DeWayne,

I went for the black color as my S-350 is silver, and I don't care for
it.  The thing I like about
the black model of the 1102 is that it has silver buttons that will
stand out nicely against the
black - easier on my eyes!

I can hardly wait to get my package from the slow boat from China!

I must have missed something somewhere.
When Anil first posted he was concerned about spending
$20 extra bucks difference between the Degen/Kaito 1101
and 1102.
Now he's going to consider buying  a $200 ATS-909?????
Something's fishy here and it isn't the replies to all
the questions.

There was probably a lost post suggesting he buy a Watkins Johnson
but nevermind...

ANY shortwave receiver  is better than None
$29 . 95/100,
- Analogue, single reduction, creaky when you tune it
Stuck together with candle wax.
- Hook enough antenna  wire to it & your up & running,
picking up stuff from
the other side of the surface of the earth..

Just MHO  
 others will strongly disagree

         Antenna is as important as a radio - How true indeed !!
I connected 15 ft of wire to my Grundig FR - 200 and was able to get
India on 31 meter band without any fading . I probably need to buy a
reel antenna and be happy with it's performance .

         GREAT advice DAN .
