Still Traveling Executively

I am still playing with my latest radio acquisition: an Eton Grundig Executive Traveler.

Some commenters claim that the radio is not the most sensitive FM radio, but I managed to work a new station on FM using the Traveler: W251BY on 98.1 MHz from Patchogue on Long Island transmitting 250 watts 54 miles to the south-southeast. My opinion the Traveler is sensitive on FM, but could be more selective.

In my first post about the Traveler, I complained about the manual. Playing with the radio, I have an additional complaint about the manual. The manual explains how to save a channel to memory, but it is not clear when it comes to explaining how to recall what you saved to memory. I spent about 15 minutes one night trying to figure out how to do it. Here's how:

Assuming you have saved channels to memory:

1. Short press the VF/VM STEP button until the display reads "PRESET"

2. Use the TUNING control to select the saved preset channel.

Easy enough once you know how!
