Brnadon:
Adjust the coil antenna to get maximum signal at frecuencies around 550-600 and then adjust the trimmer capacitor usually at the variable capacitor at frecuencies around 1500 and repeat the procedure at least 2 times until you get no further improvement.

Huesby - I'm not very knowledgeable about the internal electronics of radios - can you tell me what it looks like or what letter it likely starts with (the tunable components start with letters like R or L or C, etc). There's quite a few tunable components in this thing.

Brandon, I'm not familiar with this model but if you take a picture of the internal (the variable capacitor, the one who tune the stations) and send it to me I'll gladly help you.

As a reminder to all, Rainer Lichte's two books of reviews of AM/FM/SW radios are available for download at:

Radio Receiver: Chance or Choice - 93 MB in size

In both cases, please click on the "Free User" button, wait for the timer to expire, and then click on the "Download" button.

After you download the first book you will have to wait 15 minutes before you can download the next.

Jeff if you can publicize this posting I am sure a lot of radio enthusiasts will appreciate it. Thanks!

Lichte's books and magazine articles have been a great inspiration for generations of SWL. I lost some in moving vans. Still own one tattered german edition.

If you are a radio addict and can get a paperback edition on a garage sale or antique book shop: buy!

Thanks for your help Huesby, I managed to get it aligned much better than it was and sensitivity seems pretty constant across the entire band all with the tuning coil in the same location.

Just get an AM passive loop for 40 bucks at your local radio shack and prepare to be shocked at the improvement. The loop is branded Grundig and works well with that brand. It's turn my modified DX 160 with a 8 1/4 inch transplanted ferrite into a monster. Trust me on this one...

brandon

Randy - I actually have a passive AM loop, though it is the Terk brand (I've owned it for about 10 years) - that thing does improve reception considerably. But I plan on selling this radio (I'm starting to accumulate too many radios) I'm just trying to get it up to par before listing it, plus this is making for a good learning experience for me.
