2019 “Cyber Monday” Radio Deals

Original Image by Annie Spratt

This morning, I’ve been searching for Cyber Monday specials that might appeal to radio enthusiasts.

The following are the radios and station accessories I found in Amazon’s Cyber Monday sales section. Sadly, there are no Tecsun or Sangean radios in this category, but Eton still has excellent pricing on the Elite Executive and Mini.  I did purchase another WD 4TB hard drive–the price is excellent and I have at least five of these for making and preserving spectrum recordings.

The following Amazon links are affiliate links, meaning if you purchase through them it will support the SWLing Post. If you do your Christmas shopping through any of our affiliate links, it’s a fantastic way to support the SWLing Post at no cost to you. Of course, if you’d rather not use affiliate links, simply go to Amazon and search for each model name:

The Eton Elite Executive $100 shipped

The Eton Elite Mini $19.99 shipped

Uniden BearTracker Scanner (BCT15X) $119 Shipped

madesmart 10″ Basic Turntable $7.99 shipped (Lazy Susan for small AM radios)

WD 2TB Elements Portable External Hard Drive $54.99 shipped

WD 4TB Elements Desktop Hard Drive $79.99 shipped

C. Crane is also offering 10% off site wide. While not exactly a “door-buster,” this is one of the rare times C. Crane gives a broad discount on their items. There is a shipping charge, so keep this in mind and compare the overall price with those on Amazon that might include free shipping. I think the original CC Skywave is the best deal in their catalog via C. Crane this radio would cost $81.81 plus shipping, via Amazon it would be $89.99 shipped.

In addition, some ham radio retailers have been running promotions since last week: Ham Radio Outlet, DX Engineering, and Universal Radio to name a few.

If you’ve found a great Cyber Monday deal, please let us know in the comments section! Thank you in advance!

Radio Deal: Retekess V115 $14.00 shipped on Amazon

After looking at the Eton Elite Mini sale Christian shared, I discovered that the Retekess V115 is currently $14.00 shipped on Amazon “for a limited time.”

Click here to read our previous reviews of this radio. The V-115 makes for a great portable broadcast receiver/recorder and has very pleasant audio–certainly a benchmark performer in the sub $25 category. It’s a great little backup radio to keep in the car glove compartment or go-bag. This is the lowest prices for the V-115 I’ve ever seen. This receiver typically floats around the $23-25 range.

Radio Deal: Eton Elite Mini $19.99 shipped

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

Thomas: the new Eton Elite Mini is on sale for $19.99 plus free shipping from Amazon.com. This is the latest in Eton’s series of “mini” radios. If you’re looking for a nice stocking stuffer radio, this is a great one! If you already own a previous mini I wouldn’t bother buying because I feel like this might just be an updated body design. Internals are probably the same. Still while the Elite Mini is on sale, it’s actually cheaper than the discounted previous version which is currently $21.

Thanks for the tip, Christian!

Radio Deal: AirSpy 30% off Black Friday Sale

The AirSpy HF+ SDR

Just discovered through the AirSpy Twitter account that they’re offering 30% off all of their products via their authorized retail outlets.

This morning, I posted an article featuring their $169 HF+ Discovery. Another AirSpy SDR I highly recommend is the $199 HF+ SDR. This deal would give you 30% off those prices.

According to AirSpy, the coupon code AWARDWINNING2019 will be activated “within a few hours.” I believe this might mean at midnight UTC because they had mentioned a November 26th activation date. Although the sale extends until December 2, 2019, AirSpy states that supplies are limited.

If you’ve been considering an AirSpy product, now would be a good time to grab one!
