Re: Grundig G3 Globe Traveler

My take on the G3:
Good overall mid-sized, mid-priced "all-in-one" portable. Not the best choice for MW DXing; other radios are more sensitive on MW; good enough for general listening. Wide/narrow bandwidth switch. FM and SW very good. Sync and SSB seem to work well. RDS on FM. VHF air band so-so, but a scanner is a better choice for monitoring that band, anyway. Thumbs up.

Jerry...not your only choice, but you should then include the Tecsun PL-660 in your hunt for non-red october receiver.
If you haven't done so,suggest you join and enter discussion/see past messages on the PL-660 over at:
The PL-660 Group comments are very honest, with a lot of interesting ideas and tips on its ownership and operation. Amateurs and SWL's included seem to like it "one of the best" for a variety of sensible reasons. FWIW, I own one as well.
