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: 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.

Christian notes Eton Executive Traveler price is travelling down

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

I’ve been following the price of the Eton Executive Traveler closely on Amazon. Each day, the price is lowered a few cents. It’s currently $41 and some change. I’m guessing Eton has triggered this continuous price drop to sell out all of the inventory at Amazon. Perhaps this model of the Traveler is on the way out??? At least that’s my uneducated guess.  It’s certainly a great deal at $41! Fabulous little travel portable! Anyway, just wanted to share the update. I’ll be keeping an eye on other prices too. One of the benefits of my recent retirement! Hi hi!

Thanks for the tip once again, Christian! And happy retirement!

Radio Deal: Eton Executive Traveler $50.00 shipped

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.

Tom Stiles’ preliminary look at the new Eton Executive Traveler III

I’ve just discovered our buddy, Tom Stiles, has taken delivery of the new Eton Executive Traveler III. He’s posted a casual overview of this little receiver on his YouTube Channel:

I’m looking forward to comparisons between the two versions of the radio, but like Tom, I suspect these Traveler III versions are identical in terms of receiver design. The changes/updates in the model are likely only cosmetic.

I love the leather cover on the new Executive version, though I wish the antenna could be extended with the cover in place. Seems to me if the leather cover were designed to fold open from the top down (from the front of the radio) instead of bottom up, it would have remedied this problem.

I believe the Traveler III, in general, is an excellent little portable–certainly a proper ultralight MW DX machine (check out how it scored in Gary DeBock’s comparison). No SSB mode, but it does have great features like alarms and RDS for those who like to travel.

A few retailers now have the Executive Traveler III in stock:
