Re: A new UL radio for me, maybe.

Hi Paul,
A very detailed comparison of the relative DXing merits of the Tecsun PL-606, PL-310 and PL-380 models is contained in the PL-606 review posted in the Ultralightdx file section, and also at
The Tecsun PL-450 (with an excess size and weight) was determined not to qualify for Ultralight radio designation about 3 years ago, so you won't find any reviews for it posted on this site. I did purchase a couple of PL-450's for testing purposes, though, and found them to be slightly more sensitive on AM than the units listed above (because of the longer loopstick). 
73 and Good Luck,
