Is this a receiver designed by MacGyverThe Toshiba RP-2000F was a portable radio designed for the 1970s Japanese BCL (Broadcast Listener) and is not often seen on the used market.

A fine example of this model is on the USA Ebay site right now:


The $495.00 starting price is steep, but probably inline with the radio’s rarity and condition. Do any SWLing Post readers have first-hand experience with this model? How does it perform? Let us know in the comments below!

      Absolutely agree.
      For $450 I would rather setitle for a new LCD big Screen TV- especially at this time of lock down.
      What a lots of sellers don’t realise is we want bargains for old stuff that still works. This isn’t vintage like a 1935 valve radio. It’s just some old Japanese junk.
