|Discontinued Portable Receivers|
The Eton Grundig Edition Satellit is the culmination of 50 years of Satellit models. This latest version provides full reception of longwave, medium wave [AM band], shortwave and FM broadcast. FM stereo is supported to the 3.5mm earphone jack. Single sideband reception is very good for a portable and may be set to LSB or USB. Additionally, it covers the civil VHF aeronautical band. It also functions as a clock radio. 700 alphanumeric (8 character) memories store your favorite stations in seven banks of 100. You can also simply key in the frequency on the keypad. The medium wave step may be set for 9 or 10 kHz. The FM band may be set to start at 64, 76, 87 or 87.5 MHz. The Local/DX switch controls the sensitivity of the radio. There is a built-in clock.
Reception of shortwave signals may be enhanced in some circumstance by engaging the Synchronous Tuning circuit. This feature improves the radios sound quality by reducing distortion and fading. There is a 1/8" (3.5mm) 3 conductor external antenna jack. It is wired differently than on most portables. If you plug in a mono 1/8" phone plug shortwave reception will be muted. You must instead use a stereo (3 conductor) 1/8" phone plug and connect the antenna lead-in to the RING or to the TIP.
Operation is from four AA batteries (not included). If NiMH AA batteries are used, you can recharge the batteries inside the radio with the supplied AC adapter. A carry pouch is included. To conserve battery life, the display will darken after 5 seconds. Touch any key to re-illuminate. Only 6.6 x 4.1 x 1.2 inches.
