Like a lot of people, however, I had no means of purchasing a receiver as expensive as it was at the time. See ast for description of any imperfections.

Probably due to the input filtering since it was built before the MW X-Band. I could never be for sure, though, because my unit was not equipped to decode atd signals. But fast forward several years later. I opened the box and carefully wrapped in old newspaper, was the radio that I had been pining for since my early teens.

I have had this receiver for as long as I can remember and I can remember back a long time! This radio comes with a variety of product names, but this was the first to evolve.

The usual battery connector problem and a dirty encoder were the only problems and easily fixed. Considering it’s vintage and original price range it’s a very good unit.

I pondered over this for qts of about 3 minutes and than quickly got into my car and headed to my local Radio Shack. Great RF sensitivity, about.

The other day, however, while listening to some of my favorite stations on what is arguably my best current portable receiverthe Tecsun PL, I got to thinking about some of my sts receivers, in particular, my Realistic DX A Noise Blanker would have afs nice. RF gain control works smoothly as does the BFO control.

New to Ham Radio? Radio Shack’s version was the DX I’m giving it a 5 because of it’s sensitivity, durability, clean sound, ease of use and making allowances for it’s age.
