That thread was non-substantive.

But then - since you're so damn smart and all - you knew that. Putz.

I remembered reading another thread about the sharper image radio, so I fished it out in the hopes it would be helpful.

But you seem to have a fine future ahead of you as a troll.

Of course my dear friend - still nothing to add from you. Nothing
but trash. You're keeping well with your prior postings.

Consider who is selling the radio. I've looked at several of their
radio offerings in the past, and they seem to all have a lot of glitzy
good looks but mediocre performance. My image of a radio from Sharper
Image is that off a wannnabe. Either a plastic cased cathedral radio
lookalike with boomy audio, or a boxy military looking radio with
inexact analog bandspread and shrill audio.

If you are looking for a good shortwave radio, then I would depend on
Passport to WBR as well as sites like Radiointel, Eham and others that
post reviews and this news group for opinions. There are some real
gems coming out of China right now...of which the Degen radios are
good examples. There is also a lot of junk. Do some reading and
don't just depend on one review.

The Sharper Image is a retail outlet specifically
tailored to people who fell into money thru
plain old dumb luck thru on effort of their
own, or those Volvo and Subaru driving suburban
mansion dwellers who are too busy trying to keep
up with their neighbor's toy inventory. You know
the type, the people who peek thru
the lace curtains with their contorted faces and
try to find fault with their neighbor's color of paint
on their house or their choice of landscaping.

In short, it's a place where people who would never
be seen setting foot into a Walmart or a Radio Shack
but will go to places like Sharper Image, Lord & Taylor
or similar retail stores to pay 2 to 4 times what any
normal person would pay for (similar or same) Chinese
made crap.

I give The Sharper Image a hearty thumb's up!
Just like The Cracker Barrel ole Country
Store, Brookstore, and other types of
similar stores, they prove that P.T. Barnum's
timeless maxim is still alive today.....

after reading the online manual, I find it an interesting radio but
note that it doesn't have an antenna jack. probably would overload if
you hooked up a longwire to the whip. it is "complete" coverage but
didn't see speaker size.

probably not a serious radio but it could be a fun one. don't think I
would spend $80 for it but maybe with a $50 off coupon, you could get
two for $55 each ?

I hope you're not referring to their FOOD! Nothing pretentious there.
Killer pot roast, fair prices. And the pure maple syrup - a little pricey
but goood.
