Skip to comments.Looking for good digitally tuned radio with clock
Posted on 01/06/2016 7:58:02 PM PST by West Texas Chuck
Every couple of years I have a temper fit and smash a clock radio with my 22 oz. ball peen hammer.
We just lost another one tonight. I sent the most recent one to Hell, with a nice taste of my anger.
My wife will thank you all for a solid recommendation.
I like to lay in my bathtub and read, and I like to be able to see what time it is. A huge part of my interaction with the local AM radio waves involves listening to various talk radio dudes, maybe a podcast or two fed from my phone, and when I get static or keep having to retune it just pisses me off.
I want a digitally tuned radio, with a clock display I can see from the tub under the current lighting setup, that does not piss me off. I need clear reception, the kind you get from a digital tuner, all these crappy dial-tuned POS things I get from WalMart are not within the scope of this project. They will all end up in Hell.
I want a nice clock radio and I'm willing to spend more than $10 if the product works properly. Something with a reasonably small footprint. Someone please point me in the right direction.
My marriage may depend on it. She Who Must Be Obeyed is tired of listening to me cuss at the top of my lungs and smash the snot of of the crappy devices I have owned so far, out on the back porch.
I guess that gets old, from her perspective. Please, help me save my marital bliss and still listen to the facking radio in my bathroom.
Call the local high school and ask if they have any teenage Mohammeds needing extra credit project
Great sound. Good, clear digital display. Mine will also play CD's. You can set it up to wake you with an alarm, radio, CD, whatever. And if you choose music, it doesn't just start out at a high volume, but slowly rises so as not to shock you awake.
It was $500 back in the 90's. I don't know if the price has gone up or down since then, but I think it's been worth it for how long it's lasted.
No, we done got rid of Clockmed, he moved back to the Middle East.
I’m guessing the blue LEGO alarm clock my wife bought that goes off at 5 AM even on weekends is not what you’re looking for.
Like to borrow your hammer though.
I actually have one, it is too big for my needs.
So far :)
Lammyno bro, I can point you in the right direction.
I am a hammer freak.
I would ask Ahmed the clock boy but it might explode.
That stoopid punk was from Iriving, about 10 miles from where I sit.
May the fleas of a thousand Iranians infest his pubic hairs.
Boston Acoustics Receptor.
Nice, but that may be a little out of my price range :)
This might work, tho:
Yes the MICRONTA63-765A with Large Red Digital Display Alarm Clock w/Battery Backup would be an excellent choice .
WTC, when I first read your post, I thought you were somewhat of a madman, lol. But, then I read your page. You’re a funny guy. You should write a book or something.
you might try heath kit- build it yourself
You should switch to taking showers.
GET A SANGEAN!!!!! We have a shower radio from them, excellent, I’d say get that one but we really haven’t used it since Hurricane Sandy and I can’t remember if it’s got a clock.
We also have a FABULOUS table top alarm clock from them. I love it because it has BOTH a digital clock and an analog clock, also 4 alarm settings, 2 music, 2 buzzers. It also has snooze and nap settings but we really don’t use those. Yes, the radio is digital, that is to say you don’t use a dial to tune it in.
I love both these radios very much and highly recommend this brand to you. I’m sure they will have a device that meets your needs.
Whoa, they still in business?
I built a few of their projects, many years ago.
For some reason AM and FM reception is difficult in my house. We live in a large town, no more than 5 miles from a 50k AM station but got static, and the FM station we wanted, forget.
The nice Sony clock radio we had just couldn’t cut it.
After much internet research I settled on a Sangean RCR-22.
Excellent radio,, excellent reception AM and FM . Pulls in the stations we want no problem.
And the clock keeps time w/ WWV.
Check it out.
Sangean makes great radios.
