Hi Sarmento!


Is the “ultralight ferrite loop” a tuned or an unturned loop? Could you post some details of construction?

Subject: [ultralightdx] Tecsun PL380



Hi, I've just purchased a Tecsun PL380 in order to have it tested for MW Dxing. I mainly intend to use it with magnetically coupling loops, both ferrite and air coil.

I have read something about it, and I wonder about using its narrow filter capability through DSP together with a high selective loop antenna could give good results.

I made another experimental loop antenna which I think it could be considered as a "ultralight ferrite loop" using Litz wire and covering from 520 kHz to 1700 kHz. Using it with a Sony 7600GR has proven to be adequate to get better signal level and selectivity without front-end overload.

Main consideration here is performance and portability for MW dxing using the ultralight concept.
