Re: Eton E100 "Equivalent"

John H. Bryant <bjohnorcas@...>

I just got another one of those, too, Brett.... I wanna have a back-up.  There are several E100s, new in the box on ebay right now. The going price is about $50.  I suspect that the supply will be soon exhausted.... it is such a good little radio.

I just ordered an E100 from Durham Radio via eBay; they still have several left on a "buy-it-now" auction at $49. I'm anxious to try it out,

I'm the wrong person to ask.... Gary and the Technical Committee (Gil, Kevin S., Joe)  are the ones that rule on such. The E100- was actuaqlly just a cubic inch over the 20 cu./in. general size limit and has neither a switchable pre-amp nor switchable IF filters, either of which would tend to rule out a candidate radio....  So, the E100 is likely fairly unique.  The among things that have been on the market for a while.  The new E1100 hasn't ben tested or evaluated for inclusion in list of Ultralights.  It doesn't have direct 10-pushbutton frequency entry, but may be quite similar, otherwise.  I hope so.  It  retails for just $60 as opposed to the $100 pricetag for the E100.

Given the dwindling supply, are there any "equivalent" current Grundig/Tecsun models that might also be contenders for this class of radio?

I should also mention that an E100 just went for $46.00 Friday night
on ebay (to one of us, I hope) and there are several others available
on the auction site, too.  If I remember, they start at a slightly
higher price, but still at a real discount from suggested retail
price.  This wonderful little radio has been discontinued by Eton, so
if you think that you would like to have one, NOW IS THE TIME
