For those readers who like the Eton “Executive” trim level on their portables, I just noted that Amazon.com has lowered the price of the Executive Traveler to $50 US shipped. For how long? You never know with Amazon, but this is one of the best prices I’ve seen on the Executive Traveler. I gave my Traveler to a friend a couple years ago and now am very tempted to grab the Executive model mostly because I love the built-in case.
Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Christian, who shares yet another Eton deal:
Hi Thomas. Thought your readers might like to know that the Eton Traveller III is on sale at Amazon for $48.53 shipped. This isn’t the lowest price I’ve seen for the III but it’s one of the lower ones so certainly a great deal. I have one and think it’s a great little portable set. I appreciate the little door on the front of the radio that protects some of the controls. When I throw it in a bag there’s less worry. Designed for traveling. Recommend!
Thanks, Christian! I agree that the Traveller III is a great little radio. I gave mine to a friend only because I have so many other similar portables. He travels a lot and I knew it would make for a nice companion. It also has brilliant audio for such a small portable. Certainly a great stocking stuffer to consider at this time of year!

Thank you for the tip, Mike! Since I’m not a fan of sharing credit card information over email, I would encourage you to make the purchase through JayCar’s US website.
I just discovered that Ham Radio Outlet has cut the price of the excellent SDRplay RSPduo by $50 as a holiday special. If you’ve been considering the RSPduo, I would encourage you to jump on this deal. Click here to check out our review of the RSPduo.
