Question about Grundig Satellit 800 AM/FM/SW Radio

1 Answer

My G800 has fair reception on AM, so so on FM and limited to high power station on SW. I can not receive ANY ham voice or CW. Also seems like 80 meters has excessive hum. Cannot find a repair service in Ohio who will look at the problem.

Hi.

AM works even if main antenna is disconnected. When it is like that the problem is usually the soldering contacts to antenna. A short in the antenna contact will also result in humming. The radio must be disassembled to check the antenna contacts and the components in receiver stage of the main board.

Regards.

Ginko.

Why no am reception on grundig 800 millinium satelite radio


It depends on your location. Set reception mode to AM waves. Dial in the frequency of the station or enter it using the keypad. To tune in on a station, rotate the radio.

Fm radio works fine but the dab will not find any stations, I have tried different aerials and still no good


What's the make & model of the radio?
Most DAB/FM radios work from the same antenna, so if you receive FM stations, you should receive DAB stations in your area.
It should be noted that DAB transmitters work on lower power than conventional FM transmitters, and so you may be in a weak reception area (for DAB). It should also be noted that DAB uses different frequencies than regular FM stations and household appliances such as laptops,WiFi, microwave ovens, etc can affect DAb reception.

Unable to tune in to programmes on LW, MW and SW bands. FM working fine


Hi,
If you are experiencing bad or NONE AM (MW) reception ,if your receiver has an external antenna connection point here is the solution... It should also have a ground connection as it is rare such a point does not accompany an external antenna connection.
The problem with MW reception is the vast frequency range of the MW band as" 540-1760kHz "
means nighttime fade out, and even heavy static and distortion..( less than SW )
in order to receive a station on LW and MW bands you need to have a "Loop Antenna " that normally supplied by manufacturer..if you cant locate it ,you can buy it in any electronic store..it is a very cheap accessory..additionally both LW and MW works good in daytime with powerful radio stations in your vicinity ..espacially LW..not much stations on these days..except in Europa..MW works better and more stations come after sunset ..
SW band is a little bit different.if you really want to listen SW in depth ,and if your receiver has multiple SW bands as well ,you then need special SW antenna to be attached to your receiver..otherwise it is not worth to listen it due to heavy static and distortion on the band..,unless you want it..just for testing and to see what is available in your area pls attack a plain wire (about 1 meter ) to ext antenna plug and try to search it..if you desire to learn shortwave -Listen To The World please visit the URL below.

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.

Am/fm radio stations not clear... I have the AM antenna attached... but there is no attachment for FM


First of all check for any nearby source of interference.....Move your unit away from all computers, fluorescent lights, neon lights, microwaves, cell phones, and cell phonemag-glass_10x10.gif chargers. These devises tend to produce noise in the medium frequency band, where AM radio is broadcast.
If the unit plugs into the wall with a nonpolarized plug (where both prongs are the same size), try reversing the plug inmag-glass_10x10.gif the outlet. Moving the plug to another outlet might help, too.
check for fault in the antenna lead, (common) or bad earth on the antenna to body
If you don't have an antenna connected to your FM receiver,With a receiver or tuner, connect a wire-loop or T-shaped dipole FM antenna to the back of your unit. Move the antenna until you get the cleanest signal. Use a signal-strength meter or display to gauge signal strength if your unit has one.
  • Step 2 If you're still not getting a good signal, try an indoor amplified antenna, which you'll find at an electronics store. Don't buy one unless you get a guarantee that you can return it for full credit if it doesn't solve your reception problems.
  • Step 3 If your signal is weak because you live a long way from the transmitter, install an outside antenna and mount it as high as is practical. If you're primarily interested in getting signals from one station or from a group of stations in one direction, get a directional antenna and point it toward the transmitters.
  • Step 4 If you're using a portable FM radio where the only antenna is the power cord, stretch the cord as straight as possible and experiment with positioning again.
  • Step 5 Temporarily switch to monaural mode to improve a weak signal on an FM receiver.

    Improve reception


    HI there,

    Well Yes you can improve the reception, please follow the below steps -

    Improve FM Radio Reception -
     
    1. If you don't have an antenna connected to your FM receiver, purchase a simple dipole antenna--a simple T-shape flexible wire-- and connect it to the FM antenna inputs on the receiver. Because FM signals are directional, you'll want to experiment with the positioning of the wire to find the best reception of the station you're trying to receive.
     
    2. If you're still not getting a good signal, try an indoor amplified antenna, which you'll find at an electronics store. Don't buy one unless you get a guarantee that you can return it for full credit if it doesn't solve your reception problems.
     
    3. If your signal is weak because you live a long way from the transmitter, install an outside antenna and mount it as high as is practical. If you're primarily interested in getting signals from one station or from a group of stations in one direction, get a directional antenna and point it toward the transmitters.
     
    4. If you're using a portable FM radio where the only antenna is the power cord, stretch the cord as straight as possible and experiment with positioning again.
     
    5. Temporarily switch to monaural mode to improve a weak signal on an FM receiver.


    Improve AM Reception -
     
    1. Gradually rotate the radio 360 degrees. Leave it in the position where it sounds best.
     
    2. Reverse the AC plug if it isn't polarized. (If you can flip the plug over, then it's non-polarized.)
     
    3. Plug the radio into a different AC outlet.
     
    4. Move the radio closer to a window.
     
    5. Experiment to learn if appliances and powered products in your home are causing interference: computer monitor, television, electric blanket, light dimmer, fluorescent light, hair dryer, air conditioner, smoke detector. If possible, turn off the offending item. Otherwise, move the radio to another room.
     
    6. Upgrade to an external antenna if your receiver, tuner or radio has a place to connect one.
     
    7. Buy a passive AM antenna that doesn't need to be connected to a radio or receiver.

    Good Luck!!

    Thanks

    Insignia box has limited channels.


    Many stations are not at full power for their digital broadcasts since they are broadcasting on analog as well. The signal srength should increase after the changeover. In the meantime, placing the antenna at the highest point will help. Also, changing the antenna to one designed for digital reception will help.

    Excessive static on AM stations. Waves in and out. Not so on car radio. Is there an antenna to eliminate this?


    Turn on the radio and turn the AM/SW BAND switch to the AM position. MW appears in the display. Use the outer ‘fast’ tuning knob to find stations, fine tuning with the inner ‘slow’ knob
    when needed.

    • If there is interference from adjacent stations, place the BAND WIDTH control in the NARROW position. If there is no interference, leave it in the WIDE position.

    • If there is excess background noise, turn on
    the SW LPF switch, which may minimize the noise.

    • If a station is so strong that audio distortion occurs, reduce the gain level with the AM/SW RF GAIN control knob by turning it counterclockwise.

    • The telescopic antenna does not have to be extended for AM reception. The radio has an internal, directional, ferrite-bar antenna for AM reception.

    • To optimize AM reception, swivel the radio until maximum signal strength is achieved.

    All of that being said: It's very tough nowadays to receive AM in this 2008 electronic world. If your able install a longwire SW antenna outside, and have access to a good earth ground, you can boost the AM signals and beat the noise being generated all around you.
