I don't think the display is as well shielded on my replacement G3 as it is on the one Ed got. I noticed several stations on the 49 m SW band (for example 6010, 6090 and 6125 kHz) that have an annoying background tone that varies in frequency with the number of bars on the signal meter. It sure seems like the radio is actually picking these tones up from the display. This happens on sync AM, non-sync AM and SSB (and on both sidebands in sync AM and SSB). These tones are not heard on my Sony 7600GR or CCRadio-SW.

And of course the MW band has unwanted tones all over the place, either from the display or the other digital circuitry.

Also, the keypad is somewhat erratic on my replacement G3. Often pressing the Up button activates the Page function (the button on the keypad just above the Up button).

No matter how good the reception is on a radio, if it cannot last for more than two to three years, that is a big waste of my hard earned money. I used to have the Grundig G5, an excellent receiver when it was new, but only after three years it developed a "PLL circuit not locking problem" where it won't tune to a frequency after the battery voltage fall slightly after nominal use. That is a big shame on Eton.
On the other hand, my two 8-year old 7600GRs, although suffering from sub-par audio (compared to G5), are working like the day they were brand-new in my hands. I will personally nev
