Our pocket radio is a real blessing when small size is important.

We combined ease of use, very good reception and sharp, well defined audio together in this little jewel of a radio. You can listen on the built-in speaker or the included high quality original CC Buds Earphones tuned for superior voice clarity and music. It has five, one touch memory buttons for each band and stands upright when needed. Rubber coated sides help with grip.

A much appreciated comment from a customer said it better than we could. "I am proud to own it (the CC Pocket Radio) partly because of the pride you must have in designing with such care."
Thank you from the C. Crane crew!

Best Darn Little Radio Ever
Darn thing is basically waterproof although they don't tell you that....just a great little radio.
None zero period...
Best Uses
Late light listening in the Jacuzzi or pool when you don't want a lot of that...
I think it would be great for your bug out bag as well...I might add one to mine although I have a good crank model in there right now.
Pros: Dropped this radio into my Jacuzzi twice. The first time I left it in the sun to dry for a few days...dried out and worked perfectly..second time no such luck...that fact that it survived the first dip and continued to work was astounding...the second time it happened I made the mistake of hanging it over the bad...ordering another right now.

Disappointed. Same fuzzy reception.
has a belt hook
Was really looking forward to getting better reception on KSCO over the hill. Good reception during the day. They must lower transmission power at night. This CCrane radio does not help at all. Same fuzzy reception as my 10 year old Sony walkman radio. Walkman is smaller and only 2 AAA batteries. Wish they still made it.

Best Uses
Better to use this devie as a radion and not a TV.
I am totally pleased with my CC Crane pocket radio. It is exactly what I was looking for, increased sensitivity to pull in distant AM stations. Not only does it have a good front end design it has features for increasing distant reception. This radio is 10 times better than any pocket radio I have used or table model. Only the radio in my 2012 Honda can pull in the stations I want. For specifics, I am about 70 miles away from Albuquerque. Any thing can receive the 100KW KKOB radio. But now I can get the 10KW KVIA and the 1KW KDAZ stations while walking thru my yard hoeing weeds.

Good Overall, some deficiencies
Good AM/MW reception for a true pocket radio
4/2.5 KHz audio selection useful for less static on weak AM (especially talk stations)
Decent FM/WX sensitivity/selectivity considering compromised antenna (earbud wire)
FM/WX bands on my unit has an audio distortion which sounds very much like an old mechanical clock ticking.
FM very susceptible to multipath distortion even in MONO mode
Best Uses
I have a CC-2E but it's just too big for some circumstances. The CCPocket comes close to it's performance and is a lot easier to carry.
The authorized vendor for CCrane may be sending me a replacement due to the FM/WX audio distortion that I described earlier. I'd be interested to know if other users experience this, or if the problem only occurs on my particular unit.

Disappointment to success
We live in a mountainous area where radio reception is poor at best. On the advice of a friend I ordered a CCrane internet radio. I am 75 and I am familiar with how to use a radio. You plug it in, turn it on and dial up a station. After reading the 40 pages of the instruction manual, much (most) of which I didn't understand, I was only able to set the clock and fiddle with the back-light brightness. After several days of failed attempts to make the radio work I decided to send it back for a refund and started to reconsidered my friendship with someone who would recommend such a complicated, frustrating device. So I called the 1-800 number and got Annette at CCrane to find out the return procedures. Before I even got started she wanted to know why I wanted to return the radio. She then asked me if I wanted her help to make the radio work and with her and my wife's help I am now keeping the radio it is wonderful! It gets the one station I want to listen to perfectly and I am even considering a second radio for my 99 year old Mother. A happy customer, thanks to a friend and two smart women, Tom Hitchcock

Have not found any dislikes in the time I have owned the radio.
Best Uses
We often lose our power during storms in our neighborhood. The weather channel is very convenient
I am nearly 69 years old and have listened to a transistor radio at nighttime since I was 12 years old. This radio is perfect for my use and the tone is excellent for me. I only use the earbuds but the regular speaker is noteworthy as well. This is an excellent product in my opinion.

CC Pocket Radio
Great radio! Keeps you up to date on weather and time. Or listen to the local stations for news or music. I'd rather have this and extra batteries than a hand cranked radio in an evergency.
Only the lack of a rubber coating and water resistant model. Yes I'd pay more for the extra durability.
Best Uses
Great for walking and listening to classic rock! Radios are more fun than smart phones! Emergency use when the lights go out and the wind is howling.
Great companion when the wind seems about to shake the tent to pieces and the scattered thunder storms happens to be the one over head.

