Well, I picked up one at Radio Shack this morning. Verdict? I'm not impressed, definitely not a replacement for my G5. It isn't nearly as sensitive as the G5. Stations that are armchair copy on the G5 are barely readable on the G3. Sync worked reasonably well, when it works. Part of the problem is reduced sensitivity of the radio, and also images from local MW station 1080am, resulting in a garbled mess. When it does work, audio is much bassier, similar to the G5s audio. Regular audio treble-heavy. Radio seems to be poorly shielded, MW ghosts and images are numerous, and mix with SW stations. AM also suffers from reduced sensitivity as well, but no other issues. FM is as sensitive as the G5. RDS works well. Air band same as G6, no scan or squelch. Picked up ATIS from local airport, very faint, easy copy on a scanner. So as with the G6, Air band is more of an afterthought, had very few image issues. Overall, a 3 out of 5. I'm going to return it tomorrow. Too bad, Grundig/Eton really could have had a great radio, they could have used all the time from when it was announced and repeatedly delayed to fix the problems. Maybe version 3 will correct the issues.
