Has continuous wide band adjust for AM and long range reception.
The C Crane was created to fill the void left by the discontinued GE Superadio series. It looks like a good choice. I borrowed a GE Superadio 2 which
was amazing. I own a Superadio 3 -
which is very good, but not as good
as the Superadio 2. I also had a
Radio Shack clone which was only
fair. I hated it at the time and trashed
it. 20 or so years later I regret that. It
might have still been useful during
a power outage or whatever.
I think RCA made a GE Superadio 3
clone for a while. Physically identical
to the SR-3 - - it was said to
be inferior. I don't know the
fine points involved there.
The Superadios and it's
clones have a gigantic
following and a fascinating
history. There was even a
Superadio with a digital display.
Very few were made. Apparently
it was a bad performer because
it was discontinued almost
immediately after it got out
to the shelves in the stores.
I just decided to replace the
6 D cells in my SR-3 yesterday.
Be sure to pay attention to the
battery voltage/condition in these
great radios folks. A friend of mine
lost a beautiful Sony
ICF-2010 to dreaded
NOISE AND STATIC RADIO
