"Stealth-Modified" PL-380 Photo Album


Gary DeBock
 

Hello All,
 
Describing the recent experimentation in which two Tecsun PL-380 models received a significant boost in MW sensitivity (and a major boost in LW performance) simply by substituting high-quality 40/44 Litz wire for the bargain-bin Chinese wire on the stock ferrite bar,  five photos have been uploaded to the Ultralightdx Photo section in a new album, "Stealth-Modified" PL-380.
 
 
This significant improvement in DXing performance on both the MW and LW bands costs only $5 in Litz wire, and has already been tested in two models created here, and in one made by Steve Ratzlaff. Once the full article is drafted, it is hoped that other DXers will take advantage of this ultra-cheap DXing modification.
 
73 and Good DX,
Gary DeBock (in Puyallup, WA, USA)
