Bernadette asked: Please advise me on a radio that picks up am stations at night without much static or fading. I do not have internet service, and I need it to be under $200
There are radios that advertise improved reception on the AM radio bands, but you can get just as good a result, most of the time, with an improved AM antenna or some simple radio position tips.
The $85 C Crane CCRadio-EP features a Twin Coil Ferrite antenna that is adjustable for maximum sensitivity. Furthermore, it allows a connection to an external antenna so you can get even better reception.
