Panasonic RF 2200 used I traded a friend months ago

National / Panasonic RF-2200, Handheld HF/VHF Receiver

I obtained an RF 2200 Panasonic radio from a friend and despite the age and lack of a strap (I made one out of old items that is better than the original one rather than pay for a used one) This is one of the best AM,FM,SW, radio I have ever listened to and is still on frequency with a slight bit of alignment I decided it needed! An excellent receiver I must say! Many happy hours of use and I only got it a few months ago SW is not quiet as accurate as a digital but I prefer to use a non digital as its what I had before (included home brew) Thanks National Panasonic Renegade
