    Default North Korean Radio??

    I got a kick out of this..

    From the official North Korea website (http://www.korea-dpr.com), I was bored at work and I found that they sell radios!! However I can't tell if its fake, has anyone else seen this type of radio... Obviously its not ideal for amateur use anyway, but I am curious..

    I lived in Korea (South) for a year in 1997.

    Those North Koreans have a hard enough time growing rice. I'm sure that little radio works just fine. I'll leave it at that.

    Don't try to buy one though. If export CBs can't cut the mustard.....well, you get the idea.

    I'm sure anything that comes out of N. Korea smells like charcoal and burnt rubber, that smell that screams "made in a workers paradise". I would expect anything they make to pretty much be junk.

    Looks like ol Kim my have dropped one in his mess kit by sinking that South Korean ship.
    I'm sorry you don't have the experience or understanding to realize that others possess a skill set that you seem to dismiss as fantastical.

    Is it legal to even buy anything from NK? I know we can't export technology there.

    I see. Pretty much junk eh ! That's why the US government is a little concerned about the fact they have rather good inter ballistic missiles and may well have nuclear warheads, and torpedo's which work, but as you say the radio's may be a bit crappy.

    Nobody can beat China for good cheap stuff. It's all delicate, but it works great! I love me some Chinese people.
