Re: Belka DX


Hello Jorge,

I ordered the radio direct from the designer (  Alex is very responsive to emails and provides excellent customer service.   Shipment was delayed a short time due to component shortages , but I was kept informed and up to date on the status.  Shipping took only about 10 days , and I know that the US postal "service" was responsible for a part of that.  Ordering direct from Alex saved me a considerable amount of money.

I am still learning the radio, but I'm still very pleased.  Size wise, it's smaller than a deck of cards, but larger than a matchbox.   The screen contains all the information needed, without vacuuming up batteries with a lot of excess bling that is just "eye candy" rather than anything particularly necessary . 

Here's a link to a bunch of reviews. If you're looking for an ultra-small radio for all-mode shortwave listening, this is a great choice

John, where did you order the radio? I have been informed of some doubtful web sites. 
Nigel, any chance to get that Radio User review as a .pdf file?

The UI is really very good IMO given the small number of controls for all the functions.
