteries and has a strong telescoping antenna. Nothing flimsy here. Looks like it was designed for teens. This one has a small chip on the bottom that you may have missed, but no worries. Nice clean radio.
