The response from these two posts was pretty overwhelming.
I don’t actually check the SWLing Post viewer stats that often, but I was too curious: together, those two posts amounted to well over 20,000 unique pageviews in two days!
Obviously, I’m not the only radio nostalgic person around here!
These posts resonated so well, I didn’t want readers’ favorite models to be lost in the comments section. I decided to comb through the comments, make a list of all of the models, and link to sites and pages with more information and photos.
This is an interesting collection of radios since some are benchmark performers, while others much less so. Many were listeners’ first radios–the ones we cut our teeth on.
I would encourage you to read through the comments on our first and our second posts. Many great memories in there!
Below, you’ll find the full list of radios in alphabetical order, starting with receivers then moving to transceivers:
Many thanks to everyone who shared their favorite radios! I truly enjoyed checking out each of these models as I listed and linked to them. There were a number of unique models I had never seen before and many I had completely forgotten (like the Sony ICF-SW1000T)!
If you have more favorite models to share, feel free to comment here or on the original posts!
