All purposes receiver  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have bought this receiver on 1984.It differs with the RF2900 : LW added ,and a real preselector on all AM bands.The digits are green (not blues).This set is very sensitive both on FM and AM bands.The preselector add an effective gain (very impressive on LW and MW!) and it minimize spurious that plague RF2900 and DR28.MW bands run until 1640 khz so pirates stations can be heard with peaking preselector,without it these stations are too weaks.On SW there is also a gain,even on 28Mhz.The tuning mechanism is smooth without backlash.SSB stations are readeable but with difficulties.This set is good for AM dxing even on the whip antenna.If you want to buy one,choose a DR29 with preselector,not a RF2900.I am using this set,particularly for pirates stations on MW (above 1600khz)and on 49m band