I like the sleep feature and weather station.
Lots of little instructions for different functions but easy to figure out.
Best Uses
Listening to radio or alarm.
I spent online the last few months trying to find a small am/fm radio for listening around the house, cooking food, or when I am shaving, etc. I also like to fall asleep to the radio. I was surprised how portable radio don't seem to be sold anymore. I was concerned what I bought may be too small but the CC Crane radio is perfect. The sleep buton keeps my radio from playing all night, the alarm is loud/annoying enough to get me out of bed, and the radio works very well. I am very pleased. Too bad CC Crane doesn't sell HD radios. That would be nice! (Hint hint)

Great radio!
CCrane has made a number of great improvements over the Sangean Pocket radio that I had purchase from you years ago.
There are many changes too numerous to mention and all are very useful

Best Uses
I would recommend it anywhere one wishes to have portability and versatility in use for listening to radio stations. I have been able to receive almost twice the amount of stations since I purchase this radio.

Buying my third one today. Mine is used 12 hours per day. I use rechargeable batteries which last about 36 hours of play time - less play time than disposable batteries BUT I have been using the same 6 rechargeables for over 2 years. The 6 cost me 5$ at WalMart.
Speaker qualilty is not great. With headphones quality is fine. Tips over if you try to stand it up.

I have worn out the buttons owing to constantly changing stations.
Worth the money. Don't expect the reception or speaker quality from the larger radios.

Great for what I use it for
Best am and fm reception out of any other pocket radio I've tried.
Used this radio every day at work for about 4 months. It pulled in more stations with clearer reception than any other pocket radio I tried. After 4 months the volume knob broke and I was stuck with a radio that would only play loud. I couldn't open the radio up to fix it, but it was within the year warranty, so I sent it back to cc and they sent me a new one. battery life is around 40 hours, so i can't complain there. I now farm full time and listen to it on the tractor. I'm 50 miles away from a big city, but it pulls the stations in better than any other portable radio. Of course there are places where it fuzzes out, but that is to be expected with a radio of that size in hilly country, or in dips and coulees. Also, I accidently ran it over with the tractor on a gravel driveway and it didn't damage it at all! It has more presets than there are radio stations in this part of mt, and if I had to do it again I'd buy it.

very poor battery life- radio eats batteries
nice radio with several options and decent reception
battery life is poor. must remove batteries after each use or else the radio is dead the next time you want to use it
I probably would not purchase the same radio again due to the battery life issue I have experienced. Maybe I received a defective unit that constantly drains the battery even when the radio is turned off.

Definitely the best radio I have ever had the pleasure of owning. For its size, the CC Pocket has better reception and audio quality capabilities than I thought was even possible for a small radio. The CC Pocket really does fit in my pocket, and I walk around with it almost always. With my old radio I would have to hold it up in my hand in order for my favorite stations to even be received. With the CC Pocket, I can listen to all my favorite stations with extremely clear reception no matter where I am or how I am carrying the radio. Along with the exceptional audio quality of AM, FM, and WX stations, the CC Pocket has more features than I've ever seen on a small-sized radio. Everything, from the sleep timers to the alarm clock to the one-touch preset buttons, makes this radio the best I've ever owned. And it gets even better! The CC Pocket comes with a pair of CC Buds! At first I expected the included ear buds to be cheap in quality, like most other included ear buds. But no! The CC Buds are well made and deliver astounding audio quality for talk and sports radio. They are comfortable to wear, durable, and long enough to reach my pocket comfortably. This is important to me, as I am well above average height and often find earbud cords to be too short. I want to thank C.Crane for their excellent design and craftsmanship in creating this wonderful product! I could not be a more satisfied customer.

My review is based on the radio's use for about four months. My satisfaction is based on the radio's use in an area with a plethora of stations YOUR RESULTS MAY VARY. My last pocket radio was a Sony, FM/AM Walkman (circa 1988, hey! it still works) but the C.Crane is so much more compact.

Great reception.
Since I lost my first one while tilling a field. I did find it but ran over it with my tractor. Somehow it just slipped out of my pocket. I am going to make a little drawstring bag to hold my next pocket radio and attach it to my clothing as the clip won't hold it in a pocket when bending over.

