Hey Jim:toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Welcome to the group! I hope you will find UltraLighting as interesting
and enjoyable as the rest of us here. Trans-oceanic receptions are
becoming more and more common as DXers figure out how to best use these
The definition of an UltraLight, and a Gallery and Compendium of top
available models, is available at the DXer.ca web site. Just click on the
Ultra-Light File Area icon near the top. Your Grundig Mini 100 is indeed
an UltraLight, but I can't say that the Mini 100 is in the top group.
Fortunately, there are exhaustive ratings as to what models you might want
to consider, depending on your situation.
The $20 Sony you've been hearing about is the Sony SRF-59, widely
available and the receiver that started the whole UltraLight phenomenon.
There is a lot of info on this receiver at the DXer.ca website, including
Gary DeBock's initial review, an SRF-59 Sourcebook, and others.
