The Eton Satellit is the culmination of 50 years of Satellit models. This latest version provides full reception of longwave, medium wave [AM band], shortwave and FM broadcast. FM stereo is supported to the 3.5mm earphone jack. Single sideband reception is very good for a portable and may be set to LSB or USB. Additionally, it covers the civil VHF aeronautical band. It also functions as a clock radio. 700 alphanumeric (8 character) memories store your favorite stations in seven banks of 100. The medium wave step may be set for 9 or 10 kHz. The FM band may be set to start at 64, 76, 87 or 87.5 MHz. The Local/DX switch controls the sensitivity of the radio. There is a built-in clock.
Reception of shortwave signals may be enhanced in some circumstance by engaging the Synchronous Tuning circuit. This feature improves the radios sound quality by reducing distortion and fading. There is a 1/8" (3.5mm) 3 conductor external antenna jack. It is wired differently than on most portables. If you plug in a mono 1/8" phone plug shortwave reception will be muted. You must instead use a stereo (3 conductor) 1/8" Phone Plug and connect the antenna lead-in to the RING or to the TIP.
Operation is from 4 AA batteries (not included). If NiMH AAs are used, you can recharge the batteries inside the radio with the supplied AC adapter. A carry pouch is included. To conserve battery life, the display will darken after 5 seconds. Touch any key to re-illuminate. 6.6 x 4.1 x 1.2 inches.
