I just noticed that the price for the TIVDIO V-115 has been lowered to $19.99 US shipped on Amazon.com.
Click here to read our previous reviews of this radio. At this price, it would make a great stocking stuffer!
Through 11:59 P.M. on 12/13/17, C. Crane is offering 50% off their popular SoftSpeaker & SoftSpeaker2. These are “pillow speakers” with soft, washable covers – great for listening while drifting off to sleep.
For the SoftSpeaker, use this promotional code: PS17
For the SoftSpeaker2, use this promotional code: SSV17
I must admit, I don’t own either but I’ve often thought about purchasing version 2 because it has in-line volume control. This would be a great time to try them!

Is this a receiver designed by MacGyver? The 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: https://www.ebay.com/itm/TOSHIBA-RP-2000F-Shortwave-Radio-Full-88-108-FM-Dial-Great-Cosmetic-Condition/253300518829
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!
