Another radio on my radar is the Grundig Satelit 750.
Its cheaper n smaller than the 800, but is it as good?

I use the Satellit 800 routinely to received weather fax, and it works very well. It is just a wee bit BIG though. I will probably look around for a smaller radio for when we shove off, but for now I can attest to the engineering behind the Satellit models.
