I am Jeff McMahon. I teach college English, I'm married to a middle school English teacher, and we have a "rescue" dog, Gretchen, with special emotional needs, though I imagine we're now just as dependent on Gretchen as she is on us.
Interests: power yoga, combat conditioning, cars that possess the i've-got-to-have-it factor, vegetarian cooking, blissed-out naval-gazer and underground dream pop music, a few well-chiseled books. other website:

Yes, two bandwidths for AM and FM, so you get 10 preset each for a total of 20 AM/FM presets. The radio is easily worth the 65-69 dollar price tag.

I haven't figured out the "AM auto tracking" though I'm happy with the AM reception.
Gary, sorry, I meant the PR-D4.
Let me take that back. They DON'T take recharges. There is no switch for that. I read an Amazon review incorrectly. Sorry.
You can recharge the batteries in the PR-D7 but I am using non-rechargeables.
Using my cheap JBud 1 earbuds (under 7 dollars), the sound seems fine, just as good as on my Sangean WR-2.
Ed, I suspected the PR-D19 was part of the Sangean Muffled Series. I'm glad I didn't get it. The PR-D4W, in contrast, is well balanced from the one speaker, even less muffled than my now fried Sangean WR-2 (fried during power surge).

I was content to not buy a radio for a while since every room had a strong-performing radio, and my twin girls demonstrated a tendency to bend antennas and knock over the radios, chipping them and in some cases cracking... Continue reading

Bill, thanks for the info. Is the single-outlet for only one device? Or can I plug a mutli outlet to the single? I ask because I have a lot of electronics and a single outlet wouldn't be practical.
Thanks, Tim. BTW, I coiled the wire antenna from my fried WR-2 to the base of the PR-D4's telescopic antenna and elevated the other end to the window blind. FM is now triple power.

A. Black, Your correct on all counts. I decided to use it as my bedside radio after all. Tim, I bought this because you told me about it, after which I investigated it and it met the specs I wanted. It is a great performer.
