    My G5 too! turned out to be extreme interference from a fluorescent floor lamp and a plasma television and another fluorescent light in our kitchen.The floor lamp alone would cause
    the radio to not receive any AM or FM just noise. After turning off television and all CFL's reception is
    AWESOME !
    I should have known better after my twenty years of repairing professional two-way radios
    for business,commercial,transportation and public service bands and dealing with interference from many things such as old computers,electric motors,
    microwave ovens,cheap or bad power supply transformers,consumer radios etc..
    A leaky microwave oven in a restaurant once shut down a major talk show during lunch every day for many weeks until the problem was found by checking all possible sources between the Am radio station's microwave link path with a spectrum analyzer.
    Hope this info helps

Nothing but static on all bands


There may be interferences from electrical appliances fridges, TV. Move the radio to some other place. For AM rotate the radio to get the best signal. For FM and SW deploy the telescopic antenna. For SW you may use an external antenna. For SW, to tune in on a station you need to know the broadcast time and the frequency.

Here is your manual, from Eton:

Grundig does not have a manual available for the G5 on their website.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

SW reception is very poor. Can receive no Ham operators only powerful broadcasts like Havanna. AM not bad, FM fair.


SW transmission depends on an atmospheric layer called the ionosphere. The density of ionized atoms present in the layer is dependent on the light from the sun and on solar activity. The rule of thumb is to tune in to the larger meter bands ( 49m, 41 m, 31m, 25m ) in the evening and at night and the shorter meter (31m, 25, 21, ...16, 10) bands in the day.

To tune in to a particular signal you need to know the exact frequency and the broadcast time. You can search the Internet for the frequencies of a particular radio station and the times when that station is broadcasting in direction of your region.

How do set default AM & FM stations? Every time I turn on the radio I have select the station I want.


When you turn on the radio or select a wave band the display shows the last frequency you tuned in. That gives you 3 frequencies: One for the AM nd, one for the FM band (and maybe 3 for SW.
That does not look like much but there is nothing you can do about it. Sorry. It does not have Autamatic Tuning System, nor memory locations to store favorites stations. The portable Grundig/Eton such as the G5, G3, G8 have a plethora of memory locations and ATS.

Grundig Satellit 800 powers on but no sound on any bands or modes. It appears to have a signal on AM but nothing on FM. It's completely dead and the MAIN large tuning dail will not function either. All...


HI,
THE FIRST THING YOU HAVE TO LOOK FOR IS WHAT KIND OF ADAPTER 9V 1AMP YOU SHOULD
HAVE FOR THAT PARTICULAR RADIO AND ANTENNA FOR SW AND FM SHOULD BE CONNECTED.IT MUST BE THE ADAPTER THAT'S ON THE OUTS NOT ENOUGH VOTAGE TO POWER THE RADIO.

No am radio


You realize that the MW is the AM stations....I don't know
why they didn't just put AM on the band select...
Also I could not get MW (AM) on my set once and the
reason was that it was too close to my laptop...
It was interfering with the radio.....

I have a Grundig Satellit 500 "Radio Boy"


If you sent it in 3 times, then I would suggest getting a new one if you know for sure that other's work in that area. If other's don't work, then then you have some type of interception between the radio waves and your radio. There is nothing I can do about that, and probably nothing you can do.

Otherwise, you should get a new radio.

Good luck!
