The Grundig Satellit 800 Millennium gives
you the ultimate in features, performance, convenience, and sound. It's
incredibly powerful. Technologically sophisticated. Yet easy and intuitive
to use. Whether you're an experienced short-wave listener or a newcomer
to the world of international broadcasts, this is THE radio to get if
you want the ultimate.
The Grundig Satellit 800 Millennium is able to receive faraway signals
from London, Moscow, Rome, Beijing, Baghdad... and Paris. It brings
shortwave signals home like no other portable radio - with exceptional
sensitivity and selectivity... with powerful features like synchronous
detection to reduce fading-signal distortion... and automatic gain control
(AGC) to keep the volume at a constant level. The Satellit 800 Millennium
is microprocessor controlled (naturally). Think of its onboard computer
as a kind of robot engineer. Adjusting volume. Optimizing reception.
Fit-and-finish are superb. German-engineered Grundig is to radios what
Mercedes, BMW, and Porsche are to automobiles. The audio quality is
superb - with bass and treble tone controls to shape the sound. You'll

marvelous radio. You can own a legend!
In the history of shortwave receivers,
Grundig has maintained a continuously evolving series of high-end portable
radios, decade after decade.
The legend began in 1964 with the Grundig
Satellit 205/Transistor 5000, which was then the most technologically
advanced portable radio ever engineered for the non-military market.
This led to a series of Satellit radios.
All became coveted collector's items.
Here is the pinnacle of 35 years of development:
the Grundig Satellit 800 Millennium. It's the greatest radio Grundig
has ever made and the finest portable shortwave receiver on the planet.
