It does look to be a typo on the reported dimensions.. Degen shows 125x76x28 mm not *176*. That would be be the size of a DR-920/DE-212/R-911/WRX911. Plenty of room and lack of shielding for internal birdies :P

I think the Kaito site should say 125mm x 76mm x 30mm, which would be
4.92" x 2.95" x 1.18" or close enough. Might have to try it out.

Hi Ginger:

Interesting, no-frills radio: there doesn't seem to be much out there
on this model, though, regarding performance. Alas, in looking at the Kaito
web site, it measures a "massive" 40 cubic inches (it's around 5x7 inches),
so a little over twice the max allowed for an Ultralight.

Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 9-6

Gary DeBock
 

Hello All,

Like Dennis, I was chasing audio from Mongolia on Longwave this
morning, and had threshold audio on both 164 and 209 kHz using a new
Longwave FSL antenna. Unfortunately both signals were too weak to check
against each other, or the SW parallel on 4830 kHz. 189-Radio Rossii in
Belogorsk was the strongest of the 5 Rossii TP's this morning, a very
rare situation. Medium wave TP-DX signals were fairly average,
except for an extremely potent signal from 1566-HLAZ at 1322 which maxed
out the PL-380's S/N display at 25. This was the strongest signal from
HLAZ ever received here (over a 5 year period).

153 Radio Rossii Komsomolsk, Russia Fair with blues music at 1333
164 UnID Threshold audio in and out at 1340, too weak to
check 4830 kHz //
180 Radio Rossii Yelizovo, Russia Fair with blues music at 1335
189 Radio Rossii Belogorsk, Russia Very good with blues music 1334
http://www.mediafire.com/?s8dbuevca9wayih
209 UnID Threshold audio under Alaskan NDB CYT-209;
presumably unlogged Mongolian station
234 Radio Rossii Arman, Russia Good with blues music at 1340
279 Radio Rossii Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Russia Good with blues music at
1344
594 JOAK Tokyo, Japan Fair-good with news from Japanese YL
announcer at 1333

738 BEL2 Penghu, Taiwan Threshold Chinese music at 1312
747 JOIB Sapporo, Japan Good signal in and out of

972 HLCA Dangjin, S. Korea Poor-fair Korean speech in
splatter
1053 Korean Jammer Buzzing the domestic splatter nicely at 1310
1134 KBS Hwaseong, S. Korea (presumed) Weak Korean talk
through domestic splatter at 1329
1566 HLAZ Jeju, S. Korea Monster signal with Japanese
Christian song at 1321; pegged the
PL-380's S/N display at 25 (strongest
signal ever here)

Re: Rechargeable Batteries for Tecsun Radios

Ray
 

Hi Stephen,

With the PL-390, is it showing Ni-Mh below the battery power level indicator, if not then it needs to be switched so it displays as this setting tells the radio it is using rechargable batterys.

Pressing the "M" button toggles between single use batterys and Ni-Mh (rechargeable) batterys

I have two Tecsun radios that allow you to recharge their batteries while still inside the radio ... a PL-310 and a PL-390. Of the two, only the 310 came with batteries. They are Tecsun brand and are labeled "QN1000m." They are green and silver in color. I am guessing they are 1000 mAH because of the label - it is not listed anywhere on the battery itself. I spent a lot of time on the Tecsun website, but couldn't find anything on batteries. Maybe if I were able to read Chinese I could have had better luck ...


RECEIVER SIZES !!!!

Brian
 

Hi,
    I am sure the subject has cropped up many times over what constitutes an
ultralight radio and of course there is a defined volume as per the group rules.
Has any of the wideband 0-XXX Mhz handheld receivers by Yaesu, Kenwood, Icom etc
been used / considered in the past ?????
Several are very small size like a credit card.

Re: Kaito KA-212

Haven't seen this one before, but it looks very similar to the Tecsun DR-920, which has analog tuning/digital frequency readout. I'm guessing they have similar performance. My 920 has some internally-generated noise, which makes it less than optimal for DXing, but it is fairly sensitive and selective on MW and SW, and a good radio for the price.

The Ben Franklin Bridge on 530 sounds more likely since the Delaware Memorial Bridge has no HAR station that I know of.  The website could have very well been drpa.org which is their website.

Took advantage of an off day to spend some time at the PL-310 and got
two new stations

530 UNID HAR station, very weak but gave website as drba.net which is
for the Delaware River and Bay Authority and also mentioned something
about "westbound lanes" being closed, which would refer to the
Delaware Memorial Bridge in New Castle DE. The FCC TIS database is of
no real help here.

630 WELJ Scranton PA, 1930 with Phillies-Braves game. A 146-mile
catch, usually not easy with WMAL here.

Now at 791 ULR stations.
