Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Ivan Cholakov (NO2CW), who comments:

Just FYI US retailer Fry’s has the Grundig Traveler III for $35 ending Dec 23rd.

Thanks for the tip, Ivan!  This may require a store pickup as online shipping doesn’t appear to be an option.

Also, the photo on Fry’s shows the Executive version of the Traveller III with case–the UPC number, however, indicates this is the original black chassis version of the Traveller III. There is no difference in performance–I note this only because the image is a little misleading.

Still, $35 is a great price for the Traveller III!

      I picked up the Executive Satellit at my local Fry’s for $127 plus tax. Great price. Crummy radio. I returned it 24 hours later. I suppose I should have paid more attention to the various reviews out there on this unit. I missed the fact that the Automatic Tuning System (ATS) only works on the FM band. This was a complete deal breaker for me. Additionally, this radio is so stupidly complicated “Press the F7 button…” Really? I was going to have to carry the manual with me wherever I went. Too many “features” that required a sequence of button presses that weren’t labeled on the unit. I think I’ll spend my money on either a Tecsun PL880 or wait for a CCrane Skywave SSB once they work out the issues reported with the first batch. I’m really disappointed with the Satellit though. I was hoping it would be a good portable with SSB but that simply wasn’t the case for me.

    It does appear to be in store only but if you sign up for promo emails the price is further reduced to $28.66! I believe you are correct that this is the older model (Not the Executive) but still would make a great gift!
