Hi everybody. I haven't been doing much shortwave reception this month. I'm still working on verification of my mediumwave station logs, which is getting harder now that I'm down to the weak stations and the spanish stations.
A Sangean ATS-505P was going for a decent price on eBay so I bought it. It's larger than I realized, and the buttons have that spongy feeling that I experienced on the Grundig YB-400PE / G4000A. The tuning knob has a nice smooth action, not the kind of chunky action found on radios like the Tecsun PL-200 and PL-350. The speaker is a bit hissy but it seems to have good range into the lower frequencies. I'm still feeling my way around and trying to decide if I want to keep it.
So, what have you been up to lately?
