Grundig Satellite 800 (Satellit 800) Purchasing Guide

September 28, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 372

This purchasing guide will provide you with all the information you need to choose the Grundig Satellite 800 for your next short-wave or emergency radio collection. If you want a powerful short-wave radio, as well as a worldwide emergency portable radio receiver, then you'll want to take advantage of this sophisticated yet easy to use radio. Using the latest intuitive technology, the Grundig Salellite 800 is a high performance system providing clear audio to a full range of stations.

This short-wave radio is perfect for both novice and experienced users looking for either worldwide broadcasting or for emergency preparedness. It's powerful, easy to use and convenient to carry, and can be used for shortwave reception as well, which is unusual compared to other shortwave radios. One of the main features contributing to the quality and high performance of its SW and AM reception is the ability to detect signals simultaneously. This helps to reduce interference from adjacent frequencies that cause loss or signs of fading.

Another important feature is the automatic gain control (AGC), a microprocessor installed to control sound settings and signal strength based on atmospheric and other environmental conditions that can interfere with signal reception.

The Satellite Grundig 800 is constructed of the utmost quality and strength, making it capable of picking up weak signals, including daytime shortwave signals. It is so sensitive and selective that it can receive radio stations undetectable by most other radios.

The following description summarizes one of the most popular types of Grundig Satellite 800, the Millennium, and shows how the radio was built with 3-band width using electronic-filters 6.0, 4.0, and 2.3 Kilo Hertz. Moreover, in addition to receiving short-wave signals, AM/FM services are part of what the Satellite 800 Millennium is able to do, everything from receiving clear signals from AM radio and FM stereo radio stations to air traffic communication with the aircraft VHF band reception between 118-137 MHz, and many other sophisticated features.

Along with the extended list of enhanced features, the dynamic 4" built-in speakers add to the high quality audio the Grundig brand offers.
