Wow! That's a cool-looking radio!

However, the strict definitions set up by the Ultralight
Definitions Committee prohibit any radio with a built-in
MP3 player to be classified as an Ultralight.

Taken from the Definitions Document:

http://tinyurl.com/6mvrl3

"In keeping with the concept of limiting ourselves
to shirt pocket portables, the Committee has determined
that Novelty Radios (Coca Cola radio, Mr. M&M radio,
etc.) are inappropriate, as are various combinations
(tape players/recorders + radio, MP3 players + radio,
radio+flashlight, radio+Swiss Army Knife, etc.)"

Re: DT-400W Performance

Gary DeBock
 

Hello Joe and Ron,
 
     Thank you both for the excellent links and information on the new Sangean DT-400W model.
 
     After ordering three DT-400W review models for the Summertime Shootout and having all three units arrive from the factory in an excellent state of wide-band AM sensitivity, I can strongly recommend this innovative new receiver for any Ultralight DXer looking for a thrilling fall DX season.  It is highly unusual for the Chinese factories to consistently perform excellent AM alignments, but Sangean has apparently managed to accomplish this.  As long as you can tolerate the yellow color, you'll love it  :>)
 
     As explained in the Shootout, the E100 would still be the preferable choice for modifications and/or 9 kHz split frequency DXers, but with two outstanding Ultralight models to choose from, this upcoming fall DX season should be a real thriller for everybody!

Hello Guys,
 
     The new Sangean DT-400W was the big surprise of the 5 models tested in the Summertime Shootout, and does indeed have wide-band sensitivity superior to all other Ultralight models (including the SRF-T615 and the E100).  In order to confirm that this was not a fluke, three DT-400W models were ordered, and all three had the same great AM performance.  Accordingly, Ultralight enthusiasts can have confidence in ordering this model, for highly sensitive Ultralight DXing this fall season.
 
     Full details on the DT-400W evaluation, including its relative performance against the E100 and SRF-T615 models (as well as all other top Ultralight models) will be contained in the Summertime Shootout review, which is in the final stages of completion and should be available very shortly to all enthusiasts.

Re: Eton E100 tuning via knob

Gary Kinsman
 

Hi Gary,

Thanks for replying to my question. My E100 is S/N E10-0704030006,
purchased from Durham Radio back in May.

It does appear that the white tuning shaft to which the tuning knob
attaches does "wobble" a tiny bit when rotated. This may be the
problem, but I'm not sure how to correct it. I'll have to attempt
further disassembly at some point.

(This is just my luck with Eton products I guess. I had two high
serial number E1XM units with bad sync detector noise in USB/LSB
sync, and Eton declined to repair them, saying this was "normal,"
even though it didn't occur on two lower serial number units that I
tested.)

Regards,
Gary

Hi Gary,

Thanks for your question. I have four E100's (admittedly
quite a fanatic) but have never run across this problem. It
sounds like friction due to a misaligned tuning shaft. Have you
tried further disassembly of the radio, after taking off the
tuning knob? There is a very detailed file on dxer.ca
regarding E100 disassembly.
We would also be interested in the serial # of your E100, if
you could give it. To my knowledge, this problem has never been
reported in any of the "old" E100's (serial numbers before E10-
0709xxxxxx).

Eton E100 tuning via knob

Gary Kinsman
 

Hello all,

The tuning action on my E100 is smooth and precise over much of its
rotation, but it is stiff and mushy over part of its rotation. Is this
typical? Can it be fixed?

It's not the knob rubbing, because it happens with the knob removed,
and turning the encoder shaft with a thin screwdriver. I don't believe
my E10 has this problem.

I'm particularly interested in hearing from those of you with multiple
E100 units.

Thanks,
Gary


Re: Eton E100 tuning via knob

Gary DeBock
 

Gary,
 
     Eton has never been inclined to provide service manuals or other assistance to technicians seeking to repair or modify their own units.  All of what we know about the E100's internal circuitry was discovered by investigation and trial and error, including the alignment procedure, IF filter replacement procedure, etc.
 
     In general, the "old" E100's have a pretty good quality control record, but I have seen a defective stock loopstick, and a couple of new units with whip antenna wires broken off.  Eventually the E100 owners will have a detailed record of potential problems, and how to solve them.  If you can solve your tuning shaft problem by disassembly or lubrication, please let us know about your procedure.  Otherwise, an owner with an inoperative E100 might have a part you need, or you could track down a parts unit on eBay, usually very cheaply.

