ETON E1 AM/FM/shortwave SSB Radio
This product has been discontinued.
The etón E1 is a microprocessor controlled,synthesized, world band receiver with continuous coverage capability from 100 kHz through 30 MHz and from 76 MHz through 108 MHz which includes the AM broadcast and shortwave bands as well as the FM broadcast band.
The receiver offers excellent sensitivity,selectivity, dynamic range,and features that permit easy tuning of desired stations.Conveniently located front panel controls allow for rapid operator programming and ease of use.The units can be operated from either the supplied AC ADAPTER,an external 7 to 14 VDC source,or from four "D" cell batteries (not supplied) for portable operation.A low battery voltage indication is displayed when that condition exists.
Three electronically switched IF filters are provided to provide optimum interference rejection for each mode. The front panel dot matrix liquid crystal display provides feedback of the current status of the receiver.The seven digit frequency display provides resolution to 10 Hz in the AM broadcast and Shortwave bands. Resolution to 20 kHz is displayed in the FM broadcast band. Backlighting of the display is selectable by a “LIGHT” key on top of the cabinet. To prolong battery life with internal battery operation,the backlighting automatically turns off after a short delay following a function change or retuning of the receiver unless it is specifically locked in the ON mode.
When the receiver is turned off,the display provides either the Local time or Greenwich Mean time (GMT), selectable in either the off or on state by the user . Reception modes include Single Sideband (LSB & USB) and AM in the Shortwave,MW (AM broadcast) and LW bands. For the LW, Shortwave and MW bands,a selectable sideband synchronous detector (SYNC) allows for enhanced AM reception by eliminating or reducing distortion due to fading signals or a strong adjacent signal. During FM broadcast use,stereo reception is available through the use of headphones,or by connecting the
line out jack to an external stereo system.
Other built-in reception aids include selectable slow, fast,or automatic AGC time constant,scanning of memory channels,either by time or by carrier presence,passband tuning and squelch as well as treble and bass controls.Two independent,real time clocks provide Local or GMT time selection.Also provided are a two event timer,a SLEEP timer,and a SNOOZE mode.
A programmable memory area allows for 1700 independent receiver set up memories.The first 500 of these memory channels allow names to be attached to the frequencies and modes stored.The remaining 1200 memory channels allow frequencies to be stored by country.There are 111 country names factory stored in this bank of memory with 10 memory channels available per country and 90 memory channels remaining with no country assigned.These country names can be modified or added to by the user.These memories do not require battery backup and are thus unaffected by power interruptions.
All parameters associated with a particular memory channel are stored including the frequency, mode, bandwidth, passband tuning setting, fast, slow, or automatic AGC and synchronous detector state.These memory channels may be accessed manually or through a time scan with each channel monitored for a 5 second period,or carrier presence.
