terrible quality contol
Purchaced two of these, one for a parent and one for my self. One unit excellent reciver, the other? Static. The one that picks up the stations better the volume knob dosent seem to work properly it will not turn down the volume to a comfortable level. Everything else seems to work but for the cost it is pretty rough.
