Hello To All,

Another strong opening from the south last night as a multitude of Brazilian stations were audible here in the "Hope". This particular opening lasted approximately an hour or so and yielded 3 more additions to the Ultralight radio log. Many others were relogs .

Is ShouYu SY-X5 is a Japanese Radio? Coz Shouyu is a Japanese word which means Prize/ Girf/ Bonus!

Will do a deep check later today, and advise if any success.

BTW, the brand name is Tecsun, not Tecsum. Those conducting their own searches that search on Tecsum will not likely find much.

Re: Tescum Pl-210 Alignment Instructions or Schematic Needed

Well, you COULD use both, but for most modern receivers, you -- and the receiver too -- are usually better off using a frequency counter to set items like the PLL base frequency oscillator trimmer, LO mixer insertion frequency, et al.

VERY rare are the current vintage receivers that you can "set by WWV or CHU" and things would likely work, etc.

Somebody can tell the difference between R2001D and this Shouyu:

http://swling.com/blog/2013/06/new-product-the-shouyu-sy-x5-shortwave-radio/

can you eg tune 9579 Radio Morocco on the DSP? (5khz step or a fast switching chip to other stations ?)

It's too bad Tecsun left out the switchable IF filters. Many of their small DSP models can select from 5 bandwidths, which is a very useful feature.

Yeah, I'm coming to the conclusion that the digital tuning/analog dial radios are (so far) designed more for the casual listener than the hard-core radio enthusiast.

The swling.com review answers my query re tuning increments.

So it does, indeed, appear that this receiver is not a good choice. Possibly because it is designed
primarily
for domestic listeners who would only wish to receive powerful stations, particuarly national
ones...

It is not clear from your review whether you can actually tune in between 10 kHz (MW) or 5 kHz (SW)
stations/broadcasts.
When you tune to say 5975, will the next station tuned be 5980, or can you fine tune to say 5977,
even though the digital display may still show 5975?

Thomas says:

Tuning increments are only in 5 kHz steps on SW. This was a limitation with the other
mechanically-tuned SiLabs DSP chip.
Fortunately, you can chage between 9kHz/10kHz on MW and there are FM bands for Japan, Russia and the
rest of the world.

Thanks for the update. We all, of course, now look forward to a detailed performance report!

It sounds as if tuning is either

a) 5kHz steps in the digital display, but with 1kHz fine-tuning between these display steps.
or
b) 5kHz "jumps" in tuning, matching 5kHz digital readout increments and no 1kHz tuning option;
the analog scales serving only as an approximating orientation aid.
