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.
