Mini-FSL for CCrane Skywave

Les Rayburn

I’m the proud owner of a “Mini-FSL” antenna that is attached to a Tecsun PL-380 that works very well for portable DXing. But I prefer the ergonomic touches of the CCrane Skywave model especially in regards to tuning. My focus isn’t on TA or TP signals, but rather domestic DXing. 

Has anyone modified a CCrane Skywave to add an external FSL antenna? Wondering if it might benefit from the addition of the FSL and how difficult the modification might be.
