Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Joshua Goldsmith, who notes that the Eton Mini is on sale at Woot for $17.99 US. That’s the best price I believe I’ve seen on this little radio–certainly a nice stocking stuffer!
I just received an announcement from C.Crane noting that their Cyber Monday sale discounts everything in their catalog by 10%. If you’ve been considering one of their radios or accessories, today is a great day to pull the trigger. It’s rare that C.Crane discounts are lower than 10%.
I just received an email announcement from Radioddity noting their holiday sale which lasts through November 30, 2020. Much of their inventory has been discounted.
They’ve also added “Flash Sale” packages which include the Xiegu G90, Xiegu X5105, and the new GSOC. If you’ve been considering the purchase of any of these items, I’d encourage you to check them out:
- Xiegu G90 + GSOC + Holder + CE-19 + PAX100 + LPFX7: $999 US
- Xiegu X5105 + CE919 + Watch: $519.99
- Xiegu GSOC + Wrist Watch: $449
The flash sale begins at 8 AM EST, November 30, 2020, and quantities on the packages are limited. Click here to check out Radioddity.
Xiegu GSOC Update
I’ll post more about this in the coming days, but I updated the firmware in the GSOC controller this weekend and am now testing the new functionality. A few features have been added and a few bugs fixed. I’m still finding CW operation a bit tricky–I believe there may still be some latency in the sidetone audio. For updates, follow the tag: GSOC

Thank you for the tips, Paul. Wow–if I had the funds, I would jump on the FTDX101D! Could Father Christmas be that generous–? One can dream! 🙂
Simply add the radio to our shopping cart and the price will be adjusted automatically.
The CCRadio 2E, along with the CCRadio 3, is considered one of the best mediumwave portable radios currently in production. If you’ve been considering purchasing one, this is a good time.
Just a heads up that Bioenno Power is having a 2020 Thanksgiving sale and offering a 10% discount with the coupon code “THANKS”.
I’m a huge fan of Bioenno’s batteries and just pulled the trigger on yet another LiFePo battery. This time, a compact 3 aH battery. This will be more than enough battery to play QRP for hours without recharging.
Side note: I’m also working on a project for my parents converting their living room lamp into a DC LED lamp with battery backup. Their power outages seem to be so frequent as of late, I know they’ll appreciate a lamp that will work regardless if the power grid is up or not. I’ve already purchased a 12V LED Edison-style bulb and now will pair it with a 4.5 aH Bioenno battery.
Airspy is once again offering huge discounts during their 2020 Black Friday promotion.
That’s such a good deal, I’m contemplating the purchase of a second one.
Both the HF+ Discovery SDR and YouLoop are the major components of my portable SDR DXing kit. During the Black Friday sale, you can purchase both for $141 US! That’s much less than the normal price of the HF+ Discovery alone.
It seems all Airspy distributors are participating in the sale, so click here to find the distributor that ships to your part of the world.
[Just found out the Frugal Radio channel also discovered this sale!]
