GREAT Radio, Especially for Seniors: EASY to Use, Easy-to-Read Dial, Big Tuning Knob. Volume Wheel
By Neschie Smith
I've had my radio for less than 24 hours so I cannot speak about durability. But I LOVE it so far! I'm 70 yrs young and I spend my days gardening in my big yard April to October. I like to listen to NPR or oldies music while I work. Dragging around a 100-ft extension cord has been tiresome during the last year.
My similar, 28-yr-old battery-operated radio (paid $8 new) finally died last year. I've been looking for a replacement. I wanted a SIMPLE radio that could run on AA rechargeable batteries so I could always have a spare set charged. I wanted a large dial display, with a large tuning knob (NOT tiny buttons that take forever to tune and hurt my fingers) and a volume wheel (instead of those nasty little buttons). I wanted analog. I did not want Bluetooth, alarms, CD player, etc. Just an old-fashioned portable radio I could carry around—larger than an iPhone (so I can set it on the ground) yet lightweight, with a large handle, good, large speaker .This Panasonic RF-2400 is perfect. It's exactly what I wanted. I called Panasonic to ask a question and they have not made this radio since 2001 but told me there's no reason why Amazon's stock would not be good. IF you bought this radio and love it, you might want to buy another while Amazon still has stock.
When I googled battery-operated portable radio, all the links were for boom boxes with CD players, Smart Phone chargers, Bluetooth and other things I don't need. Also, most of these radios had permanent, built-in batteries. If the battery ran out of juice, you'd have to plug it into a wall outlet and wait hours for it to recharge. So much for progress in the portable radio business. Other "portable" radios were solar and crank powered. The batteries on most didn't store the energy and died after 1-2 hours.
I paid $110 + tax for a portable Sangean radio with both solar and internal rechargeable battery. It was also supposed to be a great weather band, short wave radio. Charger was missing. NEVER received anything but static from the short wave mode. Never got a weather band station, and the battery died after 1 hour. Seller never responded to my requests to return it. I also bought a little crank & solar radio, an Ambient Weather Adventurer radio. Piece of junk. Ran less than one hour and wouldn't recharge. That was an expensive piece of junk, too $83 plus tax. Unresponsive seller.
My Panasonic has great sound--very clear and strong. I live in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, about a mile from a small airport. This radio does not get any interference from either airport or mountains. It pulls in stations that are 70-100 miles away for more. LOVE it! I hope it continues to work this well for many years.

This radio is fantastic! One of the best purchases that I have made in years. I am a radio nut and as I work in and around my house I am always moving the radio from here to there. My old radio was needing to be replaced so I gave this one a shot. I love it. There is a little dimple in the middle of the carrying handle which makes it easy for me to loop one finger around the handle and carry it around with me. The audio is nice. It is a bit bassy on the AM band and a hi/low tone switch would have been nice but it's really a non-issue, I just wanted to mention this.
The sensitivity is impressive. I live about 50 miles from the closest FM stations and this radio pulls them in....with the antenna down! The weaker stations need the antenna of course, but this is great. Audio sounds full range and nice on FM.
AM sensitivity is just as good. This radio receives stations just as good as my old vacuum tube radios. This was a surpise as well.
This radio is great in, out, and around your house or yard. Plenty of volume and it seems durable too. I absolutely love it. I am even thinking about buying another one just to store away so I have a backup. Highly recommended by me.

Great simple radio with great AM sensitivity.
By Value Appreciator
This is super little radio. Operates on 4 x AA cells. Simple controls, good sound quality on the speaker. Has a little notch in the carrying handle, if you want to hang the radio from a nail or something on the wall. Comes with an A/C cord if you don't want to use batteries. Easy to see dial, easy to use controls. Highly sensitive on the AM band, which is what I listen to. The FM band is OK too - I dialed around a little to test it out. Bought a second radio for my 91 year old mother, who is challenged with anything resembling a digital read-out. Highly recommend. Panasonic hit another one out of the park on this model.
