Everyone appreciates simplicity with high performance. That's exactly what you'll find when you listen to your favorite AM and FM radio stations using the CCRadio-EP. There is no clock to set, no station presets to program. All you have to do is push the red power button and turn the dial. There is a separate button for the dial light.The CCRadio-EP has similar performance characteristics as the CCRadio-2. For very weak stations, AM reception can be fine tuned with a manual adjustment of our built-in "Twin Coil Ferrite® Antenna." No adjustment is needed to bring in most stations clearly. The CCRadio-EP brings the fun and joy back to radio.

Why did we build the CCRadio-EP?

This is a bit embarrassing, but we built it for my mother. I asked her one day if she was enjoying her CCRadioPlus I gave her. With a little prodding she looked at me in a way only a mother can and she said: "I don’t like all the buttons". About six months later a customer came in the store in a focused rush and asked for a radio "without all the buttons... just a regular radio". I knew at that moment we had to build the EP knowing full well that success was to be measured by customer satisfaction and not necessarily money (most people have no idea of the actual cost to develop a new product, even a simple radio). I told him to come back in a year or two. He probably thought I was blowing smoke!

Now back to my mother. I know she is smart. She drove safely until she was over 90 and she still continues to watercolor on a limited basis. She did not start painting until she was well into her 80’s. The point is my mother did not want to spend her valuable time learning some sequence of buttons perpetrated by a somewhat insensitive electronics expert.

We’ve had a great response to this radio. One of the best was a call from a woman in charge of a music department at a university. She said she was prepared to get ripped off with the purchase of the CCRadio-EP but was wildly surprised at the audio quality alone. We have received numerous letters written in long hand in appreciation of the EP. If you’re looking for a simple radio with good performance and a reasonable price, the CCRadio-EP is an excellent choice.

How does the new CCRadio-EP compare with the CCRadio-2?
The CCRadio-EP has excellent AM reception almost as good as our CCRadio-2. The EP brings simple joy back to radio listening.

How long will a fresh set of D-size Alkaline batteries power the radio?

A set of D Alkaline batteries rated at 21000 mAh would provide roughly 300 hours of runtime. This is based on AM band usage and if the radio is played at a moderate volume level with the display light off.

What are the numbers at the top of the display used for (0-10)?
They're used as an indicator to help locate a frequency.

I am experiencing bleed over from competing stations on AM; is there any way to resolve this?

Try nulling out the signal by turning the radio in a slightly different direction. You can also modify the amount of signal being let in by adjusting the tone knob from Music to Voice setting. Lastly, try adjusting the Twin Coil Ferrite tuner knob.

I am completely unable to receive AM on my CCRadio-EP; is something set wrong?

First, check the back of the radio and make sure the Internal/External switch is set to Internal. Next check the Twin Coil Tuning Knob to make sure it is in the center position.
