Many years ago I also remembering reading about a shortwave radio which had speech output. I believe it was produced in the U.K. and wondering if anyone remembered anything about it.

The radio you are referring to was called the Speechmaster talking radio, and it had AM, FM and shortwave bands. Unfortunagtely, its manufacturerr,Cobolt, discontinued it a few years ago.  The Sangean PR-D17 is currently the only talking radio on the market, and it is no longer available on the Amazon.co site, which means that it can only be purchased in the US.

Billy, try:

www.amazon.co.uk

No doubt, if they carry the PRD17, it'll ship to your neck-of-the-woods!!

As I previously mentioned, the Sangean PR-D17 is no longer available on Amazon.co.

Okay, since this radio is no longer available on Amazon.co, try Ebay.co.  Just type "sangean pr-d17" into the search field, and see if you get any results.  If you can find a new one for about 77 pounds, consider buying it.

Out of curiosity, I searched Ebay.co myself, and found a US-based seller that has the Sangean PR-D17 for about 77 pounds, or about $95 with free overseas shipping to the UK:

Does anyone have a recording of this radio working? Before I spend the money I would like to hear what it sounds like in the voice on it. Thank you in advance.

Yes thank you for the audio also. I have just ordered mine off of Amazon. It will not be shipped until April 20. I also got the three-year warranty for only eight dollars and some change.
