As far as my testing radios go, I have two:
1. Eton FR-250. Nice little radio that does AM/FM/SW. Does pretty good just on tuning and has two different tuning dials for additional selectivity.
2. Sony ICF-SW7600GR. This radio is arguably the best portable receiver on the market still. First or second on nearly every list.
Car radio testing is nice, but listeners have non car radio mainly and are indoors. So testing the car radio route is minimally useful in my opinion. Will do the car radio test over the weekend though in addition.
Did one test with car (van actually) to our problematic south side and that yielded the distance of five whole houses < 200 ft range.
