When I moved out to the country, I looked at what REI could offer me in short wave radio and I bought this:


It's nice, it gives me the weather, it can recharge batteries, and recently, I bought the extended antennae and AC adapter. Easy to carry, took it with the cats and I into the safe room during a tornado alert.

When I was buying the AC adapter on Amazon, however, I saw this:


which rather reminds me of the SW radio we had overseas when I was a teen. It was something like this (from Diamonds are Forever): Philips L6X38 T Transworld de Luxe Antoinette radio | Bond Lifestyle

Sigh, that was then, this is now.

So, does anyone know about these radios these days especially when one is out in the country without cable, without satellite?
