I need to beat this poor dead horse again.
The Becker Grand Prix radio died several years ago in the 1987 300E my
86-year-old mother pokes around town in. The inner amplifier was
staying on and running down the battery, so I just disconnected the
power. I now get bored with no radio when I drive for a 100 mile round
trip once a month or so to "clean" the sparkplugs.
Can anyone suggest a "simple" radio replacement with an easy to find
on-off button and station preset buttons? My trips to the local Circuit
City type stores are quite intimiding with mini-television screens,
remote controls, removeable faceplates, etc. that require a degree in
computer science to operate.
What looks decent in the car? Any Blaupunkt models? Is Alpine still
considered a better yet realisticly priced upgrade? I recall here was
some website back East that sold radios with an electrical pigtail to
hook into the exisitng MB wiring for the Becker that was on this list
several years back.
I will only listen to it about once a month so I just want something
that will pick up local radio stations. No "sound system with multi
amplifiers and a trunk full of woofers" just to listen to Rush Limbaugh
Any suggestions appreciated.
