[RFI] Handheld Rx for Topband

Fri Mar 12 06:43:40 PST 2010

The little Grundig G5 is good for that.  Does am/fm/sw and has dsb with a
bfo, so its not real good for ssb unless the band is fairly wide open,
though it does have a 'narrow' filter setting.  There are probably some of
their other little am/fm/sw rigs that would be good for that also.
