Back during the 3" FSL Tecsun PL-380 experimentation in 2016 I did transplant the same 3" FSL antenna into a couple of C.Crane Skywave models, but the higher RF levels "smoked" the Skywaves' Si4735 DSP chips. The Tecsun PL-380 uses a different (Si4734) DSP chip, which is why it can handle the higher RF levels from the hard-wired FSL antenna (in place of the stock loopstick).
Although I have a pretty generous experimental budget, destroying the pricey CC Skywaves was definitely not part of the master plan, and they have since been excused from the hard-wired FSL mission.
