Well Jim, I completed the mods yesterday and wanted to wait until I had a chance to listen to the Murania at night before reporting back.

These mods definitely improved dial linearity, selectivity/sensitivity and overall sound quality on my radio! I am hearing stations now that previously were not detected all through the tuning range. The radio does seem to be more directional now. Positioning is important when listening. I saw your post from 12/1/2018, explaining this.

Anyone having trepidations about installing the mods need not worry. The improvements to an already neat little radio where worth the time!

I have one question, Jim. How important to winding the antenna is wire size. I had to use smaller copper wire and in doing so the 61 turns ended up in the center of the ferrite rod. I don't think this is too much of a concern, but thought I'd ask.

Thanks again for the mod information!
