Re: Longwave Question

Kevin Schanilec

There are a few UK radios that, on paper, may well qualify as ULRs and which have LW coverage. The Roberts (Sangean) R9924, Sports 925 and Sports 994, and the "Steepletone Mw/Lw/Fm Sports Receiver Pocket Radio", were all spotted on just now. They are all analog sets, so while one could fine tune them, knowing what frequency you are on could be a challenge. Also, I presume that they could be easily re-aligned to provide coverage at least into the 300+ kHz range for beacons.

The Roberts Sports 988 looks like a Sangean DT200 with LW, so digital but likely with 9 khz tuning steps and strictly limited to 153-279 khz.

Do any of you in the UK have any experience with these sets???
