ICOM 706. I do everything with my 706.  A cup of coffee helps too.

That all depends where I'm listening from.  In the backyard around the campfire I will use my PL380 or PL880.  In the bedroom I'll listen using my DX-R8T that lives on my night stand.  In the kitchen, dining room or living room I will use my ICF-2010.  In the ham shack I will use my FTDX3000 (my personal favorite).

How would you describe the receive capabilities of the PL800 vs the Yaesu 3000 - features, sensitivity/selectivity/performance, and sound quality?

My choice of radio at any given time is driven by the task at hand.  All of the radios I own have their strengths.  I won't define aspects of performance as a weakness unless a particular radio is sub par in it's areas of design.  My choices are listed in alphabetical order as follows:

Alinco DX-R8T
CCrane Skywave
Sony ICF-2010
Tecsun BCL-2000
Tecsun PL-380
Tecsun PL-880
Yaesu FT DX 3000

Not a single clinker in the bunch, just different.  I enjoy using them all.


Any chance you would be willing to describe the receiving differences (and similarities) between the PL880 and the Yaesu 3000?

  Used to be with either coffee of beer. Now with age and heart palpitations neither one. Maybe a Gator Aid or a Choc-o-la now.   Grin

I mostly use a Ten-Tec RX-340 or a Ten-Tec RX-320. Occasionally I use my Yaesu FRG-100. I have multiple wire antennas plus a receiving loop which I have on a TV rotator for best reception. That is just my SWL setup!

For SWL I was using a 1938 Zenith 12S267 until I sold it yesterday. Now I'll use my 1935 Philco 16B and for real SWL a SDRPlay with a dedicated 20m dipole plus my other Ham gear.

I'm going to miss this radio.

Currently using a Ten Tec Jupiter and a half wave 40m dipole in the attic.