I can carry this radio in my shirt pocket around the store with me so I don't miss my programs that I enjoy. We live in a low lying area 60 miles from my favorite station and work in a metal building and still get reception. Battery life better than expected. I could go on but I dont type well.
Can't think of one.
Best Uses
Easy to carry.
I put lithium batts in my first one and the volume faded to where I had to turn it up all the way and still didn't turn up enough. This was after over a year of everyday use. Will stick to alkaline from now on. If you are thinking of getting this radio DO IT.

This is my first Ccrane product I purchased and I tell you the CCrane pocket radio is one exceptional little radio. I love the way it feels when I have it in my hand to change stations. The sound quality is superb on AM,FM and weather band. At nighttime, I can pick up dozens of clear channel stations as far as Denver, St. Louis, Chicago, Nashville, New Orleans, Dallas/Ft. Worth and a few stations from Mexico and the sound as if it we're local. Depending on weather conditions. FM stations come out very good and with the included wire antenna the radio can pick up stations 60-80 miles away, same goes for NOAA weather stations. And I really like the Alert feature for Severe weather. Everything on this radio for me is perfect. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants a small pocket size radio with great reception. This one is for you. So Thanks again to CCrane for making this great radio!

Almost the Perfect Pocket Radio

Best Uses
The name says it all: Pocket Radio
Back in the 1970's I bought a small Sony transistor radio that I used with an ear piece while dog walking and when waiting for lunch to be served, for the bus to come, etc. It was okay except the tuning and volume knobs were on the side and they'd change when I'd stuff it in my pocket and sometimes the earphone would sometimes become unplugged, causing my pocket to talk to me and send me scrambling to silence it. The CC Pocket Radio remedies all this by providing preset station selection, push-button digital tuning, the ability to turn the speaker off, and most importantly, the ability to lock it all in. The volume control is in the top center and isn't bothered and is easy to adjust by reaching in my pocket. The only thing I'd change if I could would be to make it thin enough to ride in a blazer or suit coat jacket. Other than that, I this may be the perfect pocket radio!

High tech for an old song!
Ergonomic and easy to program and much easier to operate than anything in it's class. Routinely able to recieve distant stations even when atmospheric conditions aren't ideal. It's definitely a personal pocket radio-not a boom box-but real good at what it's meant for. IT IS better than advertised.
The FM/WX wire antenna may seem a pain at first-but a telescoping antenna just wouldn't cut it in everyday portable use-a small clothespin will easily allow you to coil the wire and/or attach it to your pocket
collar or a curtain. It takes some getting used to the tactile feel of the case but that goes away real quick when the whole thing fits in your smallest pocket and doesn't slip out of your hand (or your pocket) like the smooth plastic ones do.
Best Uses
Any time any place you need a small AM/FM/WX w/o any attachment to house & home & car!
My reception has been totally unexpected-not at all unusual to pick up stations 150-200 miles distant-almost unheard of with typical small portables....battery life is better than many others...but I still keep a spare pair ready. Worth it's price hands down! LOVE IT!

Speaker audio quality is OK, but far from the best feature of this radio. Audio - speaker or head phones - is articulate. No bass emphasis. I'd call this radio headphone sensitive if you're looking for audio quality. Its there, but not every headset is good/ best. The included ear buds are perhaps a very good place to start. There IS a difference between this and a $20 Pocket Radio, and the cost is justified.

This is a very well made radio. It exudes quality. I really wanted to like it. However, it gets poor reception - AM andy FM - through the speaker. Especially indoors. It comes with a wire antenna that you have to plug in to the headphone jack. It helps with reception. But still not great. This radio could use an extendible built in antenna. C.Crane, you have produced what is obviously the best built pocket radio available. Please improve its reception, especially for those of us that want to listen to it through the speaker. Indoors. Without having to hook up a dangling wire antenna to it. The reception on this radio should match its build quality - e.g., outstanding.

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Crane, Employees/Design Team: I received my order, and works much better than I thought. I had the impression that c.crane was more of an overpriced electronics boutique, however after reading reviews and description, I decided to buy this little pocket radio anyway. Now I see that it is worth every penny of the price I paid for it. So much thought was put into the design and circuitry. It would be hard to explain this on your website or in customer reviews, but it's obvious after playing with the features. Thanks for offering such quality at an affordable price.

