OH how I wanted this radio to work. As with all Grundig radios (that I've owned and I have a few), it comes in that nice nifty black slide box, everything all wrapped up with that new aroma.

First I do is quickly look over everything and I see there is no AC charger! NO just a Mini-USB jack (they call it high speed)! This I consider to be a real downfall. To charge the radio you must connect it to your computer. However you can purchase the AC part to plug the USB wire into.

If you have a smartphone, it's most likely you have this part already. Just make sure it's 5V output. Just remove the wire from it and put the radio USB wire into it. I didn't think of this, so I purchased one at a local electronics store for five dollars. It's a small black square the USB wire goes into. It took just under three hours charging AC on the initial charge upon receiving it.

The battery, as the directions say make sure you fully charge it before using. Then FULLY drain it and fully charge, then fully drain THREE times before you start charging it 3/4 empty or "preventative" or such.

The radio itself has a "boxy" sound to it. This is surprising as there are two speakers, and from another Grundig radio that's a single speaker, the sound is much better.

It's very compact, and comes with a black drawstring bag to carry it in.

What's maddening is each time you preset a channel it auto starts at 25. So you must scroll all the way back down, and if you are not careful you may go over a channel you already have set. Other radios start at the first free number and it blinks or such if you attempt to set on a channel that's already set.

I've had no problems with the record feature.

Being an Amateur Radio Operator and a long time world band listener I was excited to test out the new Grundig G2 Reporter radio. Unfortunately, the radio turned out to be a disappointment. Unboxing, you'll find the radio comes with a good assortment of accessories. Carry strap, USB cable, soft carry case, earphone, etc. The included manual is quite poor. Since the G2's controls and functions are quirky, this doesn't help matters. The radio is very lightweight, and feels a little cheap. The built in stand is very thin plastic and seems like it won't last long if used regularly. After charging up the built-in proprietary battery, I put the radio to the test. Results were very mixed. FM band worked well, but the stereo sound from the small built in speakers wasn't very good. This wasn't entirely unexpected considering their size. The AM/MW worked well too, but sensitivity was just average at best. If you plan on doing any MW Dxing, this isn't the radio for that. Scanning the entire AM band at night, there wasn't a hint of a distant station. My old GE SuperRadio, and Grundig 350 were picking up several stations 100's of miles away. On the SW bands, I found the radio worked quite well. Sensitivity and selectivity were good. I had no problem picking up broadcasts from around the world with the telescopic antenna. The G2 does not have an input for an external antenna, so you're limited to the telescopic antenna unless you use an alligator clip to clip on a wire antenna. There is another major con with the G2 as a shortwave receiver. You can only tune in 5KHz steps, so fine tuning is impossible. The final feature is what is supposed to make the G2 stand apart from other world band receivers.Read more ›

My very first shortwave radio is the ETON Traveler II Digital G8 AM/FM/LW/Shortwave Radio with Auto Tuning Storage I bought here at Amazon on July 20, 2011. As an avid Scanner fan with assorted Uniden (and other brand) scanners, I always lusted after a dedicated short wave radio. But one I could figure out how to use without needing to go back to school. I loved my Eton Traveler II so when I saw this I jumped all over it. There are things I love about this and a thing or two I am not crazy about as well.

Novel feature I stumble onto is not all that easy but you can set up the alarm to wake you to a chosen MP3. Have fun setting it up however. The fact I have that option is fun to me anyway. The FM band is simply amazing in it's ability to find stations clearly in my fringe area. The sound is just "OK" however with no ability to adjust bass etc on radio broadcasts. It does however have "sound fields" available on any recording playbacks. Seems counter intuitive to me anyway as I would prefer to adjust sound on LISTENING and have that automatically carried over to the recording?

The manual is somewhat vague to me in most areas but is good enough to get me through most everything I need to do without additional help. But I am still learning. Some quick facts on this radio are:
- BL 5C lithium ion battery= 1050 mah capacity-Charge from you computer or YOU buy an external direct charger (BOO!)-Reset button inside there too
-micro SD card slot
-Text reader for simple .txt files
-Has a line input jack but NO external antennae jack (again a big BOO!
