I found the AOR AR7030 superb for MW DXing. I remember hearing Brazil and other South Americans at night using a long wire going up the roof of the house.

Sadly less than a year after buying it (late 90s) QRM levels suddenly increased so much that MW DXing was rendered impossible.

Well increasing QRN levels are what prompted research into Loops/EWE/Flags/Pennants etc. A long wire on the roof now would just be a noise receptor in urban/suburban environments.

I think it is okay for suggest that the Kenwood R1000 given by a Ham friend is silent for MW DX also LW but the friend did tell that the radio for age need possible realignment and possible soldering for the pwr & receiver board circuit. For now i wait the airspy HF+ arrive and a flag balun so can use only the TS 850s + ALA1530 actif loop and for now receive not MW US DX & Latin Americas because RNE Espagne & UK stations dominate here the band.

Good Luck and happy DX-ing!!

The D-808 is indeed a fine little radio (I own one), but I'm surprised one can consider it as an "ideal MW DX equipment".
A SDR would offer much more.
Just my 2 cents
Bonsoir Patrick, You mention you have a XHDATA D808 radio and i would like for knowing if you have the problem of mute when tuning frequencies?
If so i might be able to resolve the problem for you ;) but do not guarantie it will work but if you are intrested, let me know on here

Cordialement

Hi Pascal,

Of course, I'm facing the annoying so-called "soft-mute" issue using the XH DATA.
Let me know how you managed to fix it !
For sure, it will please each and every D-808 owner :D

Have a nice day,

Patrick

Hello Patrick, apologies because i make a statement for stopping soft mute with the D-808 but in fact i misread/ understand the action. I read a solution in a forum that holding the touch 5 for long time can stop this problem but i now understand i was not correct :oops:

Bon Weekend

Pascal
