Hmm...the ad is a bit misleading. Under the HF coverage it says '17.11' when I suspect 1.711 Mhz was meant. Not very good tech writing here...

'DAB' is in a band that the US doesn't use for FM broadcasting.

I wonder how long it will be before eton/Grundig gets themselves into a fit, since I think the 'Satellit' name is trademarked. All they needed to do was change a couple of letters....Mike

£199 translates to about $335. You have to be kidding me. Yuck.

...and who are "soulra" - the ad says the have been making radios for 50years - how come we haven't heard of them before. Surely "Satellit" is a Grundig copyright.

Aha! I've dug a bit deeper....

"© Copyright 2013 Soulra is a registered trademark of Etón Corporation U.S.A. All Rights Reserved."

Same crap - different name

I can see how the DAB part of it would make it interesting, if I were in Europe.

I think the Nevada store used to market it's own radios in the UK -- I used to see their ads in UK SW magazines back in the 1990's.

It looks like there are a couple other, less expensive Soulra brand radios on that site that have DAB as well as AM/FM/SW.

Threads merged since they seem to be talking about the same receiver.

We'll see how this one flies when it starts to get reviews...Mike

For AM BCB, I wonder does it step in 9khz channels? 10khz channels? 1 or 5khz steps?

My guess is that would have 9 kHz steps for LW/AM to make it marketable in Europe. Even my ~$50 Grundig has that settings option.

Well we are in September. Nevada dropped the ad a few weeks ago and I have been told they usually do this if they are not going to stock it. I e-mailed Soulra a couple of times back in July, but so far, no response, not even a basic 'Sorry we have no details yet....' so not impressed.

Hopefully selectable, and/or direct key either set.

I fired off another e-mail to Soulra/Eton yesterday and this time I did get a reply:
