    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:

Eton New Eton Receiver - like the E1?

Thanks to a notice on WoR, the latest SWL Post has news of a new Eton portatop (is it?) similar in form, at least, to the E1 and the E1XM. Still no carrying handle, though (stupid exclusion, in my book)...

Wow! Check out the new Eton Elite Satellit!

The reports suggest that the sticky mess on the radio and several other faults have been corrected. Beyond that, and the fact that the E1 series had some serious quality control faults - well, I guess we'll see. The target release date is late summer this year. Unlike it's predecessor, I kinda doubt RL Drake will be involved in this radio.

Those that still have operational E1s have all been very high on its performance. I guess we'll see....Mike
