For you who like to DX, I suggest this Sony Super Sensitive 9 transistor solid state portable to you. This small portable is big in performance, running on 3 “D” sized batteries and sporting a strong leather covered metal handle. Take it anywhere knowing it can produce a big enough sound to use outdoors. The gear reduced Vernier tuning makes tuning those tough to get stations easy. This radio even has a tone control switch that makes a minor change in the sound.
Performance wise, this is near perfect. Cosmetically, it is very nice with no damage but you will find a few specs of paint or something on the back.
