August 11, 2010



I had in the past to repair a MARC NR 82 F1,this had intermittent failure of the frequency counter,bad capacitors on the power supply and so one.Overall performances are not very good.I have the opportunity to test the last MARC NR108F1,with PLL.This set fare better than the NR82 and 52F1,it is more sensitive and fairly stable (near by SONY ICFSW7600),frequency counter cover the entire spectrum (without gap!) from 150khz to 520Mhz.I think that you must forget analog MARCS,if you want one put your choice on NR108 (or Pan Crusader8000).Pay attention ,in Germany these receivers have limited ranges without VHF and UHF.

I've had a Pan Crusader X...BEWARE!!! The linkage from the bandswitch knob to the actual switch is cheap plastic, and will fail! I liked the radio overall, but it became useless when this happened. I'm now a proud owner of a Pan Crusader 8000, and am finding it much more reliable. It's a much better receiver than Larry Magne indicated in his review years ago.

I had the same problem as Chuck Ermatinger. On the band selector axle there is a very breakable cog. Usually it breaks apart after some weeks. I then opened the cabinet and luckily I fond the fragments. I reglued them around the axle with epoxy reinforcing everything with a washer. It still works. My advice: handle the selector knobs like raw eggs. Btw, the receiving properties of my sample are absolutely satisfying.
