Color me impressed. The Eton/Grundig Executive Satellit that I ordered via Amazon arrived yesterday afternoon and I got just a little porch time with a random wire last evening. Good sensitivity on both the whip and the wire. In fact the whip was quite impressive. Did well on SSB once I figured out the fine tuning. Very easy to read.
This was running just over $91 when I ordered last weekend, but today it appears to be $109.99 new.
As I get a bit more time I'll update my observations. I really did not need another portable, but it hit my price point and the rest is history.
