I ordered a County Comm GP-4L from Universal Radio and it arrived today. For $22, it's a keeper. It is easy to set up the clock and alarm. Tuning is accurate (the LCD reads close to the broadcast frequency). Reception is good. The speaker is so-so --- about what I expected. The earbud headphones are a throw-away-- use a pair from one of your other noisemakers. I guess you could keep them for a back-up-- they do work.
So, it is light, small, cheap, recieves well, will wake you up in the morning, pulls in international broadcasts, runs on AA batteries (reports are good on battery usage)and it will light up your tent with an LED bright enough to read by. I like the Spartan design-- does exactly what it needs to do and not a thing more. Kinda retro -- like an AM/FM/SW Coleman stove :)
