This one is 8 watt. Ordered 3 of them today along with the Baofeng BF-S112 Two Way Radio Speaker,
Tecsun PL990, and ANT-60 Short Wave Antenna. We can compare them, was looking to make a communication video with them.
Will write a first draft to our final (if there is such a thing) communication page with radio recommendations.
Ryan, the Tecsun 990 looks so sweeeeet!
Looking forward to hearing your impressions.
In the forthcoming communications roundup I would also add these items to the shortwave operators accessories list.
Especially for shortwave operators who, like me, live in radio interference crossfire zones.
The best purpose-built short wave listening antenna on the planet:
Vibroplex, Bencher, GHD and Hi-Mound Morse Code keys. INRAD headsets, microphones and filters. Par EndFedz EFHW antennas, Spiderbeam fiberglass poles. mAT-TUNER automatic antenna tuners, Easy-Rotor-Control rotator controllers, DX Patrol receivers
And, to get a clean signal back to that nice Tecsun - a jumper with an integrated RF choke to squeeze out local RF like AC units, refrigerators, TVs and all the electronic crap your neighbors kids are messing with.
I was wondering if anyone in the group would be willing to help me get my tower up and running. It's up,but no antennas on it yet, don't want to get caught in the dark. Someone with experience would be great!
