Re: Has anyone used a component tuner for AM DXing?

Back in the day, I used a Fisher tube-type tuner for both AM & FM DX, which seemed to do better in terms of adjacent
that it does on FM on a tuner. Bottom line, you might have to make more modifications.
into Sony 2010's is that just putting in narrower filters may not be enough as that doesn't make the same difference
The biggest problem I've encountered is that the tuners I've used are broad as can be. I haven't tried to modifyany of them with narrower filters -- if such are available. But one thing I've learned from putting narrower FM IF filters
channel selectivity but we didn't have any AM IBOC to deal with.
