Re: Grundig 300 PE
I agree with Jay. The 300 PE (re-branded Tecsun 919) is their bottom-of-the-line digital set, with a small ferrite that runs across the top that does not bode well for AM sensitivity. Even the next model up in their digital line-up, the G1100 (Tecsun DR-920) is still lagging in performance. Having tried the G1100 recently, the analog/digital tuning system that both models (300 PE and G1100) share doesn't seem to work well on MW.toggle quoted message Show quoted text
In looking at the first page of eHam reviews, it seems that the positive reviews for the 300 PE were mainly for FM and/or SW performance, not AM. Also, advanced information from Gary DeBock, who is evaluating the 300 PE as part of the upcoming Shoot-Out, indicates that this is not a model worth rushing out and getting.
If you're in the market for a digital set, the Eton e100 and Sangean DT-400W are capable performers; the e100 is the most selective ULR, while the DT-400W is the most sensitive. However, if you are an urban DXer, the unparalleled nulling performance of the Kaito WRX-911 that Jay mentioned might be the way to go, at a rock-bottom price.
