Radio Deal: Eton/Grundig Field BT on sale for $84.51

The Eton/Grundig Field BT

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

Hi Thomas…just an fyi that the price of the Eton Field AM/FM/Shortwave Radio w/RDS and Bluetooth has dropped to $84.51 shipped on Amazon.  I grabbed one hoping it’ll be a “poor man’s” S-8800. Like you say that price could go up at any time…it is Amazon after all. You might want to post this soon.

Thanks, Marty!  I think you’ll be quite happy with the Field BT’s performance. Troy made an excellent post comparing it with the Tecsun S-8800 last year. He and I met to compare the two units and I was pretty impressed with it.  It has its quirks (mainly with tuning), but the audio is amazing and sensitivity is impressive.
