AM Portables 2019 Update
It’s Here! The AM Portables Mega Shootout 2019 Update has just been posted. This is one of the most comprehensive performance ratings of portable AM radios anywhere and for 2019 dozens of new models have been added. I have carefully tested every one of these myself with the emphasis on actual performance, not just features, plus more radios are in house. Their reviews are on the way and will be added in the coming weeks and months. New entries include new models in current production and some vintage radios I have acquired over the past year.
In addition, I am continually re-evaluating many of the classics and have made subtle adjustments to some of their relative rankings. Although these rankings are based primarily on AM performance, I have added more comments regarding FM and SW performance to give a clearer picture of how particular radios compare overall.
As always feel free to email me with questions or comments:
