I use an IC706 as 'signal generator' on MF, and often as receiver, too.
Mine produces almost 2 watts "barefoot" in the lowest power setting.
Because the antenna tuner acts like a bandpass filter on RX, the
performance is acceptable (but an SDR-IQ with digital narrow-band
filtering is much better).
All the best,

DCF39 has been very strong here the past week or so.
I discovered my 706mk2g transmits on 470kHz!
I just need a resonant antenna now......
Has anyone tried using a 706 on MF? I'm not sure how good the rig
filtering is in that range!

DCF-39 is as strong as never seen there in this year, reaching > 30 dB
in 1 Hz!!!!
I will switch to DFCW-90 on 136.172 kHz very soon.
Will someone join in? A pity if not. Where are the active UK stations?
This would be a real chance to leave first traces from UK to SA!
