Summary: I purchased it to brush up on my morse code. everything from long wave to air wave is fantastic. The tuning knob feels great, love the REAL signal meter and BFO ( nostalgic, reminds me of my old vacuum tube years). I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in short wave listenning or just copying morse code.
Summary: I'm an amateur radio operator, and most of my radio equipment is on the higher end. Unfortunately my "radio shack" is on the other side of my house and I was looking for a tabletop radio for my bedside. I didn't want to spend a fortune on a high end receiver since I would be mainly using it to fall asleep at night. The Grundig Satellit 750 has been around now for almost 6 years, and in that time has gotten many mixed reviews.
Summary: Stable, easy to handle, good recieving, good selectivity, perhaps sensitivity could be a lttle better at lower frequensies and air-band, good audio. much radio för money. maybe I will buy another one. Thank You for a reciever I like very much.
Summary: Within 6 months the volume control stopped working. Can't use it. My return window has expired and now I have to face the aggravation of sending it to eton corp for them to fix it probably at cost. For a $200+ purchase radio this is unacceptable. I had a Sony before which lasted 6 years with no problems.
Summary: I hooked this baby up to a 100 ft. steel wire between two trees. WOW!!! Russia, Korea, China, BBC, CBC, -- Havana is 1150 miles -- comes booming in like they were broadcasting from my back bedroom. I CAN pick up the air frequencies. I've tried several radios that were supposed to have the air band, but this one picks them up on the built in antenna -- never picked up anything on the other radios. Did I spend too much? yep! Would I give it back for a refund? NOPE!!!
Summary: Like most of you I read many reviews prior to choosing a shortwave radio. After reading many more acceptable reviews then unacceptable reviews I decided to order the Satelite 750. I wanted a radio that looked good, had good features, and was more than just a shortwave radio. I wanted quality sound with AM & FM and Shortwave. I've had my 750 for about fhree weeks now and I can't find anything negative to say about this radio.
Summary: Ive been a radio operator for over forty years and have many radios in my collection.ham cb shortwave cw 2 meter etc id say this radio it the one i play with the most.It seems the more i use it the i love it .I could write pages and pages of why you should have one in your collection.This radio is affordable and well made try it youll like it
Summary: EDIT: Problem fixed -- 5 STARS. (Amazon won't let me change the rating). If you are a SW listener and have some familiarity with these digital radios this may be very good for you -- possibly 4 or 5 stars. Lots of reviews say the 750 is one of the best. It has a very good user interface. For example, to listen to WWV you need only enter the four digits 5000, and after a second's pause, it will tune to it. (Actually, this was about the only station I could reliably get.
Summary: First, I must tip my hat to Amazon and FedEx. I ordered mine with a Saturday Delivery. I ordered my receiver on a Friday morning at 11am, and FedEx was knocking on my door Saturday morning at 10am. 23 hours from ordering to my door, thats amazing! Second, This portable works great! I was a bit worried after reading a lot of the fair and poor ratings, but take it from me, Ive been an active amateur radio operator and avid shortwave listener for over 40 years, you won't be...
A good portable, but not a fully-fledged communications receiver

Summary: The Satellite 750 has earned mixed reviews, reflecting the different perspectives of the purchasers. If you are thinking of buying this radio, you need to understand what it is, and what it isn't. Its origin is rather strange, being a simplified version of the powerful but grossly overpriced ($2K+) Grundig Satellit 800.
