Re: [HCDX]: GRUNDIG Satellite 800 + 900

On the website of Radio Netherlands, part Medianetwork - "Radio Show"
( there is an announcement about
the fact that "later in November Medianetwork will look in more detail at
the new Grundig Satellit 800, a joint development between the US
manufacturer of Drake and Grundig North America. One of the predecessors,
the Satellit 650, was made in Portugal. This later set is made in the
Peoples Republic of China. Medianetwork will talk to the person who has
developed the project and will ask why the receiver is not expected in
Europe for some time".

That's all according to Medianetwork. I hope the broadcast later in November
will give an answer to (a part of) your questions.
