Well here we go again... what will 2009 bring? - same as last year? - I think we all hope not! I dunno, we seem to say every year gets worse, but to quote her majesty herself, last year truly was an "Annus Horriblis". (apologies for spelling but you get the sentiment).
So now I find myself looking all nostalgiac (this season does that to me). Thoughts turn to new radios, toys, goodies, and despite looking and wondering about all the current radios currently on offer, there is absolutely nothing that "floats my boat". Indeed, following the nostalgia theme, I have been looking back to radios of yesteryear - in particularly the Kenwood radios of the 80/90s with the black finish and the fancy signal meters.
I have considered, looked at and ultimately rejected several radios. I particularly would like a TS850SAT, TS450SAT or TS690S - I never seem to find one in pristine condition with box and full packaging etc. Maybe I am too demanding but I will bide my time and have one.
