Radio DX Equipment


Just received my new Tecsun AN-100 Antenna. It is an AM loop Antenna, I’ll try it out tonight and report on how it goes!

Edit: Works like a charm on the D-808! I can filter out the interference with it and tune into the desired frequency which then becomes quite clear.



I have been thinking of getting this, now I know it works well I probably will.



Same here, I would like to get back into AM DXing, it will help reduce the increasing amount of electrical interference we get on AM these days.

I ordered mine from a seller on Taobao for around $30. Quick shipping from China too.

I don’t bother with MW DX from home for this reason. At least you have plenty of public beaches and headlands around your area.

It would be interesting to do a ‘shoot out’ between the Tecsun loop and the standard 30 cm PK loop. My custom PK loop is much larger (70 cm).



And see if one runs rings around the other :rofl:

They need one of those shortened URLs for that site!



Turns out they have now raised the price of the R-108 to $237.78… That seems a tad expensive to me.



Oh wow, yes, I agree.

I fail to see how it’s better than the Tecsun PL-3xx or Digitech AR-1780 or similar that are usually A$100 or less.

It’s now $70 on Ebay



THAT’S a MUCH better price.

Not sure why it’s been reduced by 70% already,hopefully it was just a pricing error.

I will have a look for some reviews and give consideration to buying one at $70 including postage.

Has anyone heard of the Corus brand of radios?

This DAB+/FM with RDS model is available through Tecsun for $100, looks to be an intriguing small portable unit with a large screen.