Love almost everything about the radio. Only negative is there is a very annoying background hiss when using headphones, even with the volume all the way down. Of course, you only hear this in a very quiet room. So private listening at home is out for me. Sigh. But for walks it is great because of all of the outside road noise. Reception is surprising good on FM. On AM it is also amazing for it's size, as I can get Milwaukee, Chicago, and a lot of small power stations in the area DURING THE DAY. I have owned this radio for 2 years now. Maybe the latest models have had the hiss removed.

This radio has a lot of nice features such as presets, ability to fine tune a station, a soft rubber type outer coating. The disappointing part is the am reception. I bought this radio to replace an old Sangean DT400 that was getting pretty worn after several years of heavy use. The Sangean is a lot better in pulling in distant AM stations than the CC pocket radio. The CC is a nice radio but If AM reception is important in your purchase decision, get the Sangean.

Great feature set, poor battery life
I have mine for a year now, and while I love the features and interface (both superior to my Sangean DT-400W) it has a slight hiss when using any earphones (including top end $400 Monster Turbine Pro Coppers) while the DT-400W is hiss free. More importantly, the DT-400W will milk a set of batteries forever, while the CC Pocket eats them like candy. Mine will kill a brand new pair of Eveready lithium AAs in one month flat and I barely listened to it for more than an hour or two. It also dissolves alkalines with similar abandon. They seem to last a little longer, maybe two months with virtually no playing use. My Sangean DT-400Ws and DT-200 will go well over a year just sitting in a drawer and still show (and test) a full three bars (max) of battery power on their meter. If down to two bars, they still run for days of play time. The CC Compact, if down to two bars, will go dead in an hour. Either mine is defective, or the circuitry is poorly designed. Not ready for prime time unless this battery hog is fixed.

I purchased this radio so I could listen to Coast 2 Coast Am as I put my newspapers together every night. I am pleased thus far. I love the look and feel of the radio, and the sound is very good. I like having the weather radio feature as weather conditions are such a huge part of having a paper route. I'm not crazy about the headphones. They aren't comfortable. They do act as an antenna, which was necessary for picking up the AM station. Overall, I would highly recommend this radio.

Seems like I always have problems with CC radios.... on prior models, it was always the mini audio plug would break and I would lose sound on one or both of the channels.... happened on all three radios I bought from CCrane over the years. So I was apprehensive when I ordered the CC Pocket Radio.... First one worked well for almost a year and now, intermittently I lose volume control and must listen at full volume...(move my substitute GE headset off of my ears and can adjust the blasting volume through changing distance from my ear drums... bothers only the other people in the room who can also hear my audio) This will last a couple of days and then.... for some reason, works normally..... I like the radio and its capabilities, so I ordered another one six months.... and it has (so far) worked great! .... except it loses the time setting when I change batteries, no matter how fast I perform the function... keeps frequency pre-sets though, so I don't know what that is all about. Great radio, with issues.

This is an excellent little radio! Very nice physical design. Construction seems sturdy. 1kHz tuning steps for AM is great feature.. Narrow filter works well. AM receiver is fairly sensitive with good audio. FM reception is superb! Weather band reception is very good as well. Overall a very well thought out little receiver... I am well pleased with my purchase!

The CC Pocket Radio has been my most satisfactory radio to date. Be sure to set the auto-off timer when using in bed or the batteries will run down. And the battery life seems very good. The AM reception is as good as any other non-premium radio, but I imagine that would improve with various types of AM booster schemes. The FM reception is very good, and the stereo sound quality is surprisingly good played on a $300 Beyerdynamic headphone. I use only a few presets, but I really appreciate the up/down manual tuning since I don't want a 'scan' to skip weak stations. The layout of the buttons is perfect, and the radio is very easy to operate in the dark.

This is my first purchase from C.Crane and I am well pleased.I have owned several pocket type radio's over the years and Cranes beats all of them hands down. The only thing that I am interested in is the quality of the reception on both AM & FM stations. This little radio is amazing in that regard. The FM signals using the included antenna are very good and more than can be expected for such a small radio at such an inexpensive price.As stated this is my first purchase from Crane... it will not be the last.

