I have had several shortwave recievers over the years. When the radio was first manufactured, there were a lot more stations on the air to listen to and less 803aa a need to do much more than throw 20 feet of wire up in a tree.

This is my second DX DX didn’t have that, but that’s an easy MOD to do.

I looked at tabletops and ultralights, primarily as I really had neither and had plenty or portables. I use it to listen to the airport weather beacons. I kept it for years then gave ate to my elderly dad, who liked it for casual listening. I’ve had ‘ 8803a antennas connected to mine!

I have owned a dx since and have used it extensively. The BFO was easy to operate and the addition of the Realistic amplified antenna helped to bring in signals with great gusto. Results 1 to 4 of 4. Spread the radio love. Reception generally is quite sensitive, with a possible downside that selectivity can suffer.

This portable was a DX king for me, and I still use it as my main bed-side radio today. Middle East and African sta tions don’t follow this rule. While a radio like the Tecsun PL offers newer technology and the addition of an excellent synchronous detector, the DX holds its own against the newer technology.

Defunked it, and cleaned the scratchy slide volume, bass, treble and balance controls and then added some batteries and it works like a charm.

The time now is I knew that it was time to finally remedy that. My heart sank a little bit when I opened the battery compartment to find 2 AA cells left in for the last 5 years that were supposed to power the clock and the memory functions.

New to Ham Radio? I had snagged myself a honey of a bargain! Thank you so much!

I particularly like the separate bass and treble controls. Memories are lacking but for a bandscanner not an overly major issue.

Batteries seem to last forever. Audio level is good 803z both. With my Grundig G3 it will not have any bleed over onto I added that resistor on mine and I have enjoyed the 2 Bandwidth choices ever since I did the mod in If I could find another cheaply, Xts would buy it.

That said, the propagation deities were kind to me and I enjoyed a long night of listening. Seems to me ham radio was a lot more fun back then as was life.

I wanted one from the day I saw it those many years ago, and I can say unequivocally, that it was worth the wait! I hate the combined tone controls that most have now. ast

In the mean time, I can remember perusing the latest Radio Shack catalog, something I did as often as they came out when I saw it. The inside metal bits are a bit rusty, could have belonged to a yauchtie and the batteries had leaked requiring a lot of cleanup.

I recall computing the contact as 10, miles per watt.
