Radio Deal: Eton Executive Traveler on Amazon

 

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

The price of the Eton Executive Traveler was down several months ago, but then increased on Amazon. I’ve been watching and now prices are back down to historic lows for this modelare back down to historic lows for this model. As with any Amazon deal, you snooze, you lose, because their prices are dynamic and can change without warning.

Thanks for the tip once again, Christian! It’s ironic, I just ran into my buddy Kevin at the W4DXCC conference and he told me he loves the Traveler so much, he bought two. It’s a great value at $36.

Radio Deal: Panasonic RF-2400D on Amazon

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Paul, who notes that the Panasonic RF-2400D is currently on sale at Amazon.com for $23.52 shipped.

If you’ve been looking for a super-basic, AM/FM portable radio, the RF-2400D is worth considering. The RF-2400D reminds me of the Sony ICF-38: slide rule dial, few controls and a power cord that plugs directly into the back (no “wall wart” style power supply needed). Like most modern portables, the 2400D is a DSP receiver, thus subject to “steps” as you band scan across the analog dial. It’s all pretty smooth, though and feels like an analog radio. I have spent a little time with the RF-2400D and thought it to be a pleasant, little simple radio. It’s not a DX machine, but can easily receive all of your local stations and night time flame throwers.

I often receive inquiries from readers who are seeking a simple radio for an elderly friend or relative–one that’s tactile, easy to operate, and affordable.  The Panasonic RF-2400D fits the bill!

Radio Deal: Eton Executive series shortwave radios hitting all-time low prices

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Christian, who writes:

Although I fear I sound like a broken record, your readers should be aware that this is a good time to buy Eton Executive series radios. On Amazon the prices are edging lower everyday while supplies last. Obviously Eton is making way for their new Elite series.

Here are the current prices. Many are all time low prices…

Thank you for the tip, Christian!

If you’d rather not use affiliate links, simply go to Amazon and do a manual search using the model names above and search for those prices.

I agree with you, Christian: Eton is obviously liquidating their “Executive” models to make way for the new Elite series.

Radio deal: Eton Executive Traveler $36.22 shipped

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Christian, who notes that the price of the Eton Executive Traveler continues to go down on Amazon. Christian notes:

The price is now less than $37US shipped. I’m sure the price will continue to decline until inventory is sold out but I’ve a feeling that once they’re gone, they’re gone. Truly a bargain for this little receiver that had a sales price of $79.99 for years.

Thanks, again, Christian for the tip!
