    Have you seen any screwback waveceptor?

    Sorry if this has been discussed before:

    A few days ago I saw a thread about what would an ideal G look like. Some body said atomic frogman, and I had the same idea before. But it occur to me that this may not be possible. If you look at MR-G series carefully you'll discover all of the vintage MR-Gs are magnetic resistant and have screwbacks while all of the recent atomic versions have none of these two features. So I suspect maybe screwbacks also block radio wave.

    If that's so then I think we won't have radio-controlled frogman at least in the near future.
    I need to know if there's any screwback waveceptor. I'd be happy to be proven wrong of course.

    My Giez is a screwback, and it synchs to the Japan and US towers, so it definitely is possible. and it synchs every night by the way

    Heh heh heh....Full metal cased, Rubber (not Resin) band and the part that holds the case in is resin. Its Analog, Atomic, Solar, and has an alarm and stopwatch. I definitely suggest it

    Life is surely full of temptations.

    Then I wonder why would they remove screwback from MRGs.

    My only guess on that would be the fit of the components?? Same thing with the MTG, expensice, but the 4 screws.
