Better reception than digital radio

RCA RP7887 is similar to an older model General Electric radio I owned for years. Even though the radio has an older analog tuner, FM reception is clear and much better than a digital receiver I had in my office. I had intened to use the RCA RP7887 in my garage and yard, but the superior clear reception of this radio made me install it in my home office and move my digital radio to the garage. The RCA PP7887 radio runs on 6 D cell batteries or 120 volts house current. NO EXTERNAL POWER ADAPTER IS REQUIRED. Since we are entering the height of hurrricane season, I am delighted to own this power house radio with such clear reception at such a low price.

Not what I expected.

Wanted a loud radio for the Job Site. This radio will not hold a station, Its as if the dial slowly creeps out of the signal range. Constantly readjusting the dial just to keep a clear signal. If left alone it will lose the station all together. Volume is horrid at best. Even when plugged in if you turn the volume up past half way it distorts really bad. I have a C Crane explorer with only a 2 inch speaker that sound better and is louder than this ...thing iv wasted my money on.

crystal clear reception

exactly what I was looking for in a long distance radio...great sound with the bass and treble controls...

Not up to old GE 7-2880 Superadio standards.

I have an original GE 7-2880 Superadio, and had hoped that this model would be at least equal. No way. This RCA model is harder to tune, receives fewer stations, and has a "cost improved" cabinet. Better than many radios on market tody, but... I will return it.

Bad off/on switch

This is the second of these radios that I have purchased. I got rid of the first one because of the poor operation of the on/off power switch. When I saw this one advertised as version III, I assumed that the switch had been improved. I was wrong! I am disappointed that the switch was not improved....and now I am stuck with the same problem that existed on the initial one that I bought.

Exceeded my expectations

I work at a lot of remote job sites and can't pick up some of my favorite radio stations with a regular radio ( I tried several different models.) When I got the super radio III and tried it out, I was very surprised at the number of stations I could receive and with great clarity and fantastic sound. I highly recommend this radio if you want something for remot areas.

It's not my old GE Super Radio II

I purchased the RCA Super Radio III hoping it would meet the quality of it's predecessor GE Super Radio II. Sorry to say that it did not! The reception was poor and no way near the audio quality of the GE. RCA cheapened the standards that was set forth by GE. It is not worth purchasing if you want decent audio quality without raspy reception.

Not up to expectations as advertised

This Radio was Advertised as a "Long Distance" reception Radio, But was NO Better than the average Radio, Even tried hooking up an External Aerial as suggested, but that was no help. I live in the Mountains and reception is poor for Most Radios, What Happened to the Good Old, Tube Radios ?.. Returning this Radio Today.

excellent radio

I am replacing a radio that looks the same but it had the stamp of GE that I had for years and dropped it. I hope this one that has RCA gives me the same service. The large speaker is why I like this radio so well.

Good for pulling in distant stations

Great Radio!On one particular AM station,820,WBAP,110 miles away,equal to my Bose radio .Just a 15 min test!
