OK I got this Sony Pro 80 on Ebay and it seems to work OK. Audio is not the loudest , but I wonder if anyone has the matching converter box for this model radio so it can be used to receive Aircraft as well. I can be reached by email directly firstname.lastname@example.org
Also picked up the Sony ICF-2001 and I have got to say this radio is amazing in every aspect.
Well thanks to anybody who might be able to help me.
