Nice signal. Improving at 1217 with clear ID.

I just got one of these. I always thought they looked pretty cool but the construction is not as robust as it appears in the pictures.
The radio works fine on FM but I'm getting nothing on AM or any of the SW bands, not even a faint hiss. The "S Meter" is pinned.
I cleaned the band switch and downloaded a service manual.
So now to work...

Anyone else have any experience with these?

Equipment / Parts for Grundig Radios?
« on: October 22, 2012, 1900 UTC »
Someone dropped off a Grundig G8 (Traveler II) for repair.

All that is wrong with it is the knob on the volume control just spins. It looked like an easy fix but upon getting it apart, it looks like the pot is made with the control disc as an integral part. The "shaft" between them that broke looks to be 1-1.5 mm in diameter and recessed into the pot a bit so glue is not an option.

I found a few spare parts for sale online but they are things like battery covers and antennas. No volume controls.

Anyone have any ideas? (apart from throwing it out) :)

General Radio Discussion / RCI's Sackville site is up for sale.

Just heard an interview with CBC's head of transmission assets. He says they would like to sell the facility as a going concern but is not optimistic given the sad state of shortwave broadcasting world wide.

Could be a pretty interesting yard sale...

Probably the land will end up as a wind farm.
