It looks like Eton is going to release a new radio that looks precisely like the well regarded E-1 but with some enhancements such as HD FM and RDS. Hopefully they have corrected problems they had with the display and sticky exterior. Here is some info on it from the SWLing Post. https://swling.com/blog/2019/06/wow-che ... -satellit/

Interesting, I really thought the high end portable radio was dead, with the E1 being the last of the breed. I was lucky enough to score an E1 at a yard sale. I too hope they changed the finish. It took hours of scrubbing to clean off the gooey mess from the degraded "soft" feel finish. Fortunately, the display on mine is good, I keep my fingers crossed whenever I pull that monster out for use.

It's nice that they have at least resurrected the look of the E-1. I hope it performs at least as well and perhaps better. Eton must have noticed how much these were going for on Ebay and decided to give it another go.

Nice to see a new model coming out that features SW as well as AM and FM in HD.

The AM in synchronous looks promising. And if the radio sells well, it may help SWLs during the increase in sunspots which is supposed to happen by 2024-2025.
