Rich Warren: Grace Mondo radio is the way to go
The base model costs $300, with successively larger models up to $700. Or you can purchase the SoundTouch enabled Bose Wave Music System for $600. But most people don't buy $300 radios. Thus, I recently procured the Grace Mondo (GDI-IRC6000) for $130 ...

She opens her eyes in the dark and waits for the soft click as the chain that is attached to her locked steel collar is released from the head of the bed at precisely 5-30.

After inserting the battery, you immediately notice the overall weight and feel of the radio. It has a solid feel and fits my large hand nicely. The top of the radio has the traditional Volume/PowerOn switch and Channel Selector. The left side has the PTT button and well as two programmable function buttons. The TERMN-8R transmitter has 3 power levels. My Over the Air contacts have received excellent quality and level reports. Sensitivity VHF (@ 145 MHz): -126 dBm (@ 50Ω, 12 dB SINAD). Sensitivity UHF (@ 435 MHz): -125 dBm (@ 50Ω, 12 dB SINAD). Excellent numbers — nothing to see on VHF, -57. 83 dBm on UHF. The TERMN-8R has Dual Receivers that function over six bands: VHF, UHF, Aviation Band (108-136MHz), Shortwave (AM 2. 3 – 30MHz), AM Broadcast (520-1710kHz) and FM Broadcast (64-108MHz). Both the FM Broadcast Band and expanded Aviation Band include 100 memory channels each and can be used with Fast Scan (see below). Dual Receivers allow for receiving two signals simultaneously, rather than just sampling for activity.
Having managed to keep the blog going for almost two years, I think I can count on some of you as long time readers. And as long time readers, you know very well that I do not dwell on such mundane topics in this blog. I will stick to the more serious things in our lives such as coffee and shaving, and in this instance, I want to talk about the alarm clock. And other clocks. First, a word about calling it an alarm clock. It is strange that we wind it up to go off at a particular time but when it does, say that the 'alarm' went off. It would be alarming if it failed to go off, not the other way around. On the other hand, I can justify the name perfectly from the clock's point of view. If I were the clock, I would certainly be alarmed. Alarm clocks have become indispensable in our lives. The idea of training myself to get up to the sound of an alarm does not appeal to me. I have generally had the ability to wake up at some specific hour on a regular basis. I do use the alarm whenever I need to get up earlier than usual.
Why Are Alarm Clocks Still a Thing?
