I found this very helpful and interesting. So much so that I have my Sangean ATS-909 out and warming up.

I'd like to see a list of SW stations that Herculodge readers find interesting along with frequencies, best time of day to hear them, why they're interesting, things like that.

this will make the frequency readout accurate, but not the best tuning for SSB

you want to center the SSB signal in the passband, which amounts to tuning 1 or 2 khz below in LSB, and above in USB. then spinning the BFO knob til its zerobeat

ix, that works on the Grundig G6 but only for USB. I either have a defective unit or the G6 does not do LSB right.

However, on the Grundig G5, this technique does not work, I can't zero beat any WWV signals tuning 2khz up or down. I can zero beat it easy when it's set right on freq. at when it's right on freq.

I bet your technique would work on a analog radio with a digital reader. Cheers.

ix

the g5's bfo range is just over +-1 khz, not 2

its pointless to zerobeat on WWV anyways since when you get back to util/ham band a readjustment will be needed anyways - the bFO pull seems dependent on frequency/inductance variances
