I had a Grundig model (I believe the 865)that I sold on E-Bay a while back. Yours seems to have a different speaker grill pattern than mine did.
Is your radio made in Germany or Portugal? Mine was made in Portugal.

I had never questioned the 865's country of origin but I just took a look and see that indeed it is from the Portugal factory. Grundig produced many similar models with different names depending on where they expected to export them. Some of Grundig's most renown latter day products were produced at the Portugal factory so they must have been running a tight ship there. Thanks for asking.

Oh, real Grundig. Nice.

I need to figure out how to recap my Satellit 210 so it picks up SW again. One of the problems with vintage radios.

Angelo

No doubt that the 865 had "The Grundig Sound." Everything they made back then seemed to sound great, Portugal or Germany. I don't think today's Made In China "Grundig Branded" radios are quite up to par.
