Equipment / Re: Sangean ATS-909X
« on: February 25, 2012, 0443 UTC »
Just received the PL-660 and listening to it now. Unfortunately, lent my 909X out to a friend, so can't put them side by side.

But, what I can say from using the PL-660 and my memory of the 909X:

The PL-660 has pretty decent reception on the lower HF bands with the whip. The 909X was sorta deaf there w/o an ext antenna. Dark out, so haven't tried the upper bands yet. Was able to get Radio Ronin Shortwave on 6925 tonight with the whip and sounded alright, about S5. Perseus with 102' G5RV was about S8. (no, not comparing the 660 with the Perseus, but giving reference).

Audio quality is decent for a small speaker. 909X sounds better, but PL-660 is far better than the tinny Sony ICF-SW7600GR.

MW seems to be pretty good, picks up plenty of DX. LW is ok, but my Sony ICF-2010 beats it by a little bit. Not a big surprise there. Listened to NDB AA in Fargo on 365 kHz (about 200 mi away). It was just barely coming in on the 2010 at the time and the 660 didn't hear it. Waited a couple of minutes and it was better on the 2010 and the 660 was starting to pick it up.

Sync works as advertised.

Overall from initial impressions, I'm very pleased with the $120 radio.

When I get the 909X back, I may line 'em all up (the 2010, 909X, 660, and 7600GR) and see how they all compare side by side.

So far, about the only thing I don't like about the 660 is that it doesn't have line out.

Heard BT NR 51F.

0105Z: BT NR 5_F 23 0FO4857 1984 BT    (may be a little messed up in the middle due to fading)
0111Z: BT NR 53F 23 028 118 05 1984 BT

0225Z: BT NR 65F 23 ___ __8 59 1984 BT
0231Z: BT NR 66F 23 038 32 813 1984 BT

Using CWSkimmer for the decoding... its not decoding the : correctly. Decoding it manually on the latest:
0309Z: BT NR 72F 23 04:09:42 1984 BT  (CWSkimmer shows BT NR 72F 23 04 809 84 1984 BT)

For 0231Z, it should be: BT NR 66F 23 03:32:13 1984 BT.  (not going to do the others. Think that substituting the 8<space> for : works).

0321Z: BT NR 74F 23 04:2_:17 1984 BT
0334Z: BT NR 76F 23 04:34:53 1984 BT
0340Z: BT NR 77F 23 04:41:04 1984 BT
