redsun rf-1210 ordered

I've been watching with interest as Radiointel.com posted details about Redsun, a new shortwave radio manufacturer based in China. The other day, I happened to search eBay, and found that Liypn was selling the Redsun RF-1210. I dwelled on it for a day, and decided to get one. But when I checked, the sale was over!

I emailed Liypn and said that I was interested in this radio, and he wrote back to report that it was re-listed. So I bought one for a total of US $52.90. I'll share details with you once I receive it and load it with double-A times four.

That's like, eight As.

Their http://www.redsunelect.com/ProductShow_en.asp?ArticleID=112 model looks like a BCL 2000. Don't know the price? If they are trying to compete directly,dual-con. with a few presets,an in-jack, and a BFO would be inprovements.

Yep, along with bass/treble controls that are actually useful and clearer audio!

I have an unfinished BCL-2000 review in here somewhere...
