Mine, oh mine, oh mine, it happened to me, yes it did, I was sitting in my
comfy chair with my thinly veiled Sangean (RS DX-390) and the antenna
touched the lampstand which happened to be brass and well grounded
Oh frabjous day, a warranty repair. (bought extended warranty from
RS""""""""Thinks: when DX390 is discontinued by the nice Radio Shack people
, there will still be a lot of static electricity around)
