Summary: I purchased this radio to add to my growing interest in amateur radio and short wave. Additionally, I like to listen in on air band traffic, FM and occasionally AM (for Tampa Bay Rays games on a Tampa station normally out of reach from my location).
Absolutely the best radio for this price range and features.

Summary: I must say, this is a pretty amazing receiver. From where I live (Twin Cities metro - Minnesota), I can easily pull in plenty of shortwave stations from across Europe, Russia, the Caribbean and the far east after sunset...just off the whip! SSB works really good on this unit too.
Defective Workmanship and Short Return Policy means NO Customer Satisfaction.

Summary: After three (3) months the volume went fuzzy then quit all together. Cannot ship it back because of short return policy. Therefore I cannot recommend spending your hard earned cash on this brand of radio. For its Price one would expect it to last longer than three (3) months!
Could have been really good .. Except for defects / problems ..

Summary: I thought for awhile that this was going to be a fine receiver. Then the volume control started shorting out to full volume at any position. It isn't just dirt or a bad solder joint. It is a very poorly designed volume control mechanism.
Grundig G3 versus Satellite 750, is Bigger Better?
14 April 2014
Summary: I'm thinking Grundig G4/Sony ICF-SW7600GR for lightweight bed or backseat automobile listening, and Grundig Satellit 750 for the ultimate portable usage, while some have said they also use the 750 for their bedside radio.
Summary: I've been a radio geek since I was a kid in the 60s. I've owned about ten or twelve shortwave, world-band, wide-band receivers in my day. I had a Drake R8-B for a while. This is one of my all time favorites. Everything works. The knobs are all made of metal and not plastic.
Summary: The radio's I compared the 750 to are my...Drake SW8, Kenwood R 1000, Kaito Ka 1103, Sangean ATS-803A and Sangean ATS-909. The Grundig Satellit 750 is a Great radio. I read a lot of reviews and watched a lot of you tube videos before buying it.I found that reviews depends on what you have used...
Summary: This is a great radio for the price. Very stable and does all I expected it to do. Been a HAM for 45 years so know a good receiver for the price when I use one. Yes, there are better but not for this price. Just put a good antenna on it and have fun listening to the world.
Summary: There is a lot that was done right with this radio. It has high sensitivity, good industrial design, it is lightweight, and the audio quality is fairly good. Admittedly, I bought it based on the serious look it presents as well as the relatively good reviews it got here on Amazon.
