In re-reading my WRTH article from 1981 Iâm reminded that the XCR-30 also went to Europe a few times. Pretty sure I travelled without the dozen or so D-cells it craved. Evereadys didnât catch on fire like LiOn cells but they were just as heavy. ;-)

Not so long before I joined VOA, in 1982, story goes that monitors lugged 51Jâs along on reception surveys. Can you imagine?

Thank goodness for the Sony 2001 and later 2010!

Original owner of my XCR-30 is none other than Ian McFarland of CBC RCI.

And I assure you, it has never picked up Radio Cook Islands!
