  People from all over the world seem to hear me, but I find their signals are down in the dirt.   I've tried to improve my "receive" by using the TS-590s band pass to reduce the ? Desense from adjacent strong signals.  Is there any other trick to improving receptions.

Thanks In Advance.  Craig

Usually, in the situation you describe, the problem is high levels of local RF noise.   So:

. . . What kind of antenna are you using?

. . . Where is it located?  Relative to buildings, and relative to your rig.

. . . What kind of electrical equipment is around it?

PS -- if you have any LED lights, and they run off low-voltage power supplies, look there first.

 It's an elevated vertical, surrounded by power lines, digital equipment and everything else.   Funny, the radio sounds quiet.  Maybe there's more back ground noise than I realize.
