Happy Birthday to the Sony ICF-2001D / ICF-2010

Sony ICF2001D Posted by Hello

The Sony ICF-2001D / ICF-2010 is 20 years old in 2005, probably the best analogue portable world-band receiver ever made. You can still find it in some shops, though it was officially discontinued in the US in 2003. I'm just copying the first review I made of the set ...on Media Network 17th January 1985.

Still a great radio. You can often find used ones on ebay. The first radio that really made shortwave worth listening to.

I bought mine a week after it was released and I still have it. Still works fine, too.
