I enjoy chasing NDBs.  How about an NDB receiver with a nice tight audio band pass filter?

How about a single band tube transceiver? I know because of power supplies, etc. it wouldn't be dirt cheap but I think there'd be something satisfying sitting around the glow of a little tube rig cranking out Q's in the evening.

Robert,

Without getting into big bucks one can get into really good SWL listening (as well as Ham CW & SSB) with a Radio Shack DX-394, a surprising small receiver that usually sells for less than $200 and give many receivers costing well over twice as much.

Get the B version which is much better that the original and the A version, and if it has the Mike Crabtree mods that's even better!!

Well the ubitx does this, except lacking a wide IF filter and envelope detector.

Funny thing my 12 volt tube regen pulls in distant broadcast band signals (-:

How about a 10 or 12m rig, maybe with a vxo for tuning. Yes counterculture to the si5351, or that could be an add on.

Re: MFJ-959 Antenna Tuner/Preamp manual wanted

MFJ has the manual for the 959C version here: MFJ-959C, ANTENNA TUNER, SWL, WITH PREAMP | MFJ Enterprises Inc

no idea the difference between the original and the 'C' version but probably very little difference.

It is an older model with the old style cream colored cabinet with fake wood-grain sides, 5 knobs straight across in a row, and no meter.

I googled it but found no manual and checked Manual.man but he didn't list that model

Re: MFJ-959 Antenna Tuner/Preamp manual wanted

 

Cliff,

Thanks for the try, but that manual id for the 959C tuner which is much different from the early 959 model.  They re-designed the circuit, and the controls are different.

Yeah, I got it to use with my Radio Shack DX-394 which is a receiver only.

That is a receiver-only tuner so don’t try transmitting through it. 

I suspect you merely adjust all the knobs for maximum noise. 

The current model has a “C” after it and only 4 knobs, but I would expect the manual to be quite similar.