Finally I've found a decent shirt-pocket radio with a SPEAKER so I'm not forced to wear earphones. I thought good pocket radios had gone extinct since the Walkman and the advent of the polo shirt. This radio is VERY GOOD at reception, and great for talk-radio. The belt-clip makes it easy to use with an I.D.Card LANYARD to hang it around my neck for those times when I'm wearing a pocketless shirt. My work has me outdoors all day in all kinds of weather, and THIS is the radio that I'll carry with me.Jim FlanneryK0UNXLittleton, ColoradoYou may use my name / callsign.

Very nice small radio. Sound through built-in speaker is acceptable for speech, but, as you would expect, falls short for music. Reception is quite good for FM. I live in a difficult mountainous region for AM reception, but it pulls in most regional stations, albeit with some background noise for the weaker stations. One of the features can reduce this by narrowing the frequency range (I think) and one can also turn off the display, which is also said to help. The supplied (on special) wooden earpieces work very well with very nice response over a seemingly wide range. Bass will not be booming, but is fine. The weather radio feature is nice to have, especially if one expects an ALERT in the near future.Altogether, this is a very nice and compact radio that is almost certain to satisfy.

My first impression was that someone thought about usability. Volume control on top; rubberized sides and bottom; easy one-handed operation, even in the dark. My second impression, after tuning around a bit, was that someone thought about performance. AM stations were clear, even with the radio turned 90 degrees; FM stations were listenable, even without an external antenna of any kind. In an effort to avoid subjectivity, I decided to compare the CC Pocket to a couple radios in the same class — more or less — of compact size and under-$100 pricing. To keep audio quality equal and also eliminate differences in antenna length that affect FM reception, I used the earbuds that came with the CC Pocket with all three radios. To avoid the effects of a dark and stormy night, I did this testing in the middle of a dry and sunny day. Sony's legendary SRF-49 is a speakerless analog radio that runs on a single AA battery. Short of far more expensive tuners with highly selective and/or configurable filtering and tuning, I've yet to run across a radio that outperforms it, so it makes a good benchmark for this sort of test. Last time I checked, it was still marginally available as the SRF-59, which is the same radio in a slightly different case.My other test radio was a Grundig YB-550PE, a paperback-size AM/FM/shortwave radio with a digital tuner that runs on three AA batteries. Although it doesn’t qualify as a pocket radio in the usual sense, it offers decent performance and audio quality at a reasonable price. At least it did — like the Sony, it's no longer in production. The Sony and the CC Pocket were virtually identical on both AM and FM. Aside from its fuller sound, this was generally true of the Grundig as well. All did a good job of reverting to mono when the signal was too weak for stereo, and all did this at about the same signal level. I didn’t need to use the CC Pocket's mono setting; the signal remained very listenable without any manual intervention on my part. Tuning an AM station at 600 kHz sandwiched between two much stronger signals — one at 590 and the other at 610 — again got me the same results on both the Sony and the CC Pocket. In this case, the station was audible but unlistenable due to heterodyne, and no amount of fine tuning or bandwidth reduction was able to change that. I don't think any tuner in this price range could improve this situation, so no big surprise there. What did surprise me was that the only sound from the Grundig was background noise, leaving it in third place on the sensitivity scale. A pocket radio with a digital tuner that works as well as the old analog tuner in the Sony, good build-quality and ergonomics, plus a speaker, station presets, a clock, weather band, selectable tuning steps and AM bandwidth . . . well, two thumbs up for the CC Pocket. A class act in a very small package. 73,Jeff

I live 40 miles from Detroit, 35 miles from Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti, 35 miles from Canada and about 24 miles from Toledo, Ohio. Using the enclosed wire earphone jack antenna for use with the speaker, or instead using earbuds/ safety earphones, my CC Pocket Radio cleanly receives on the FM band, five different NPR stations, along with CBC Radio Canada 2. This beats using up my data plan with internet radio on the smartphone. The sound from the small speaker is better than expected for a pocket radio. I find that I listen to the speaker more than I would have thought. It is easy to tune. The presets past the first five are a bit awkward but no big deal. On FM, the mono mode is so clean that I usually don't bother to switch to stereo, even for jazz. Weak stations come in strong and don't fade. Battery life is good. The most pleased I have been with a radio since the new 1964 Peerless transistor AM pocket radio I received for my 10th birthday.

