Re: Grundig Mini 300-- Mini AM Performance
John Cereghin <jcereghin@...>
I actually played with a mini-300 a year or so ago at a local Radio
Shack, but fortunately, I had the good sense to put it back on the
shelf. Now I am a complete technical n00b and I don't know which end
of a soldering iron to hold, but even I could figure out it was a
turkey when I saw I could dial the entire AM band in a half-turn on
the tuning dial.
But it would be interesting to see which UL is the All Time Worst.

slider (ho hum!) but can I pull in a 50kw blowtorch at 100 miles atnight
with a UL off the turkey farm? THAT would be impressive- hi!bands and
compact size, but AM-DXers should save their money, and avoid thismodel.
It puts the thrill back into receiving your locals. Further details(and
