Real Degen 1103 or not?

Ola Fredriksson
 

Hi all !

A few days ago I bought a preowned Degen 1103 pll version. The owner couldn’t tell me if it was a “real” pll-version but I thought it was. On the frontside you see “pll dual conversion synthesized receiver” but is this proof enough? Jay told me to look after digititus on the AM-band. If you watch after Degen on Ali express or EBay you still see Degen 1103 pll but in the text they write DSP. I’m confused, have I a real one or not?

Yes it is home made.

Re: PL-368 Has this fault been sorted?

FenDrifter
 

This kiddie on SSB absolutely rocks! I have had more fun with this in 24 hours than I have with any of my previous receivers. That includes PL-330, PL-660 and my Etón E5 (which I still use because it’s just so damn friendly) and a few other old cheapies. This PL-368 is so stable and clear. I have so far mainly used it with headphones (not earbuds) so as not to upset she who must be obeyed, but the loudspeaker makes speech very clear and isn’t in my opinion tinny in any way. The only minor annoyance I’ve found is getting hold of the tip of the antenna to pull it out, not easy. I don’t quite understand why they’ve done it because previous models in this style have had the much more usable inverted cone type. This very minor issue aside I would say to anyone with an interest in shortwave to get out there and buy one immediately! They’re so cheap you just can’t go wrong.

Hi, I agree, it is pure junk. It worked well on shortwave but totally useless on mediumwave. BNC connections was bad. When turning the loop, lots of interference. Money in the garbagebox

I use the ETM function in a Tecsun PL-398MP.
It is a very sensitive and fast scan. Other Tecsun DSP portables also have this feature.

Gord, I’m not sure what you mean by a ‘bit of a jump here’?


Re: Recording from portable receiver

Hi Ola
You don’t actually say whether or not the report will be verbal or written? If verbal then joining both files together at a later date is fairly simple, or what I have come to do is add quick notes either directly on top of the recording, or kill the volume on the receiver and add them on at the end. This method obviously avoids any later editing. The options for using a line out socket, if you have one, will vary with equipment. My quick notes will essentially include frequency, time and receiver. Additionally if you only record a short example you could add such stuff as ‘Enrico, north Italy, talking to Ron etc’, you get the idea.

Thanks for that, sounds like it works well for you.

Hi Paul
I personally find the quality more than adequate. I record in WAV format via an called Voice Record Pro on my iPhone 8. Here is an example I recorded without any attempt at making a good recording:

  Might be a bit late to jump in here, but I use a Sony ICD-UX570. Excellent results with it's internal mics or through line in. It's speaker is barely useful of course since the whole thing is only about four inches long, one and a quarter wide and less than half an inch thick. But all of these small ones are in the same boat there. With headphones or an amplified speaker it is great. Plugs into USB to recharge the battery. Still goes for under $100 Canadian on Amazon.ca. There are less expensive versions that would do just as well too.

I want to record ID from stations and attach the audio files with a reception report

I should have added that personally I use my iPhone with a good recording app, and it’s simple then to transfer straight to Dropbox or whatever you want to do with it. The question is, what do you want to do with it?

I think any of the Olympus LS series would produce brilliant results, even the very small LS-P1 gives superb results. I have a few different models in addition to more professional gear, but it’s just not necessary.
