Sure, but it needs to be in the AM mode so we can use our Ultralight Shortwave Radios to listen, and to keep with the Ultralight theme, make it QRP transmitters as well, say nothing bigger than a 10 Watt Grenade Transmitter?

There is no limitation to the fidelity of AM radio. From a mathematical standpoint, AM does better in frequency response than FM. - Leonard Kahn

In looking through the 1300+ members on the list, there are a lot more - probably as many as 100 in North America, and at least 20 abroad.

Any updates on the TECSUN R-2010D ?

Rik
 

I have not seen any updates on the reviews mentioned here so far. Has anyone here seen or heard anything about TECSUN fixing the selectivity problem on the '2010D ? - FARMERIK

THANKS! Too bad. That makes it pretty much useless here in the USA. - FARMERIK

The ICF-R351 only tunes AM in 9 KHz increments.

Also, as it may not be apparent from the photo, the earphones are part of the radio, and fit into a recess at top of the back face.

That, for me would be a non-starter due to the "what if it breaks" and "what if I want to use a better phone" issues.

If you go to Japan regularly, maybe you can find out if the 'R351 can tune stations 10KHz apart. I don't know if it tunes in 1 KHz. steps or not. All I have found so far was specs that show the AM band on that radio is from 530-1710 KHz. which sounds like USA, but my SONY SCR-S71 tunes past 1700 for some sort of marine service in Japan above 1600 KHz.

Of course, this is the radio I take when I go to Japan to listen to stations there, InterFM at 76.1MHz (Tokyo)/76.5MHz (Yokohama)  for example. FM Radio stations in Japan are very low powered compared to the flamethrowers in my backyard so being able to receive them directly in the States would be a miracle of propagation.

I noticed this SONY which seems to have the same case as the legendary '615 SONY ULR model, but no "TV" band.

321160477893
Item number:

So I Googled and found some old posts here about it. It is selling [barely] under $100 now, and looks small enough to be a ULR. Not sure if it can tune in 10 KHz steps, and it tunes the Japan FM band I guess. That might be changeable, but I could not find a manual so far.

I do have a SONY AM FM plus 49m SW which can be changed from 9 to 10 KHz steps if you find the trick to do it, but it is not marked on the radio anywhere.

Does anyone here have one of these?
