XYL missed the letter carrier yesterday, but I picked up my Tecsun
PL-606 at the USPS today! Whoo hoo!

Unfortunately, with RTTY Roundup this weekend, I won't have much time
to start logging DX ... well, not MW DX, anyway.

Nice - 2 NiMH bats, USB cable (unfortunately with a Mini-B and mot a
Micro-B like my Blackberry), extended whip antenna, long wire antenna,
nice carry bag. Way cool!

Much smaller than I expected!

Philip Rafuse reviewed that set favorably on the audio cubes site. I talked to him recently...he said that it is a nice set, sensitive and selective, but not in the same league as the Sangean PR-D5. I didn't ask about the audio, but I would imagine that through the speakers, the SONY might be better...The more I try out sets like the Crane Radio, +, 2, EP, the more impressed I am with the good behavior overall of the PR-D5 in an urban setting, and freedom from spurious noise.

Re: Batteries and Corrosion

Brian,

Play safe! If not in weekly use, take out the batteries !!!
Reinsert them when needed. Some will leak sooner, others later.
The very minor inconvenience is negligeable compared to damage
caused by leaking batteries.

Not necessarily on the ULR topic, but I wondered if someone here might be able to give me definitive information on the
following:

I have acquired several radios since I first got into the DX hobby last February.

Most all of them, including superadios, RF-2200, ICF-2010 and others have batteries in them. I don't use them all on a daily
or even weekly basis, but the batteries are still in them.

How long would it be before I should take the batteries out to avoid that nasty orange stuff to appear in the battery
compartments?

Re: Is it possable to use a 450/455 KC BFO with the new "DSP" radios? i.f. ?

seta <michael.setaazul@...>
 

Stephan,
Ja, es ist bereichernd einen deutschen Meister mit an Bord zu haben!

I imagine the best option for DSB or SSB would be to insert a very stable
oscillator signal as a surrogate carrier at the received signal frequency.
A narrow filter uldx receiver would probably digest this reasonably well.
A stable, variable VLF oscillator searching out the presumed very-low IF
might work. However, the question arises : why bother? If I wanted SSB,
I would go heretic and use a non-uldx receiver, such as the Eton E5 etc.

Help! What are this stake and the brushwood for ???

Re: SONY Model

That's interesting that it took so long to ship. It seems that the T615 is getting less and less common, so perhaps they needed to get some more? The T615 used to be fairly common on Taobao in China, but the last time I checked there was only 1 for sale.

Re: Differences between ULRs and SDRs

seta <michael.setaazul@...>
 

A very helpful overview of the difference between software and
hardware versions, Rick.

I, for one, would be most interested in your report on the Elektor
in due course. Maybe true SDR could become a new thread
because of its relevance in comparison with uldx receiver technology.

Subject: [ultralightdx] Differences between ULRs and SDRs


The Si473X based ULR radios are not software designed radios, they are
hardware based. The Si473X family use an external enbedded code
microprocessor to send the commands to the Si chip to control frequency,
bandwidth, etc. This is the same as any digital radio be it a CCrane
SWP or an Eton E10. There is software, or firmware, in the
microprocessor that gives the Si4734 its commands, but this is not
"software designed radio".

A true SDR, see the Elektor SDR receiver or RFSpace receivers, have no
RF components other than front end bandpass filters. All the functions
of the Si4734 hardware are done in software with an SDR design. An SDR
relies on the sound card of a computer along with special software to
perform all the functions the Si4734 receivers perform with hardware.
The DSP functions of the ULRs are performed with hardware designed into
the IC while the DSP of an SDR is performed by the control software.

SDR receivers use what is called an I/Q mixer and output 2 signals, the
I and Q outputs, to the sound card. The Si4734 based chips and no I/Q
output. ULRs are "stand alone" receivers, SDRs are not. SDRs must
have a sound card to operate and SDRs have no problem with AM, FM, CW,
SSB, and multiple bandwidths since all of this is done with software.
This is why the ULRs would have a problem with adding a BFO while SDRs
have no problem with multiple modes.

For $1.80, you can download the Elektor article on the Elektor SDR
radio. This is a very informative article on the basics of SDR radio.
For about $160 including shipping to the US, you can buy an assemble and
tested Elektor SDR and a nice selection of free SDR software to
explore. My Elektor SDR is on the way and if anyone is interested, I'll
post a report to the ULR list even though it is off topic.

Good DXing,

The T615 is still in there (hey - why mess with a good thing?). Remarkably, the SRF-59 and M37W, both available widely here, are not even mentioned.

The little T46 and R46 look interesting - I wonder if they are the SRF-59 with a speaker??? They are not available in the USA as far as I can tell, but there are lots of Japanese sellers with them. On Taobao, the Chinese version of eBay, they would probably run 60 bucks after all is said and done, a bit steep IMHO.

Looks like it is the Sony SRF-M606 or SRF-M806. I recall doing some research into these models, which are essentially the same as the vaunted T615 except it was difficult to tell if either version tuned in 9 and 10 khz steps and/or covered the 1600-1700 portion of the band (there are American and European version, I believe). They are about the same price as the T615, so probably stick with a known quantity:-)

I tried to figure it out for the M806 a couple years ago, and I had a way to do it through the German Amazon site. However, between the dollar/Euro exchange rate and the shipping cost, it would have been way too expensive. With that, combined with the possibility of it it not tuning a 9/10 khz splits and/or not tuning past 1600 khz, I quickly lost interest :-)

Any one else tried???
