Since this radio is such a specialty item, my guess is that you won't find
anyone selling it at any substantial discount. It doesn't matter. At it's
normal street price, it's better than everything else. If you haven't
already done so, get a copy of Passport to World Band Radio. This is the TV
Guide of shortwave radio. In this book they also review every radio being
made today. They have a nice story on the history of the Sony 2010.
The Grundig 400 seems to be a good second choice for a less expensive model.
It does not have a switch for lower side band/upper side band selection,
which I believe you need for weather fax reception.
