Re: CC Crane AM and FM broadcast radio

Dear Pamela &list:
C. Crane no longer sells any Sangean products. Perhaps they listen to their customers.
I own several Sangean radios, CCCCRadio , CCRadio 2, CCRadio SW, the Observer and two of the shirt-pocket AM/FM/weather radios and a wind-up AM/FM/Weather radio. Gave two wind-up radios to friends in NYC, they said they have plenty electricity, them Sandy played New York, the lights went out for over a week, the electric train set was flooded to top of the stations. However, the MTA brought in trains with Pump cars and work trains with new ballast, they got the train set running again in a week or so. And the 44-foot GM diesel busses.

I have two ccradios, and I don't like them. They are Sangean , and every singeing product I have had isn't what it is cracked up to be. Pam.

I would like to know how the receptions is on the cc radio.
The same man that said that over the air radio is going away also said that the c Crain radios are junk. I don't think so but I have never had one. I think that if they were junk then all of those coast to coast listeners would send them back. Brian Sackrider

Hello Fred,

I also own two of these Crane Radios, and for the most part, I like
them, and they have worked well now for years.

Sorry, I don't know of any Fix for your Radio's, but I always lose all
settings when I unplug the Cord, and remove the Batteries, and leave
it for an hour or so.

All settings in memory are erased.

It is odd that both radios are suffering the same problem, and that it
is All the memory Buttons and not just one or two.

One of my Radio's had a problem with the On and Off Switch. I bought
some of that tuner Cleaner, and sprayed all around that Switch, and it
started working again.

If it were me, I would call the Crane Company and talk to a live
person, and see if they can give you an answer, or pass you to someone who could.

Hope you get those Radios fixed.
