Hi. There is a new, Sangean portable am/fm radio out now, for sale at JR Electronics. I was wondering if anyone had any opinions. It boasts a 200 mm AM ferrite antenna, for "unmatched am reception."

It is a stereo portable, about the size of a large paperback. It goes for about $85. It looks well-made, simple, easy to use, and the "unmatched am reception" is enough to pique my interest. Has anyone else seen this radio?

No, but I know the GE is famous for its am reception. Interestingly, the GE has a 200 mm ferrite am antenna, and so does the new Sangean pr-d5. I'd love to have a digital Sangean with the am reception of the GE.
