Re: Shouyu SY-X5 AM FM SW Radio

elimixpro83 <elimixpro83@...>
 

Made in china (I have this radio (the silver one))

HARD to tune a station in the MW & SW. (tiny tuning space).
FM is TOO HARD to tune,
having to play a lot with the tuning weel (up down, up down...........
The Degen de321 is easier to use
but the tuning weel is easy to turn vs the de321.

Steps are 5k --> SW
when tuning, sound mute (cut) between frequencies.
MW are selectabe:
9k/MW 2 (520-1620 khz)
10k/MW 1 (520-1710 khz)

FM1 87-108
FM2 64-87

But MW is more sensitive comparing to the de321
(bigger feritte ???)
SW seems to be a bit better vs the de321.

Sounds is MONO not stereo.
MP3 is also MONO with a HUMM noise.

Kind of heavy.
Thicker than a tecsun r912 or kaito wrx911 but
about the same size.

The sound via the Speaker is a kind nice.

But i don't recomend it for FM use (HARD to tune).

Maybe "beautiful song" in Chinese and "soy sauce" in Japanese.
I'm opting that it is Chinese. I see the price on Ebay is only $15+ postage from Hong Kong,

Richard, I'd think that Brazil on 1100 would be a better bet for you? What ever you can get from WTAM should be gone in an AU and also nulled when you aim at Brazil. I don't think KRDY is that strong at your QTH is it? Cuba on 1100 can be a nuisance in AU cx, but I think they have enough issues in Cuba that this isn't always on. I don't think you'd have dominant Mexicans on 1100 although expect them to QRM.

Allen:

The auroral conditions were subsiding by the time it was dark here last evening. I tried to listen but the northern stations, including 990 CBW, were returning. I noticed some of the TV/FM DXers were experiencing aurora scatter DX.

Other than 1220 Radio Globo, I don't know what Brazilian stations to listen for. Here, that frequency is dominated by 100 kW XEB in México. Surely I will hear South America on an ULR at some point. Too bad they're not on the splits like when I heard them in the early 1970's.

Best wishes for a happy Canada Day weekend and more good DX.

Re: Tescum Pl-210 Aligment Instructions Needed

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:

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.
