Product Details
RCA RP7887 High-Performance Super Radio
The RCA RP7887 High-Performance Super Radio III was designed specifically for long range AM and FM reception. It features tuned RF on both AM and FM for excellent sensitivity. Optimum selectivity is provided by 4 IF tuned circuits on AM and 3 on FM.

A wide/normal switch allows you to control selectivity. Excellent sound is achieved via a 6-1/2" woofer and 2" tweeter. Other features include an FM-AFC, separate bass and treble controls, mono mini earphone jack and fold-down carrying handle. A built in 7-7/8" ferrite rod antenna brings in distant AM stations. Screw terminals are provided for external AM and FM antennas. This radio is a favorite among medium wave DXers, outperforming multiband radios costing many times more.

    Comments about RCA RP7887 High-Performance Super Radio:

    Poor reception, and does not stay on radio station. Tuning dial can be turned one full turn in either direction and will not change station, then skips stations. Seems to lock onto strong station signals and not select the frequency for station reception.

      Comments about RCA RP7887 High-Performance Super Radio:

      I now have 4 of the radio because I like to have them in various location i.e. basement, workshop, garage, bathroom etc. We have a single level long house and the radios allows use to listen to what we want where we want. Like the fact that the batteries last quite a long time in these radios.

      Comments about RCA RP7887 High-Performance Super Radio:

      I've replaced my worn out, broken GE Super Radio I bought many years ago with this RCA. In comparison, they are very similar, but I think the GE was better. The only problem I have with the RCA is when you first turn it on, it makes noises (like scratchy, short-wave radio interference) and seems to struggle to tune in. After it has warmed up a bit, however, it turns on OK.

      • Precise Tuning

      Cons

      • Tuning Dial is off

      Best Uses

        Comments about RCA RP7887 High-Performance Super Radio:

        I bought this radio for work since it's difficult to get good reception with most radios. I'm able to get decent reception, although I may still add an external antenna (this is an option as there are terminals on the back for this). The sound from the speakers is great. My only complaint so far is that the tuning dial is not accurate.
