Tao, are you able to make detail PCB photo with Silabs chip?
Previous were not so good quality http://www.5bcl.com/Article/UploadFiles/201110/20111002143452894.jpg

I have only one question - which revision of Si4734 used?
All previous DSP radios from Tecsun used old B20 :(
Silabs doesn't recommend it for new designs
I want to see D60 with better specs

Hi,
I cannot see any substantial difference between PL-606 and PL-505...
Can you tell me the reason why to turn out nearly the same radio as PL-606?

Great news on the Bandwidth selection, Tao Qu. Do you know if the audio
"soft mute" is the 10-15 dB reduction as with most of the Tecsun radios, or
just the 3-5 dB as with the PL-380 and PL-390?

Thanks - Kevin S

Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 10-8

Gary DeBock
 

Hello All,

Yesterday's vibrant Asian signals didn't show up again on MW this
morning, although the Japanese big guns and a few others had decent
strength. 594-JOAK and 747-JOIB were doing well around 1400, and
603-HLSA was just as strong as yesterday with Korean speech around
1402. One bright spot this morning was fairly good audio from 936-Anhui
(China), with female-voiced news in Chinese around 1407
http://www.mediafire.com/?jjh3lh2y7xmqocy . Most of the other Asian
signals were fairly mediocre this morning, though. Longwave Radio
Rossii stations on 153 and 189 kHz were at fair-good levels just after
1300, along with 164-Mongolia at threshold audio level (for three days
in a row, // 4895 kHz).

73 and Good DX,
Gary DeBock

It also looks like it's smaller than the PL-606.

from the description: Unit Size: 123 (W) x 79 (H) x 20 (D) mm

the 606 is a hair larger: 127 (W) x 82 (H) x 28 (D) mm

I think we have a new ultralight

New Station overnite

ferrite61 <dxrx@...>
 

Quite a while trying for this one. WBNW 1120 is usually heard under KMOX and the occasional KPNW. This morning I finally caught a decent ID as "New Englands favorite business radio station WBNW" at 0220 EDT using the PL-210. WBNW is located in Concord, MA at 140 km running 1000 Watts at night. No sign of WPRX, and mixing with KMOX, still taking calls for the Cardinal's victory last nite. This is station #509.

Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 10-7

Gary DeBock
 

Hello All,

Like Dennis, I thought that this morning's TP signals were close to
their seasonal high, although the results here were more slanted toward
Chinese stations, and the Asian mainland (which is typical for this
location). CNR1-639 (synchros) and 738-BEL2 (Taiwan Fisheries) both had
their best signals of the season, and 936-Anhui had good audio at
times. A big surprise was 657-Pyongyang with a clean, sine-wave carrier
(although the programming was still obnoxious). 738-Taiwan's signal was
strong this morning, but with undermodulated audio, and a throbbing
hum. Longwave TP's were modest, with the stronger Radio Rossii outlets
at fair levels and 164-Mongolia producing threshold audio.

164-Mongolia Very weak female-voiced news after 1300, // 4895 kHz
189-R. Rossii Fair with Russian speech at 1304
234-R.Rossii Poor-fair with Russian at 1307
279-R.Rossii Fair with music at 1255
558-HLQH Daegu, S. Korea Fair w/ music at 1333, apparently // with 603
594-JOAK Tokyo, Japan Very strong with Japanese weather report at
1358 http://www.mediafire.com/?zy2s930pynp3ebx
603-HLSA Namyang, S. Korea Fair at times with music around 1345
639-CNR1 China (synchros) Best signals of season with male-female
voice news 1400
http://www.mediafire.com/?dv0kv88dvsc9zze
657-Pyongyang Clean signal but typical male/female tirades around 1343
http://www.mediafire.com/?j3cupncy7k4p4ju
738-BEL2 Penghu, Taiwan Strong, undermodulated signal with throbbing
hum all morning
http://www.mediafire.com/?xyhx16mgq7s9brr
747-JOIB Sapporo, Japan Very strong with Japanese music at 1354
774-JOUB Akita, Japan Fair through KTTH splatter around 1336
828-JOBB Osaka, Japan Good with Japanese music program 1350
936- Anhui, China Good at times with Chinese conversation around 1345
http://www.mediafire.com/?4rm6gvolr31b1a0
972-HLCA Dangjin, S. Korea Good with Korean conversation at 1351
1044-CRI Fair-good foreign language program at 1331
1053-Korean Jammer Strong with buzzing signal 1329
1134-KBS Hwaseong, S. Korea Good Korean conversation at 1407
1566-HLAZ Jeju, S. Korea Very good w/ Japanese religious pgm 1325
1575-VOA Ban Rassom, Thailand Poor-fair in Asiatic language 1327