I concur with all of the positive comments in the other reviews, which I read prior to making my purchase. The CC Pocket is a radio lover's dream. It is well designed and engineered, and has several unique features. The quality and functionality are impressive. It has low power consumption, resulting in long battery life. Being able to use rechargeable AA's is a real plus. With the included premium ear buds, the CC Pocket Radio is an outstanding value.

My wife and I both use this radio while working around the house. This has the best quality and reception of any of at least six radios we've used over the past 30+ years. The marks on its case show some hard use and probably account for the recent failure of the speaker/ear switch. It is now limited to speaker only. Since I didn't initially register the product last January, and I opened the case to check for an obvious disconnect (a warranty no-no), I'll just buy another one. Obviously, I recommend it.

Nearly perfect little radio. Very simple and clean looking as well as functioning. With the rubber around the edges feels really great in your hands. In Denver I get excellent reception on AM and FM. NOAA also comes in loud and clear and static free without plugging in headset or antenna. This radio has been with me since I received it couple days ago (CCrane always ships fast) Listening to Rockies and Nuggets games, my talk shows and an oldies am music station that plays the same music I listened to on my very first transistor pocket radio I got for my 10th birthday! The CC pocket of course will actually fit in my pocket and quite advanced in technology from that first transistor I had. I mainly listen to am with the speaker but every so often I'll listen to FM with earphones and this radio sounds fantastic with stereo earphones as well. I'm glad the designers decided to give the radio a flat bottom so I can set it upright on a table or bench with the speaker aimed towards me. I've owned the DT-400W since 2008 and always wished it had a flat bottom. That radio by the way is still going strong but after comparing the two, the CC Pocket just does a better job on station reception. This is the 8th radio I've ordered from C Crane. My order history doesn't go back that far but I think the first was a CCRadio around 1997. Very satisfied customer!

This is a super good radio, the built-alarm clock is very handy. Reception on the AM/FM and weather bands is great and the 2 AA batteries seem to last a long time.The only shortcoming seems to be the small footprint of the radio when it is standing up, it is so small it falls over easily - but then it also fits easily into a shirt pocket.

I had been waiting many years for some company to produce a new pocket radio with an emphasis on good reception. I assumed no one was because there was not enough profit in it, so I commend C.CRANE on this score. For about twenty years I have used the last small radio with good reception that Sony produced, the SRF-M75 Sports Walkman. This radio easily beats it although I do wish it were a sports model with no external speaker done in ABS plastic to better withstand the rain and being dropped and with the flexible belt clip used on the last Sony S2 tape player model, the WM-FS555 or FS222. Because of this, I waited to buy until I could read some reviews which were so positive that I bought it. I certainly like having a mono/stereo switch again which companies like Sony dumped decades ago. I find the battery life to be very good also which I did not expect. I bought a second one for my wife.

Over the years, I have attempted to find the “best of the best,” whenever possible. At one time, I had acquired a pocket radio (from Radio Shack) which was destined to be my favorite, because of its size and because of the multitudinous features in that small size, one which was simple to operate yet powerful enough to get the job done. Nevertheless, with that poor little radio beginning to wear itself out, I began the search again for the best in its class. When CCrane showed this radio, hyperventilation took over…! Was this the destined replacement? Acquisition fever overcame the breathing problem, and waiting became the undisputed challenge, the antidote to cure the diseases above described.It finally arrived, right on time…Batteries in, a glance at the manual, and … joy and rapture! This radio was and is the answer, intuitive and powerful, everything as posited on the website! Thank you, CCrane, for this undisputed jewel! Only two features the other radio had that this one does not: TV mode, one which I could not get to work anyway, to my satisfaction, so, no complaints; and bass boost. Still, no complaints. So easy to use, self-explanatory, and powerful enough to bring in every station I need.I heartily recommend this radio to everyone requiring power in small size. And it is nice to do business with CCrane again. Keep up the good work!

I just received my new CC Pocket Radio and I now have a new favorite in my collection. I have both the CCRadio SW Pocket Radio and the Sangean DT-400W, but the new CC Pocket has a much cleaner user interface that makes all the difference in the world. More importantly the CC Pocket Radio has the ability to receive FM and Weather without an external antenna. Plus, when listening to AM it's nice to be able to easily select between wide and narrow filtering. The clock with an alarm, the ability to use rechargeable batteries, weather alert--it's a complete package. Awesome product.

