Hi Iban, They do work, but you
must realise they are not intended as radio receivers, and in
many aspects their performance as radios is compromised by
their design as line measuring instruments. Problems include
IMD and lack of front end filtering, some lack audio output.
Yes you can get round this or you can be lucky that you
location and antenna help mitigate the problems.
You might be better to consider
an SDR these days but make sure it really cover the
frequencies of interest. Graham G0NBD has information on
direct sampling mods to the DVT-B dongles. In Europe there are
a lot more LF signals from very strong stations than in the US
so be careful of US opinions that rate these as receivers. I
have a couple of W&G units which while useful as test
equipment are less than brilliant and barely worth their cost

Subject: LF: HP 3586C
selective level meter for LF and MF
I'm looking to purchase a 3586C. Somebody is using it?
Can give-me feedback about to use in 136 and 477 kHz?
Thanks for advance
