  2. Johan J.

    Value for moneyStill early days but it appears to be durable and sturdy, excellent reception and the gps is such a bonus. Easy to operate, I am very happy with total package.

  3. Michael R. Block

    This radio works very well and it does everything that they advertise.I’m happy, I upgraded from a radio that I purchased in the eighties. With the extra features it a good value. Compared to the cost of my old radio in the eighties, this radio is a steel. This radio will do things unimaginable in the old days. So I like this radio.

  6. Pauline

    Bad companyWe initially like the radio and then with less than 40 hours of use, it quit. I contacted the company and they said I could send it in for an estimate. Then it is $70 an hour for repair. By the time I go through that process, the summer will be over. Very disappointing for the price that we paid

  7. Joseph Palazzolo

    Does everything I need it to doThis is my third Standard Horizon radio. I still have the previous two and they both work. I just upgrade every 15 years or so to get newer features.
