*Sigh*

So my old Sangean ATS-808 died.  One too many static discharges too close to it (despite disconnecting the external antenna).  It was a good shortwave, but I wanted something small and portable.  So I looked at reviews, and saw the Kaito KA1102 was a good rated radio.  At least, that's what the reviews said.

The one I received via UPS today was not.  No reception on any band, AM, FM, Shortwave, nothing came in.  Nothing but static, that is.  Very disappointing, considering how much I was expecting with this.  Apparently there has been some QA issues with the radios, and I probably ended up with a lemon.  Maybe the replacement will be better, but who knows?

Ah well... it's not like it's an expensive unit, like my Yaesu FRG-100...

*pout* I have a Grundig portable that I bought, I think from the Boeing Store, that has trouble picking up WWOZ. I haven't tried to pick up any shortwave with it, though.

I'm still trying to find my cord/charger for the Yaesu. It better turn up during my continued cleaning.

I usually listen online anyway. I hope I get a good netbook. :)
