Hi George,

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. Details here:

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,
  Wolf DL4YHF

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!

This is your chance! This night appears to be VERY quiet on the
Venezuela grabber,

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!
