CC Skywave-- TP-DX Seoul Music


Gary DeBock
 

Hello All,
 
For those considering a purchase of a new C.Crane Skywave and wondering how the 1 kHz DSP audio sounds for transoceanic DX recordings, here is recording of 603-HLSA (from Namyang, South Korea, a Seoul suburb) playing American classic rock at a good level yesterday. The good news is that the 1 kHz DSP audio sounds quite a bit more balanced than that of the Tecsun DSP Ultralights (PL-380, PL-310ET etc.), which tend to clip off the higher audio frequencies.
 
 
After Boston's "More Than a Feeling" at 1331 UTC the Doors rock the Pacific with "Touch Me." Unfortunately 603-China takes Jim Morrison's shouts a little bit too literally, and ends up taking over the frequency with its own music.
