Do you remember the old days of Radio Shack? Back in the day they were my go-to store for many electronic items, even less costly ham radio gear. Today the company is in my view just a shadow of what is was thirty years ago. Radio Shack is hanging on by just a few threads. This radio is actually new, just out of the box. I bought it more for it’s nostalgia than anything else but the cheap little radio works very well actually. Visit what’s left of the company here.
