Christian notes Eton Executive Traveler price is travelling down

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor (and intrepid radio deal reporter) Christian, who writes:

I’ve been following the price of the Eton Executive Traveler closely on Amazon. Each day, the price is lowered a few cents. It’s currently $41 and some change. I’m guessing Eton has triggered this continuous price drop to sell out all of the inventory at Amazon. Perhaps this model of the Traveler is on the way out??? At least that’s my uneducated guess.  It’s certainly a great deal at $41! Fabulous little travel portable! Anyway, just wanted to share the update. I’ll be keeping an eye on other prices too. One of the benefits of my recent retirement! Hi hi!

Thanks for the tip once again, Christian! And happy retirement!

Giveaway alert: Joe Carr’s Loop Antenna Handbook

–UPDATE: A WINNER HAS BEEN PICKED. THIS CONTEST HAS BEEN CLOSED. THANK YOU!–

Lately I’ve gotten a lot of questions from readers about magnetic loop antennas, certainly a popular topic on the SWLing Post. Good discussions underway.

So, when I discovered an extra copy of Joe Carr’s excellent Loop Antenna Handbook on my bookshelf this morning, it occurred to me to share it with you, readers. I think I won this copy at a Winter SWL Fest a couple years ago; it’s chock-full of Joe’s handy tips and solutions to antenna questions and installation conundrums. It’s still in great shape, and I’m sure will find a good home with a lucky SWLing Post reader.

Interested? Here’s how you can participate…

The Loop Antenna Handbook is chock-full of antenna theory and practical construction projects.

If you’d like to participate in this giveaway, here’s how:  Simply comment on this post, telling us about your favorite radio! Give us the make/model, and just share a few comments about why you love it above all others.

This can be any radio: a shortwave portable, an SDR, a vintage radio, a ham radio transceiver, a handheld, a scanner, an aviation radio, whatever…or, yes, more than one, if you simply can’t choose.

I’ll select a winner at random on Sunday, April 7, 2019.

This contest is open to anyone, anywhere! I’ll post the prize to the winner directly wherever you are. (Note: Well, if you’re an astronaut on the ISS, I’ll have to send it to your drop box!)

I’ll also plan to compile and publish the full list of radio favorites in a future post…stay tuned for that.
