We’ll start right at the top with Eton’s Elite 750 model—a classically styled portable radio that’s loaded with features that make it perfect for shortwave enthusiasts or “radio-heads” who enjoy owning a fine piece of equipment that can expand their listening horizons.

You can expect excellent reception and audio quality in a radio capable of receiving AM, FM, Longwave, Shortwave, SSB, and Aircraft bands. The radio employs Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology to enhance tuning sensitivity. Further, its Selectable Wide/Narrow bandwidth lets listeners reduce interference on some frequencies. Other features include:

  • Easy station selection and tuning by directly entering the frequency with numeric keypad or button tuning, selecting the band and pressing up or down arrows, or spinning the prominent tuning knob
  • Auto Tuning function that allows you to scan from one station to the next
  • 1,000 memory channels divided into two sets of 500 channels (100 for each band) plus 500 customizable channels, with automatic storage of the strongest AM, FM, and LW stations
  • Multiple antenna options: directional 360-degree rotatable ferrite-bar antenna for AM broadcast DXing; telescoping antenna for higher frequencies; and two BNC connectors and spring clip terminals for externally connected antennas
  • The ability to listen to your favorite music and media through the four-inch built-in speaker with a full 2W of audio output; audio devices can be connected through the line input, and sound adjustments can be made with the separate bass and treble controls
  • Two independently programmable alarm timers with snooze that allow you to set multiple alarms, by radio or buzzer, to start your morning in tune with your favorite music, talk show, or news
  • Radio comes with 6 VDC power supply; users supply four D cell alkaline, lithium, or Ni-MH batteries for portable operating.
