- Looking for analog receiver suggestions (not necessarily modern nor ultralight)
Re: Looking for analog receiver suggestions (not necessarily modern nor ultralight)
I have just bought the Tecsun DR- 920C
And I was surprised what you get for 24 dollar, a good small
radio with excellent selective reception on the shortwave bands.
I use a long wire of 8 meters outside connected with a clip on the antenna
FM is also OK.

Onderwerp: [UltralightDX] Looking for analog receiver suggestions (not
necessarily modern nor ultralight)
Too long, wont read version 😊 I'm looking for suggestions of ultralight
or mid-sized analog portable receivers that you recall having very good
performance in both AM and FM. Feel free to recommend models from 60-70-80s as
I really like to listen to AM and FM weak stations. My main receivers include
an ultralight (C.Crane Skywave), a booksized one (XHData-808) and a car stereo
(GM media center, lots of exciting findings commuting to/from work)
However, I'm a bit either nostalgic or bored with the digital VFO steps and DSP
behaviour. At home, most of the time I end up using an analog Sony ICF-38. It's
is a joy to the ears listening stations slowing and softly coming in and out of
of the IF passband. ICF-38 sensitivity is very good, however its filter
__wiiiiiiiide__ in AM and FM. Local stations easily obliterate 2 channels below
and 2 channels above the nominal frequency.
Stephen Grossklass ( http://stephan.win31.de/rx-eval.htm ) mentioned the
Panasonic RF-B11 as a good analog receiver. It uses ceramic filters in both AM
and FM sections Its competitor - Sony ICF-SW11 - does a good job on LW, MW and
SW (tuned frontend+ceramic filter), but FM is subpar (Stephen explains Sony
decided standard LC filtering in FM in SW11).
Have a great one!
