What a great radio! This thing is really clear and selective on FM (don't use much) and on AM, it has a surprisingly hot receiver. It picks up almost as many stations as my CC Radio EP. Sure, it doesn't have all the fine-tuning gizmos as the EP or nearly as big an AM antenna, but I can routinely listen to stations from: Winnipeg, Minneapolis, Denver, Nashville, Cincinnati, Chicago, Dallas etc... on the ICF-38. (I live in IL.) I love the feel of the radio, too. The tuning dial has a really high-quality feel (no backlash at all). There is no part of this radio that feels cheap. This was proven when my wife accidentally knocked off a 51/2 foot tall shelf onto our hardwood floor yesterday. I heard the radio hit the floor in from the basement and assumed it was a goner. Amazingly, the radio won the battle with the floor! Works fine - not a scratch! (I can't say the same for the floor...) Audio quality is wonderful for a relatively low-tech radio of this size. And the tone control switch really helps when listening to distant AM stations. Great emergency radio, too. I can fit an extra set of 4 AA batteries in the back compartment with the cord. DEFINITELY my favorite radio for the price. The unit is the definition of the phrase, "bang-for-the-buck"!

I have an older model Sony portable radio and like it a lot. So, when it came time to purchase another one, I again turned to Sony. This is not a bad radio, but it is a major technoligical step backwards from the older model. This one has analog tuning. Sony should no longer make any radio without digital tuning. In addition, unlike my older Sony, this one has no presets, and no weather band. Sony products should become more technologically advanced with each new offering, not go back to what they sold my parents.

    Comments about Sony® iCF38 Portable AM/FM Radio:

    I bought this as an emergency radio because it is battery powered. It is your basic AM/FM radio. I didn't want one with a cd player. Just so I could pick up local station during bad weather. Works Great

    Great Radio

    Comments about Sony® iCF38 Portable AM/FM Radio:

    For the price, couldn't get a better radio. It picks up stations much better than our old radio did. Very satisified with purchase.

    Great radio, good dimensions for portability,can tune into satellite stations with limited range to satellite tuner. (listen to my sirius channels on my patio outside).Unbelievable price for what you get.
