Kevin, Frankfurt am Main, Germany

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
What stations I can pick up are clear and the sound quality is good. The radio is well-made and pleasurable to use.
Bad points:
I bought this to listen to BBC World Service here in Frankfurt in Germany but the reception is exceedingly poor, if not non-existent. This is probably nothing to do with the radio, however.
