Title: Receiver comparisons - help
Post by: WAYNEW on June 29, 2006, 07:07:35 PM
Recently I came across a website that had comparisons of receiver test results.  I think it was a W8. Unfortunately, I forgot to  bookmark the site.  Does anyone have a suggestion as to what the site is?  Thanks!

What type of receivers are you interested in? The ARRL has test results from a lot of equipment. You can also try http://www.elecraft.com/ and go to rig comparisons. They list performance for a bunch of receivers. I have a K2, and it is an awesome performer.

Here's another site with independently done tests. In this table the recievers are ranked by narrow spaced dynamic range. "Narrow spaced" being 2 kHz. These are not rankings of ARRL test figures like the Elecraft page are but instead are an independent series test done over many years.

There are some other white papers accessable from the home of this site as well. Good stuff.
