I like to listen in on air band traffic

Joe FL, Amazon

  • 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). The Eton Grundig Satelit 750 is a good value for a multi-band table radio. Sure, I wished it had scanning capabilities on the air band, blue tooth capabilities and more of the latest tech advancements.

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. Solid performance on AM...especially when DX'ing. That's where the built-in rotatable Ferrite antenna really proves its value. FM band is clear and crisp.

Defective Workmanship and Short Return Policy means NO Customer Satisfaction.

Kancho, Amazon
21 January 2015
  • 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! Personally, and after this experience, I will never buy another Grundig Product.

The Grundig Satellit 750's Are Amazing Receivers That Sell Out Quickly

macybanton, Ebay
5 October 2014
  • Summary: The Grundig Satellit 750 is an excellent radio. I've only owned mine for a little over a month, so I should say that I am still learning how to use all the features that it has. Reception of AM, FM and Shortwave is exceptional. AM with the rotatable antenna, FM and Shortwave with the very impressive telescopic antenna.

  • Summary: I bought this Product because I was looking for a shortwave receiver. I like its perfomance on shortwave band. I had some problems to receive some shortwave broadcasting from Scandinavian duringthe day. But This brand has addressed my issues.

Grundig G3 versus Satellite 750, is Bigger Better?

Roger, Amazon
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. Icom R75 for vehicle or desktop listening, while using the external sound output with a home or vehicle (or other) amplified speaker system.

I'm really enjoying this radio.

SteveS, Amazon
11 March 2014
  • 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. Sure, I wish it had dual clocks and a better memory system. But for just tooling around the SW, MW, LW, FM and AIR bands... It has been working for me. I love it.

Great Radio

Doug, Amazon
26 February 2014
  • 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 before. The 750 holds it's own! Works great on all bands and has great audio that is loud. SSB stays dead on and sounds great. The mw band is very good..

Great radio

Coater, Amazon
12 February 2014
  • 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.

A Chinese version of Grundig

working stiff "working stiff", Amazon
30 January 2014
  • 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. When you consider what you get today for $250, it's good value. That said, there is something disappointing about it in terms of 'digital' noise in the audio output.
