Power drain is reasonably high, so use industrial grade cells. Not only was the signal strong, but using the separate bass and treble controls and the wide selection on filters, it was actually rather pleasant listening, not fatiguing at all. Got one new way back when they first came out.

The AM side is pretty decent, but the FM isn’t very selective. Results 1 to 4 of 4. I contented myself with the radios I had, still enjoying this wonderful hobby that I have participated in for so many years.

This item may be a floor model or store return that 8033a been used.

A decent SWL receiver with external antenna and a preselector helps a lot too. But fast forward several years later.

Ratings and Reviews Write a review. It’s no match for a good modern receiver but it is very stable and reliable. AM stations generally require a narrow filter to reduce noise, but this can reduce dynamic range. This one looked in fantastic shape and had no bids. I have not found a radio that feels as well made, is as sensitive and overall as useful as this one. Spread the radio love. I heard my first Trans-Atlantic broadcast band DX using a DX and I’ve pulled in LW broadcast stations from Europe using just the built-in antenna during the dead of winter when conditions were good.

I pulled up my trusty shortwave schedules app on my phone and began searching for things to listen to. You may also like. Audio level is good on both. That was at the bottom of a sunspot cycle by the way.

I modified mine to have a wider bfo function and to reduce the ‘chuffing’ when tuning it but I have lost the details.

The SW bands have been a bit quieter lately, so not much to report there. Signal handling is very good. All my previous radios had analog tuning so the prospect of getting a radio with a digital display was quite appealing to me!


Defunked it, and cleaned the scratchy slide volume, bass, treble and balance controls and then added some batteries and it works like a charm. I recall computing the contact as 10, miles per watt. I have written a more detailed article of this mod and posted it on the ATS Yahoo Group and posted pictures of the mod.

I have had several shortwave recievers over the years. The build quality is solid and ergonomically it is a pleasure to operate. Once I saw it, I knew I must have it!

Here is a picture of the ad as it appeared:. This is my second radio. Batteries seem to last forever.

I have owned mine atx a very very long time, maybe since it was new. Power supply has negative tip, so that can trip you up. I like the seperate treble and bass controls. The signal was robust and clear as the familiar sound came booming in from Fort Collins, Colorado!
