Eton Elite Satellit delayed until 2021

Many thanks to a number of SWLing Post readers who have pointed out the recent update from Universal Radio regarding the availability of the Eton Elite Satellit.

Per Universal Radio:

Eton expects this new model to be available in 2021. Beacause of the date uncertainty we are not accepting web pre-orders at this time. Please check back in 2021.

i can’t say I’m very surprised by this since we really haven’t had an update on this model in such a long time. That and, of course, the Covid-19 pandemic has really botched up design, production, and the supply chain for so many products.

I’ll admit it: I’m a bit bummed. I was really looking forward to comparing the new Elite Satellite with my recently acquired E1 XM.

    Only referenced on Universal’s website. Not even mentioned on Eton’s site.
    Rather doubtful it will see the light of day.

      Still in the “believe it when I see it” column, but will be happy to be proven wrong. I won’t be buying one, though, in any case.

    I sure would like to see this get made (again)

    It was the Best Portable I ever had (Sorry I sold it)

    Ordered mine July 24th of 2019 but it doesn’t look like Universal Radio will even be in business to fill that order in 2021.

    Even if it arrives in 2021 will some one tell me why I should spend so much money on a radio to listen to virtually nothing in the English language

    1. Mike C.

      Why do you need someone to tell you? I suppose if you only want to listen to English language broadcasts then NO amount of money spent on any SW receiver would make sense to you. Obviously you personally don’t need to even bother paying attention to this receiver coming out or not. I am baffled as to why you bothered making such an asinine comment.

    I ordered mine from Universal-Radio on March 17, 2020,
    with the announcement then for July 2020 availability,
    but saw now the delay to 2021. Most of my receiver
    collection are vintage receivers from the 1960’s, 1970’s,
    and 1980’s, along with my amateur radio equipment-W2CH.

    Got my order in just last week and they took it…must have been one of the last…now it’s all anticipation.
