D:  I scanned, then manually tuned and preset all 6 spots with our favorite
programs so
scanning will not be a problem in the future as the Tucson market is pretty
I'm 70 and have enough problems elsewhere to worry about loose connections other
than the
one in my defibrillator.

The radio is performing admirably.  Thanks for your considerate reply.  Jim

favorite programs so

pretty small...but

connections other than the

Defibrillator?  You sure you don't mean pacemaker?  Only paramedics are
allowed to use defibrillators!  ;-)

 There is a device called an AICD (automated internal cardiac defibrillator)
that performs the same function as a paramedic's external defibrillator.
Since it's internal, it uses much lower energy level (10-25 watts/second)
versus 200-360 watts/second. Certain devices, like microwave ovens, radar
guns, and theft detectors/metal detectors are notorious for disturbing the
normal operation of AICD's and Pacemakers.

 I have had a Medtronic defibrillator ICD since 1996.

I find the reception in the package 9 to be outstanding.  FM sensitivity
is excellent, and AM sensitivity and selectivity is incredible.  There is
a local AM tower next to the freeway here in Santa Barbara that carries
three local stations at 1290, 1340, and 1490.  I can drive the freeway
past the tower and listen to 1450 in Ventura about 30 miles away without a
hint of interference.  Every other car I've driven has failed miserably in
this respect, with intermodulation and overload for about half a mile.  

I have had some issues with the CD changer occasionally giving a "Check"
message on some disks.  Selecting a different disk and coming back to the
failedone seems to fix it.  I'm going to try swapping the disks around to
see if it is the disk or the slot.  I use the random across all disks
setting which exercises the changer mechanism a lot more than listening to
a single disk at a time.
