Radio Deal: Grundig Satellit 750 via Amazon

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Larry W, who writes:

The Grundig Satellit 750 is now on sale on Amazon.com for $255.95 shipped. This is the best price I have seen in ages! Typically the 750 floats between $300-320. I thought you might want to post this because 750 sales are so rare compared with other radios. I just “bit the bullet” and bought one myself as I’ve been eyeing this rig for a while now!

Thanks for the tip, Larry! As I mention with any Amazon.com sale–which is based on an algorithm–the price can change suddenly without notice.

Radio Deal: Eton Traveler III $35.83 shipped via Amazon.com

Amazon has just posted an excellent price for the Eton Grundig Edition Traveller III shortwave portable: $35.83 shipped!  This is the lowest price I’ve seen for the Traveller III since December when it hit this lowest price for a very brief period of time. As with any Amazon spricing, this could end at any time.

Ultralight DX: A batch of inexpensive Sony SRF-39FPs found on eBay

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Vance Thompson, who writes:

Thought you might be interested to see that several SRF-39FP radios have been up on eBay recently at a fairly reasonable price.

I picked one up when they first were posted, but the price has gone down the last couple of days and even has a “make offer” option with free shipping.

The description indicates that they are pre-owned by inmates at a Tennessee federal prison. As of this writing, there are 8 left.

The one I got was in pretty good shape cosmetically, all things considered, and works perfectly. Given that a brand new FP version of the SRF-39 is not likely to be seen again at $20, a used one such as this with a bit of history is not a bad deal for those of us that missed out when snagging one new was an option.

Although it makes me wonder what they are being swapped out for and if we might see an increase of these pre-owned ones coming up on eBay now.

Thanks for sharing, Vance! Twenty dollars (or possibly less through a Best Offer) is a fantastic deal, in my opinion, for the elusive SRF-39FP. Click here to read out previous posts about the SRF-39FP.  Indeed, I’m mighty tempted to drop $20 on a spare unit myself. (Thanks for enabling me, Vance!)

It appears the seller has a stellar reputation on eBay too.
