Eton Satellit AM/FM/LW/SW Portable Radio Receiver
The Eton Satellit is the culmination of 50 years of Satellit models. This latest version provides full reception of longwave, medium wave [AM band], shortwave and FM broadcast. FM stereo is supported to the 3.5mm earphone jack. Single sideband reception is very good for a portable and may be set to LSB or USB. Additionally, it covers the civil VHF aeronautical band. It also functions as a clock radio. 700 alphanumeric (8 character) memories store your favorite stations in seven banks of 100. The medium wave step may be set for 9 or 10 kHz. The FM band may be set to start at 64, 76, 87 or 87.5 MHz. The Local/DX switch controls the sensitivity of the radio. There is a built-in clock.
Reception of shortwave signals may be enhanced in some circumstance by engaging the Synchronous Tuning circuit. This feature improves the radios sound quality by reducing distortion and fading. There is a 1/8" (3.5mm) 3 conductor external antenna jack. It is wired differently than on most portables. If you plug in a mono 1/8" phone plug shortwave reception will be muted. You must instead use a stereo (3 conductor) 1/8" Phone Plug and connect the antenna lead-in to the RING or to the TIP.
Operation is from 4 AA batteries (not included). If NiMH AAs are used, you can recharge the batteries inside the radio with the supplied AC adapter. A carry pouch is included. To conserve battery life, the display will darken after 5 seconds. Touch any key to re-illuminate. 6.6 x 4.1 x 1.2 inches.
5 Decades of Excellence:
The Satellit series keeps getting better and better. The latest arrival, the Etón Satellit, is no exception. After 50 years of Satellit radios, this latest innovation delivers the best performance in radio reception and audio quality and it’s got the looks and style to match.
Now hear this:
The Etón Satellit receives every radio wavelength—AM(MW), FM with RDS, LW, and Shortwave (SW) —at home or abroad. Plus, it also receives VHF aircraft band, Single Sideband (SSB) and includes a PLL tuner so your AM signal is strong and clear.
In sync…and sensitive:
The Satellit’s Sync Detector improves the radios sound quality by lowering distortion and fading. And it’s way more sensitive so it can pick up weaker signals.
The Satellit radio features RDS for FM so you can see the station’s call letters, style of music, song title, artist and more.
