The roomy front panel contains the large Tuning knob, to its left are the mode and band selector knobs with the Volume Control at the bottom. The smaller knobs at the lower left are RF Gain, Treble and Bass, and a 1/8″ Stereo mini jack for headphones is at the far lower left.

Above the Tuning Knob are three push buttons for: Stop (a tuning lock), Slow and Fast tuning. To the right a group of 8 pushbuttons control Down & Up Tuning/Seeking, Memory, Alarm, Timers 1 & 2, Q. Tune and Preset buttons. The Q. Tune button is important and will be described in a moment. At the top right are three buttons for Power/Sleep, Local/World Time and Lock which disables all functions except the Light Switch. You can display World or Local Time momentarily while the radio is on.

On the top panel are a Light Switch (which can turn the lights on for 8 seconds or lock them on) and a Snooze Bar.

The left side contains RCA Stereo Line Out jacks, Battery Size Selector, DC and AC Power in jacks. The right side contains switches for Button lights, DX/Local and Internal/External Antennas. The Button Lights switch allows the pushbuttons to also illuminate when the dial light is on, evidently a power saving feature.

The back panel contains two Pal Connectors: One an external FM/SW antenna input, the other an AM IF Output jack for future connection to an outboard SSB or DRM decoder, and spring loaded connectors for a MW (AM) antenna. Inside the battery compartment which will let you load 4 AA and 4 D cells (simultaneously if you wish), is the 9/10 KHz MW Step switch.

Basic Operation & Initial Impressions: The RP2100 is a fun radio to use after a short time spent getting to know it. The high points are: excellent RF performance on all bands, excellent sound, solid feel and decent, although not superlative, tuning via the knob. It has a neat looking handle which likes Grundig Satellit 700’s handle…attractive and it folds away to nothing. It was immediately apparent that reception was sensitive and strong.Compared with other similarly-sized radios, warm sound with plenty of audio punch and excellent clarity. It’s rated at 2.5 watts on AC power…even if it’s half that on battery power, it is enough to fill a large room authoritatively and pleasantly. Redsun is closer than any other contender in a similarly-sized radio. The two IF bandwidths are given as 6 KHz and 3 KHz and appear to be well-chosen for program listening. The Wide mode is fairly wide…it lets stronger AM/SW signals retain a natural sounding clarity, while the Narrow filter similarly seems well chosen to eliminate interference under most conditions while maintaining as much clarity as possible. When the Wide filter is too wide, usually at night when there are many adjacent signals, I find I can still get excellent results using the Narrow setting and off-tuning by 1 or 2 KHz. It works well.
FM Stereo/Mono: The RP2100 delivers Stereo FM at the Headphone and Line Out jacks. But there is an oddity. Be sure to keep the FM Stereo/Mono switch in Mono at all times when using the radio with its built-in speaker. If you leave the radio in Stereo you will hear only Right Channel audio from the speaker. Normally you would hear a mono mix of the two channels, but the RP-2100 does not do this. You will also not get the improved reception mono mode often provides when signals are less than perfect, so be sure you keep the switch in Mono.

The Redsun divides the SW spectrum into three bands, SW 1, SW 2 and SW 3, similarly to those analog radios.

Battery Level Indication: The Redsun can operate on either AA or D cells