Nice radio, nice features, but "tinny" speaker sound offsets these. Compared to the Sangean DT-400W, the speaker of the CC Pocket Radio sounds tinny compared to the Sangean. I do like the push button presets and this radio does pull in more FM signals without the wire plugged in compared to the DT-400W. Also, I've noted that the Sangean has a bit better interference rejection of local noise than does the CC Pocket, maybe this is because the DT-400W is more sensitive?Anyway, this is a nice little set, but I'll stick with the Sangean DT-400W because the sound is fuller.

I bought this radio late DecemberI took it on trip to Western Olympic Peninsula in Washington.The only AM station I could get was 690AM CBC.The Sony SRF-M37W didn't work quite as good. I have tried several other portable radios that weren't nearly as good. So, CC Pocket is the best.I set it to narrow AM tuning bandwidth and it worked a little better. No other radio has something like this.Really nice design, like the buttons are recessed so they don't get pressed accidentally.I like that the battery compartment is big enough to hold NiMh batteries which are slightly larger.Great product.

Got my CCPocket radio on January 2 and I am thrilled with it’s performance and rate it at Five Stars. Really like the feel and construction of the unit and all of the controls and it has a well written manual. Entered the frequency’s I wanted with out any problems.Most of my radio listening is on AM and sometimes listen to FM Broadcasts and this goes back over 60 years for me. Also being a ham operator I still love listening to the AM radio band and DX stations. Starting with the AM band first I noticed that the selectivity is much better than most of my other radios. Tested this by getting close to a local station and checking up and down and seeing what I could hear and then comparing it with some of my other digital radios. I was impressed with the CCPocket radio with it’s selectivity and out performing other radios. On the Weather Band I noticed that I did not need an antenna for the local weather service. Putting the headphones back on the radio I was picking up Waterloo and Dubuque, Iowa NOAA weather radio.On the FM band I normally do not listen to and did noticed all the strong stations came in well and best of all sound good with the earphones supplied.This is a fun radio to have and especially with the NOAA radio on board and also the sounds from the speaker are good for the size of the radio. Thanks again CCrane for such a well built and compact package. 73, Bill from Iowa

  • Can you explain how the 55 memories work?

    The 5 memory buttons provide 5 memories per band for quick use. As an advanced function you can access additional memory pages for AM and FM. To access memory pages 2-5 when in AM or FM mode, press and hold the Band button for 5 seconds. On the screen the word PAGE will blink (10 seconds until timeout). During this time, press the page number of memories you want using the 1-5 buttons on the front. For example if you wanted page 2 of the memories, press the band button for 5 seconds, then press button #2. Please note: This function does not work in WX mode.

  • How long will the radio retain my clock and preset settings while I change the batteries?

    The CC Pocket will retain its memory settings for approximately 15 minutes without batteries.

  • How do I activate the narrow AM filter?

    Quickly press memory buttons #1 and #3 at the same time while listening to your desired AM station. Press again to return to normal (wide) filtering. Note: This setting is helpful to eliminate unwanted noise or adjacent overlapping stations. Narrow AM (2.5 KHz) may work best for voice. The normal setting (4 KHz) is best for music.

  • Can I improve FM performance by using earbuds or an external FM antenna wire?

    The built-in FM antenna is good but it can be improved by connecting an FM antenna wire or headphones/earbuds.

  • I have noticed that my AM reception is not as good as it used to be. Also, how come it is not stopping on any stations when scanning the AM band?

    If you are scanning the band for a strong station and it never stops it may be set to 9KHz. Check to make sure you are set to 10KHz tuning; if you are in 9KHz mode it can greatly affect the reception, not just the tuning. Press and hold down memory button #5. If 10 pops up on the display then it was set at 9KHz which would cause of the diminished reception. If 9 pops up than it was already set on 10KHz and it would then need to be changed back to 10.

  • How do I restore the radio to factory defaults?

    With the power OFF, press and hold the memory buttons #1 and #5 for five seconds. You will hear a tone to signify it has been done.

  • When I use earbuds, I can hear "noise" (sounds like a soft hissing) in the background. How come?

    This is normal. What you are hearing is the audio amplifier circuit for the headphone jack.

  • How come my batteries slide around like they do not fit?

    Please make sure you are using (2) AA batteries. Using AAA batteries will not keep a stable connection to the battery contacts because they are too small.
