|Grundig Satellit 750|
I have always loved anything to do with radios and listening to far away places. In my teens I did get into the world of cb radio. I loved to go up on sideband and listen to people that were thousands of miles away from me. I could not believe it when I talked to someone in Northern Italy from here in New York. I did eventually buy a shortwave radio from radio shack. It was nothing spectacular, but it got the job done. I was thoroughly impressed for such a small sized radio how well I could here radio stations in other countries. It was not very expensive and was very easy to carry to where I worked.
Eventually I wanted a more sophisticated shortwave radio. I had a time when my Kenwood TS-2000 Ham Radio was not working, so I had to send it out for repair. I looked around, checked various reviews and spent some income tax money on a nice Grundig Satellit 750. This is a good size shortwave radio and has a lot of features. It has a sort of rack mount look to it, which it what I like. It does have a carrying handle, which makes it somewhat of a portable shortwave radio. It covers the AM, FM, Shortwave and Long Wave as well as Medium Wave Frequencies. I can receive the Ham Radio Frequencies with upper and lower sideband capability. It came in very handy while my Kenwood TS-2000 Ham Radio was out for repair and as I was also studying for my General Ham Radio License. I would definitely recommend this Shortwave radio to anyone looking for a good radio.
