Re: ULTRALIGHT DX..... REPLY to JACK LEONARD..RE SONY SRF-T615 ULR
Welcome to the Group..and thanks for writing.....
I started out DXing with an SRF-59 in Jan/2008....but I switiched over to the SONY SRF-T615 about the beginning of Feb/2008. The SRF-59 is a GREAT Little Pocket Radio....But I wanted something with a DIGITAL READOUT for ease of Tuning.
I have been using the SRF-T615 ever since..and Boy am I glad I switched!! I just bought a 2nd One last month.....for a Back Up just in Case!! In my Opinion...It is the Best STOCK ULR going!! Some will argue that point........but there are others who will surely back me on this. It is a little (Or a LOT) on the expensive side.....but I don't regret buying 2 of them...and even with all the other sets I have ...it is still the one I always reach to for most of my DX!!
It's a Killer little Machine.......and probably one of the most ergonomic ULRs out there.
My Log Totals using this Radio....along with a few others from time to time is now 644 Stations Heard in 26 Months of ULR DXing.
Perhaps some of the other T615 Owners will chime in here...and tell you what they think of their T615's??!! The more opinions the Merrier...but I don't think you'd be disappointed...other than having to spend a few Extra Bucks Jack!!
The T615 has already been discussed a few times on the ULR Reflector Jack...if you check some of the back messages...you should see the messages about the T615.......
