Retro Receiver Review: Dansk RX4000
« on: October 02, 2015, 0050 UTC »
Craig Seager is one of Australia's finest SWL DXers, a longtime listener with great experience on shortwave, mediumwave and other modes. His amateur radio callsign is VK2HBT. Craig also has another special interest - old radio receivers. He has personally restored many fabulous radios to full working order and has accumulated a fine collection of his own. His knowledge of communications receivers is extensive.

The Mount Evelyn DX Report blog is delighted to welcome Craig who, over the next few months, will regularly contribute a new series called Retro Receiver Reviews - a look at some common and not so common communications receivers from the past. This series will be of interest to both amateur radio operators and shortwave listeners.

Craig's first review has just been published, covering a radio not often seen these days - the Dansk RX4000 receiver. Check it out at:

Retro??? That's a practically brand new used radio! Why George Zeller would swap his legendary purple snowsuit for that rig, Watkins-Johnson or not.

Very cool, Rob.
