Hi Steve,

Great job on the Ultralight Longwave DX-- even with the low-scoring
FSL's :-)

When you were listening I was testing out the new 8" (1700 point) LW
DXpedition FSL this morning, and also came away with the 153 and 279
Rossii's, plus a couple of fair Alaskan beacons (other than 530-ADK,
which is hopeless here because of a three TIS station maze).

Some decent morning Pacific conditions this morning, first noted on the
"big radio and outside antennas", so went upstairs and listened on the
ULR and FSL. LWBC Far East Russia Radio Rossii heard on both 153 and
279. 153 is new for the ULR and FSL. 530 Alaska beacon on Adak
unusually
strong too, and added that for a new NDB. Also heard on even the lowest
point (620) LF FSL.

Our First Year at Bristol's Hope, Newfoundland

Allen Willie
 

Hello To All,


It has been exactly one year ago today Monday April 2 since we moved to our new residence here in Bristol's Hope. Thought we would share with you our current totals of what both Dianne and I have heard during the past year using the Ultralight Radios here in "The Hope".

It has been a major bonus in moving here radio reception wise compared to the city with the added bonus of escaping all that city interference, static and noise. Dianne is looking forward in the coming year in enjoying more time at the dials than previously. We are anxiously awaiting warmer weather so we can DX at Bristol Cove Lookout high above the Atlantic during the days and months ahead as well.



April 2, 2011 to April 1, 2012

Jay this rings very true. I have recently looked at the specs of the newer SI chips, and they are showing a very stubby ferrite rod as being acceptable. Its about consumers: not enthusiasts.

Hi there:

The Chinese Degen DE1128 only support LCD language in Chinese (both traditional & simplified version) & Russia and MW is fixed on 9 KHz...

The radio is a multi-purpose device incorporating receiver, MP3 player, digital recorder and music box functions.

Accordingly to Chinese website, it is supposed to be a milestone product after DE1103. The interface is similar to DE1126 with an additional speaker and numeric keypad to allow direct frequency entry...

The receiver is optimised for FM stereo listening with RDS support. FM coverage from 64-108 MHz, MW from 522-1710 KHz. SW from 2.3 to 23 MHz. A microSD card slot is available for additional storage.

FM & SWBCL for major broadcasters are sufficient on this small radio with whip antenna only, though MW is barely adequate. Volume control from 0 to 31 level but no treble & bass functions unlike other DSP come with variable bandwith control.

The dual speaker system giving crisp and clear sound suitable for both indoor & outdoor hearing. Connectivity to computer for downloading of files and for lithium battery charging is a fast & easy.

This latest offering from Degen 112X smart-radio series is definitely a step ahead of other like the Tecsun PL398MP & Anjan DTS-13... especially with the computer-based control interface which allow user to change the setting at a touch of the button.

All-in-all, this mobile device that may define the future of radio listening...

Re: Degen DE1128 Info

Hi Gary:

Thank for your reply.

The radio is specified as a FM Stereo-MW-SW DSP receiver.

Orders may be made at website http://tecsunradio.com based in Kwangchow (Canton) China. Contact person is Erin via hch@....

The complete package incl. international shipping is below US$95.00 and arrived in 2 weeks from date of order.

I must agreed with Jay it's a feature-rich radio with MP3 player and recording function built-in.

According to Degen, this product is milestone in 112X series but not to replace the DE1103 which they claimed to have sold over 300,000 units worldwide.

They also cited difficulties in getting components that may run out later for DE1103 and the software interface for design modern receiver like DE1128.

The limitation of MW could be due to the size of the radio to house the ferrite antenna as in DE1126. SW tuning is also limited at 5KHz internal covering from 13m to 120m unlike Tecsun PL210 with full band coverage from 522-29999KHz

As mentioned earlier, the outstanding feature of this handy product is it's connectivity with computer eanble MP3 songs and new podcasts to be downloaded directly and ready on the go...

The receiver is still its primary function but with many more features now!

Dear Mkang,

Thank you very much for posting the detailed information about the new
DE1128 receiver. It sounds very interesting.

Although the LCD language is not in English and the MW band tuning
steps are fixed at 9 kHz, if the new radio has FM sensitivity and
selectivity similar to (or superior to) the Tecsun Si4734 DSP chip
radios (PL-300WT, PL-310, PL-380 and PL-606), I would be very
interested in ordering a sample DE1128 to test out (if you can suggest
an ordering source in China or Hong Kong). Our Ultralight radio
enthusiast group has many FM-DXers, and they would probably be
interested in its performance compared to the Tecsun DSP models. A
translation sheet for the Chinese characters (to English) can be
probably be made up here, if the radio's FM-DXing performance is
excellent.

New radio + New Station

Dave Hascall
 

I received a new Tecsun PL606 on Wednesday.  I purchased it from ebay seller kaito-electronics-inc for $49 shipped, via a traditional auction.  Yup, I saved 99 cents over Buy It Now, :)  The seller ships from California and not China.  Paid last Friday, he shipped Monday and I received it Wednesday.  FAST!

Man this radio is sensitive!Man do I miss direct tuning!  Lol.  Yup, it has some quirks but the radio has good sensitivity.

In the ten minutes I listened, I managed to add a new one to the ULR book - WJLS 560 WV.  Not too bad a start.  Nothing on LW but that was expected, being barefoot.

I will work at learning its operation, such as trying to keep it in fast tuning mode, keeping the light on and so on.

Hello To All

Decent propagation during the past few evenings with these logs. All logs are from the homefront.

We are hoping to have some more logs soon from our newly found Dxing location high above the Atlantic Ocean at Bristol Cove Lookout # 1. A blizzard warning is in effect so those could be delayed for a while yet from that location.

Re: Degen DE1128 Info

Hi there:

The Chinese Degen DE1128 only support LCD language in Chinese (both traditional & simplified version) & Russia and MW is fixed on 9 KHz...

The radio is a multi-purpose device incorporating receiver, MP3 player, digital recorder and music box functions.

Accordingly to Chinese website, it is supposed to be a milestone product after DE1103. The interface is similar to DE1126 with an additional speaker and numeric keypad to allow direct frequency entry...

The receiver is optimised for FM stereo listening with RDS support. FM coverage from 64-108 MHz, MW from 522-1710 KHz. SW from 2.3 to 23 MHz. A microSD card slot is available for additional storage.

FM & SWBCL for major broadcasters are sufficient on this small radio with whip antenna only, though MW is barely adequate. Volume control from 0 to 31 level but no treble & bass functions unlike other DSP come with variable bandwith control.

The dual speaker system giving crisp and clear sound suitable for both indoor & outdoor hearing. Connectivity to computer for downloading of files and for lithium battery charging is a fast & easy.

This latest offering from Degen 112X smart-radio series is definitely a step ahead of other like the Tecsun PL398MP & Anjan DTS-13... especially with the computer-based control interface which allow user to change the setting at a touch of the button.

All-in-all, this mobile device that may define the future of radio listening...

I had a nice email from Tao Qu (tquchina on Ebay) about availability of
Degen DE1128 on ebay. Here is his reply:

"The Chinese Degen DE1128 will not be suitable in USA because the MW band is
fixed on 9 kHz (no 10 kHz support), and the panel labels and the LCD display
