Grundig Executive Traveler
Portable AM/FM/longwave/shortwave radio
Our take on the Grundig Executive Traveler by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
A radio that gives you the world
The Grundig Executive Traveler radio keeps you in touch with the world. In addition to AM and FM, the radio can tune in both longwave and shortwave stations. Stay informed with newscasts and information from around the world. The Executive Traveler comes with a handsome stitched leather case, ready to take on the road.
Great travel features
The Executive Traveler makes a great travel alarm. It has both local and world time settings — helpful if you travel through different time zones. Plus the radio can also display current temperature to help you prepare for the day.
The radio lets you store up to 500 memory stations. Even a globe trotter can keep their favorite stations at hand. You can listen without disturbing others with the radio's headphone jack. The Executive Traveler uses four "AA" batteries (available separately) for portable operation.

What's in the Box:
- AM/FM/LW/SW radio

Absolutely outstanding radio. Great sound, lovely leather travel cover, substantial feel. A bit clumsy to navigate at first (what happened to BUTTONS?), but the quality of the piece overrides the confusing operation.

Grundig Executive Traveler Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Executive Traveler III: The Grundig Executive Traveler III is an AM/FM/Longwave/Shortwave Radio with ATS (Auto Tuning Storage) and RDS (Radio Data System). It comes with a stitched leather travel wallet.
AM/FM/LW/SW: The Executive Traveler III receives every radio wavelength - including AM(MW), FM, Longwave (LW) and Shortwave (SW) - at home or abroad. It is easy to set the station spacing and frequency so your stations will come in loud and clear wherever you are. You now can keep up with the latest news and information from anywhere in the world.
RDS (Radio Data System): The Executive Traveler III radio features RDS for FM. RDS stands for Radio Data System and it enables FM broadcasters to deliver more than just an analog audio signal, but also to transmit digital data, like the station's call letters, style of music, song title, artist and more.
Internal & External Antennas: When listening to AM stations, simply rotate the radio for the best reception, thanks to the internal antenna. For enhanced FM and SW reception, simply pull up the telescoping antenna.
Manual or Auto Tuning: The Grundig Executive Traveler III offers manual and auto tuning. You can store up to 500 memory presets.
LCD Screen: You'll see your selected station in high-contrast, bright orange on the front-panel LCD screen.
Mono Speaker & Headphone Jack: The Grundig Executive Traveler III is outfitted with a mono-speaker. When you want to listen to the radio privately, just plug in a set of headphones (sold separately) to the unit's 3.5mm headphone jack. The radio's speaker is muted when headphones are plugged in.
Clock, Alarm & Timer: With local and world time settings, radio and buzzer alarm clock settings, sleep timer (1-120 min) and snooze light, the Executive Traveler III keeps you in time from any time zone. And if you want to prevent the radio or alarm from turning on all together, just hit "Lock".
Temperature Display: The Grundig Executive Traveler III even displays the temperature to help you prepare for the day.
AC or Battery Powered: The Grundig Executive Traveler III can be powered by 4 "AA" batteries or a 6V DC adapter (both sold separately).

It has an internal antenna for AM reception and a telescoping antenna for FM & SW. There is no input for connecting an external antenna. I hope that helps. My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=5 [ Ryan May 13, 2017 ] Staff
