Tag Archives: Pre-selector

Some logs from today, Monday 25th May

I finally managed to get some listening time in! Over the last few days I have been putting together a pre-selector from a circuit and plans on the Bavarian DX Club website. It is in German but the circuit and coil winding info are easy to follow. The Tesun PL-600 that I use suffers from overloading and image interference when coupled to an external antenna. This pre-selector has eliminated that, and the tuning is nice and sharp. This evening I finally managed to here ABC Alice Springs on 4835 Khz by being able to peak up the pre-selector for that frequency. The signal didn’t last long, only about 5 minutes, but enough time to confirm that it was this station. I shall devote another post to the pre-selector another day, but suffice to say it is now a permanent fixture at this listening post.
