I have the radio at home now, and I suppose I could gush about how well it's doing picking up stereo signals that weren't even listenable in mono on my Onkyo (KOLA, woot!), but the troll's panties would get in a bunch.
If it makes him feel any better, I think the analog AM sounds horrible (every bit as bad as, but completely different than the Sangean), and I can't get an HD lock on any AM stations. That's par for the course in this apartment, though, and the FM alone makes the radio worth WAY more than the measley $50 I'm going to end up paying for it. I shall try the AM HD again in the AM.
Just curious ... has anybody managed to get it to lock onto 87.75 (channel 6 audio)? We have a low-power channel 6 here operating as an FM (with full modulation and FM stereo pilot, and yes it's LOUD on a TV), but the F1HD can't pick up a usable signal on it, either on 87.7 or 87.8. I promise not to start a rant about it if it's not possible, nor will it put a crimp in my radio listening habits. I'm just curious if it can be done.
