Re: Tescun PL-360 Photo Album
Thanks for your interest in the new Tecsun PL-360.
The model does indeed have a detachable belt clip, as shown in the photo below. There are two clip-on slots (located on each cabinet side), designed to hold the belt clip securely in place. But as Marc has already mentioned, there is no AM bandwidth control on the PL-360-- the DSP filtering is fixed at 3 kHz, such as on the Tecsun PL-300WT/ Grundig G8 models.
There hasn't really been time here yet to play around with any PL-360 loopstick replacements, but I do agree with Marc that inductively coupling the huge PVC loops to the tiny plug-in loopstick would probably give better DXing results than attempting to plug in huge substitute loopsticks, or directly plugging in the air core loops. The DSP radios do have excellent resistance to overloading, however, and are fairly crunch-resistant even with the 9' sided loop (which badly overloads almost every other type of ULR).
