Re: Pictures of AR1733

Very interesting to compare the jpgs of both!
It does indeed look as though the AR 1377 begat the Skywave.

Great, but why-oh-why do they not include the
simplest and cheapest mod which will greatly
improve AM reception - ie make the ferrite
as long as the case width allows ???

The telescopic aerial could be mounted so as
to maximise this..

My guess is that C.Crane took the AR1733 model as a starting point
(since it was made by China's Redsun Company, with whom C.Crane
had a long-term relationship) and redesigned the AR1733's RF and
Digital boards to create a custom "Skywave" radio incorporating
the new Si4736 DSP chip. . . .
