Radio Reviews

I have reviewed numerous radios over the years, taking into account their performance for DX purposes.  Click on the links below to view my radio reviews.

Sangean HDR-14, 12/22/2018

The Sangean HDR-14 is great for travel and is a solid performer with RDS and HD Radio capabilities on both the FM and AM bands.

Airspy R2, 8/6/2017

I finally jumped on the software-defined radio bandwagon by reviewing this spectacular radio, which although analog-only, rivals the Sony XDR-F1HD in multiple ways.

Insignia NS-HDRAD2, 5/18/2017

This small HD Radio is great for traveling and is just like its little brother the Insignia NS-HD01 in terms of reception and performance.

Sony XDR-S10HDiP, 4/28/2015

The Sony XDR-S10HDiP is identical under the hood to the Sony XDR-F1HD in terms of reception and performance, but it has several differences like having built-in speakers.

Insignia NS-HD01, 4/10/2013

Akin to a small MP3 player, the HD Radio-capable Insignia NS-HD01 is great for pocket reception and traveling.

Sony XDR-F1HD, 5/18/2008

Arguably one of the best radios ever produced for DXing and one of the first commercially-available HD Radio receivers, I take a hands-on approach with my review of this powerhouse radio.
