    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

DSP AWOL on 750?

I remember reading the official release from Eton a few months back about how the Satellit 750 would have DSP.

Universal Radio added the rig to their catalog with a product description a short time later and noted the radio would have DSP. Universal recently updated the 750 page in their online catalog to reflect a street price and the fact that release of the radio has been pushed back from mid-March until mid-June. But the product description on the page no longer mentions DSP capability. Without DSP AND AM sync, I'd think they'd be hard pressed to get the $300 they want on the street price.

Anyone heard anything? Is DSP a cost casualty now for the radio, or did Universal just inadvertently drop the info on DSP on their website?

I must admit I don't recall it clearly, but there was an engineering mockup of the new Eton at the Winterfest, and I think the point was made that there was no AM sync on this radio.
The radio, in form, resembles a marriage between the Sony ICF6800W series and the rotatable AM loopstick of the Panasonic RF2200. Several folks I talked to at the Winterfest made this comment.

Still though, I believe the expected price is around USD400 or thereabouts, it fills a niche in the mid priced semi portable market, assuming it performs well and doesn't have the various display and other issues their flagship E1XM has.

I guess we'll wait and see. 73 Mike

No...I know there's no sync AM. But if there's not gonna be DSP, either, I think they're gonna have a hard time selling them. And Universal is listing them at $299
