Brilliant Student: Chris Reid

Many thanks to this great translation from Chris. BOY WAS IT FAST.

English Version

To begin reception (of signals)
Just open the suitcase (in this case, the casing, I'd say)
There is no part/mechanism
To place/ move / fiddle with
No frame (an AM frame, I think they mean)
No antenna
To orient
No plug/ electrical ground/ landline
It's "par excellence" (as in, highly recommended, self evidently good)
THE hip accessory/ instrument
Practical and sturdy
(perfect) for the car, camping and the boat
