2046 "Shame Shame" by The Magic Lanterns ... haven't heard this one since it was climbing the charts on 68/WRKO back in 1969/70.
WNBC recording from an Easter Weekend.   Off abruptly 2053. Nice audio.

I owned both the Sony 2010 and 3 E1's. I compared the synch on both units, and as DXace1 says, it was harder to use on the 2010, the E1's is a snap and stays locked on a signal. E1's is definitely superior to the 2010 IMHO.
Here's hoping the new radio employs the same or improved circuitry in it.

Rarely is a good radio reborn, but the Eton E1 will reappear in the late fall under the new name Eton Elite Satellit.  Best thing about this radio was the selectable sideband synchronous detection.  Superior to any other radio ever!
It could make an unlistenable signal on say an NRD-535/545, quite listenable.  The undesirable things were the rubberized case which became sticky with age, the lack of a controlled frequency oscillator, so the frequency was always off a bit. and various quality control issues.  The new version will replace XM satellite option with HD radio, built in.  There is no mention of DMR reception though.  Universal Radio is taking pre orders at 349.95 on their web site.  www.universal-radio.com Here's hoping the new version still has the great synch plus the needed improvements!
