The Tecsun PL-606

Kevin Schanilec

Welcome to Ultralighting!

Yes, the PL-606 is indeed an Ultralight. The list has not been updated since the PL-606 burst onto the scene recently, but that will be rectified shortly.

And yes, the use of an external antenna like the AN-200 puts it into the Unlimited class for purposes of loggings, records, and contests.

I ordered the Tecsun PL 606 from Anon. How can you go wrong for 40.00 plus shipping? I'll post a comparison when I get the Tecsun. In the meantime, I'm really enjoying the G6. although I'm new to Ultralight, I've been SWLing & MW Dxing since 1966 (ok, I'm an OM). And by the way, although there's been a lot of discussion on the 606, I haven't seen where it's been officially approved either, but I may be looking in the wrong place. I've also ordered an AN-200 loop from Universal. Am I right in assuming if you use an external antenna you are in the unlimited class as opposed to barefoot?

That just means that your reception reports will not qualify under ultralight. I have 2 radios that I use to listen, neither are ultralight. I still like to read through this group for ideas on how to improve my listening experience and to the accomplishments of others.

Was 59.95 at RS on closeout here (Knoxville, TN), still better than the sale price of 71.00. So I picked one up. That means I still don't have a qualified radio, but am undecided between the top models on the list. It will be interesting to see how the DSP ultralights compare with this. Meanwhile, I'm going to play around with the G6. I have a DX-398 and an Eton E-1 to compare with it.
