The Satellit 2100 produced from 1976 - 1979 was the successor of the '2000, with all horizontal dials and identical RF circuitry. The audio circuitry was redesigned and rotary controls less prone to fail were used for volume and tone controls.
The Grundig Satellit 2100 has been in production from 1976 - 1979. This fully solid state set can be operated from batteries, from the internal mains power supply or with a Dryfit accumulator.
The portable set was with 46 x 27 x 12 cm slightly bigger then it's predecessor
and has a weight of 6,3 kg without batteries.
A socket lets You attach an external "SSB unit", this will enable the set to receive CW / morse code transmissions an the amateur bands.
The double conversion design of this set allows acceptable reception quality
of the signals of the major international broadcasters on the shortwave bands.
The double conversion design will keep unwanted spurious signals and crossmodulation
effects away. The calibration of the bandspread dials is a bit better then in earlier sets,
but locating a frequency nearer then 10 - 20 kHz will be a challenging task. With bandspread
switched off, the dial marks are far too coarse to directly tune in to a desired frequency.
As there is no bandspread on the tropical 120 - 60 m bands, the Satellit 2000 will not
be the set of choice.
