Realistic (brand)

The Realistic DX-60 is an AM-mode only shortwave radio marketed by Radio Shack in the late 1970s through the early 1980s. The radio receives 3 MHz to 27 MHz AM shortwave in three bands, 26.965 MHz through 27.405 MHz HF CB in one band, 540 kHz to 1620 kHz standard AM broadcast in one band, and 87 MHz to 108 MHz monaural standard broadcast FM. The radio exists in two versions, model 12-764 and a nearly identical but production-cost-reduced 12-764A.

Famous quotes containing the word realistic:

    A mother wants all of life to be painless for her child. This is not a realistic goal, however. Deprivation and frustration are as much a part of life as gratification. It is some balance between these that a mother is looking for. To take the next step is always painful in part. It means relinquishing gratification on some level. If one is totally gratified where one is, why move ahead? If one is totally frustrated, why bother?
    Elaine Heffner (20th century)