Robert Ross 30 day Challenge and logs

Hi Everyone,
 
Thought I would start my attempt at the Robert Ross Challenge of logging 300 stations in 30 days last evening . Thus far I  don't have a great number added to the list,  as I thought I would leave the commonly heards  for later on.
 
Last evening I concentrated more on logging some of the stations I've heard before but stations that don't come in that often, only now and then,  in case I don't have another shot at them  again within the 30 days.
 
I did manage to log 2 new domestics , one which I will be submitting for  a possible new graveyard frequency  distance record which will  outdistance my previous record by 500 miles or so.
 
So I'm up for the challenge and looking forward to it.

Summertime Shootout File Uploaded to DXer.ca

Gary DeBock
 

Hello Guys,
 
     The new Ultralight Radio AM-DX Summertime Shootout file has been uploaded to dxer.ca, including full information and photos on the SRF-S84, SRF-M97, E100, SRF-M37W, and DT-400W models.  Extremely detailed information is provided for sensitivity, selectivity, nulling ability, images/spurs, AGC, audio quality, digital tuning noise, and quality control record.  In addition, a bonus section is provided comparing all these models with all the other top-rated Ultralight radio models (SRF-59, SRF-39FP, SRF-T615, DT-210V and DT-200VX units).
 
     If you have any question at all about the top Ultralight radio models, the answer is probably available in this Shootout.  Get ready for a SUPER fall DX season!

Re: DT-400W Performance

Gary DeBock
 

Hello Paul,
 
     The DT-400W has an outstanding FM section, with sensitivity and selectivity equal to the best Ultralight models (E100 and the AM-turkey model DT-220V, which is outstanding on FM).
 
     The DT-200VX RF board has been completely redesigned in this new DT-400W, making the AM sensitivity significantly more wide-band than that of the DT-200VX.  It is also more wide-band than any other Ultralight model, including the previous best unit, the $100+ SRF-T615.  So yes, I do think it is worthwhile for a DT-200VX owner to purchase a DT-400W.  I am a DT-200VX owner, and I purchased three DT-400W models....to ensure that the great performance was no fluke, before rating it tops in the Shootout. It's no fluke!

Steve and others........I too am the proud owner of the SANGEAN DT-400W ULR
Receiver!! I have only had mine for a few days, and really have only
listened to it in a very casual manner since then. Partly due to watching
the Olympics whenever I could...which was a lot, since I am off work on
Sickleave!! Also the FM band has been very good with TROPO Conditions...and
in the summer I spend a ton of time FM/TV DX'ing.

However the little time I have spent using the DT-400W has left me very
impressed with this little set. It is VERY SENSITIVE...and although not as
Selective as the SRF-39 or SRF-59.....it is Much better than the
SRF-T615....and maybe almost as good as the E-100. The conditions here are
just starting to pick up a bit and it won't be long until we start hearing
some decent stuff on the AM BCB again. I know this set is gonna be a winner
once things get going again. It appears to be able to hear stations and the
Audio is quite nice too. I can hardly wait for the Fall......I think this
radio will be seeing a lot of airtime!!

I am very happy to add this little Gem to my ULR Stable of Receivers!!

Re: Delayed Report :Grayland Day Four

Dennis...

I believe the signature listed the receivers and antenna... but maybe I forgot.  I was using a E100 with a new Murata 2.6 kHz IF filter, directly connected to a Wellbrook Phased Array antenna system.... The Wellbrook is roughly equivalent to a couple of 750' to 900' Beverages, but with a better front-to-back ratio than I've ever achieved with Beverages...  The secrets of my success were the antenna, the IF filter and, most of all, being right on the open Pacific.

Well, I'm up to 83 TP Ultralight loggings.... in 16 countries. I did
some planning for the assault on 100 TPs... it might just be possible
this season, but its going to take both work and luck. I'm sure going
to try. Getting to twenty countries, TP may just not be possible...
certainly not this season. After 20 years with the big radios, I'm
only in the low 20s out here and several of those QSLed countries
(Tuvalu, Vanuatu and Solomons, New Caledonia) are either off the MW
air entirely or are unheard here in a number of years. I expect to
get Viet Nam 675 when the fall season is in full cry, but from
there.... Kiribati and Micronesia are possibilities at some point,
but that leaves me at 19..... hummmmmm. Maybe China will break into
at least three pieces as has been predicted at times. Hummmmm.

Well, thanks to Ultralighting (and 4HI + KTWG) this was my most
enjoyable DXpedition in many years... what a blast.

I'll combine all my Ultralight loggings and get together a DXpedition
report in the next few days.

Thanks for discovering this stuff, Gary!!!
