    Bose sound great. This is a used one on eBay. About a quarter of a new one.

    Amazing how few radios have AM. At least those in store right now. I found one that fits what she wants. It Has AM/FM, CD and battery back up about 19 hours on battery. It is small but has good sound so she can place it where she wants it. It also does not require a two week on line course to learn how to use it. She will never know what it cost , I won't tell her. With batteries , tax it came to $70 .
    Grandma likes her radio bingo. There are also a few other local things on AM she likes to listen to. I think the one she has in about 20 plus years old and on it's last breath. Of course Grandma can't figure out why heck that is, it's only 20 years old.

    That's interesting.

    I understand why cassettes, 8 tracks, buggy whips and radial arm saws went away. The world moved on, and for the most part, improved. (I like radial arm saws.)

    But aren't there still AM stations out there? (No idea, I don't usually listen to radio.) Seems to me as long as the stations are there, someone would want to manufacture the radios.

    You could buy new scales for drafting machines (60's technology, buried by CAD/CAM) right up until last year. Usually the market for something stays active until long after the demand is gone, so it strikes me as strange that radio making people would anticipate the demise of AM.

    Lot of Am stations. Another thing is AM signals will go where FM can not. The people that design this stuff live in a bubble ,they do not have a clue. All the understand is Blue tooth and wifi

    I thought it was FM that could go into tunnels and such.

    I like AM and shortwave. Too bad America has abandoned one and is quickly trying to destroy the other.

    If I understand it right, AM signals off the ground and atmosphere, which is why HAM radios can be heard so far away. FM signals travel straight out in 360, like line of sight. So, if you're within 35-50 miles from the tower, you'll get a good signal. CB radios, Walkie Talkies, portable telephones all use FM signals.

    Many talk shows transmit on AM stations. I listen to Glenn Beck, Rush and Hannity on AM when time allows.

    You are correct. This is why AM can be heard at greater distance at night.

    With very little power we could bounce Am signals many thousands of miles. FM is more line of sight and must be repeated often to be effective. Grandma is happy with the one I found her.
