Realistic DX-100 & DX-200
The DX-100 was Radio Shack's entry-level desktop shortwave receiver. The DX-200 was their mid-level model.
I don't really know much about these radios, but I would imagine that the performance of the DX-100 is something less than desirable. There's only 2 reasons to get one: 1) You found one absolutely dirt-cheap -or- 2) You are a collector.
The DX-200 is something of an up-scale DX-160. Same basic performance, but with a better tuning system. I like the DX-200 because of the crystal calibrator - I just like that kind of tuning scheme!
Both models are basic single-conversion superhet design. Nothing fancy.
