      Hello everyone,

      Well, I am new to this mail group and I have to say that i have never
      seen the DX-394. However, I do own a DX-300 and I have to say that I
      love it. I just bought it from a friensd who has owned it for years and
      he just didn't use it anymore. I got it for $20.00. In my oppinion i got
      a good deal since this radio works great. Anyway, Like I said I have
      never seen the DX-394 and would really appreciate it if someone could
      send me a picture of one or send me a link that would show me what one
      looks like. I might be interested in purchasing one of these radios if
      it has the features that I want.

      Now I will introduce myself to the group. I am from North Eastern
      Pennsylvania and right now we are buried in about a foot of snow. I
      enjoy sw monitoring and dx'ing when possible. I am 27 years old and have
      been into all aspects( the ones I can understand ) of radio for about 10
      years now. Hope to hear from this group often............

        Hi,

        I'm Frank, live in Luxemburg and I have my DX394 now for one week.
        Its when I drove along the longwave transmitters of Radio Luxemburg
        that I got the intention to buy me a decent broadband communications
        receiver.
        The DX was never for sale over here but I saw it first in England.
        (Radio Shack stopped its business in Belgium about ten years ago). I
        could buy it for a very low price on Ebay I think this receiver is
        very good compared to my digital sony receivers (model 2010).
        Does anyone has some experience with receiving packet radio or do you
        need tx as well to confirm received packages?

        It was some time ago that I browsed through the whole spectrum
        looking for good stations. Well, there are not that many good radio
        stations anymore if I compare to what is available on the internet.
        Radio Netherlands is one of the best, together with the BBC. It might
        be an idea that some radio amateurs together buy a licence and start
        running a decent shortwave or long wave radio station.

        Regards,

        Frank

          Hi Frank and welcome to the group,regarding Packet Radio with your DX394,yes its quite feasable to use the 394 for Packet of course it will have to be 300 Baud which is the norm on the HF Bands,you dont need to Transmit Packet it can quite easily be put into service for RX only,now we are in the days of the Home Computer,its quite possible to Receive HF Packet without using a dedicated TNC but to use the Computers Soundcard along with the SV2AGW Packet Engine Software by George SV2AGW (This is Freeware and can be found using the Search Engine by just typing it the SV2AGW Call Sign and then going to the free Download Page,Georges latest version can be setup as a Dual Port System and of course can be setup for 300 Baud which is the Baud Rate you will hear on your DX394 or any other Receiver,for the actual Decoding Terminal Software do a search for UISS and when you are shown the listing select the Pages of ON1HDT from Guys Site you will be able to Download Guys Fantastic Decoding Package it was in the first instance mainly used for Decoding the Packets from the Amateur Operators on the International Space Station but works very well on the HF Bands as well,once again the Software is Freeware, from there just set things up which is quite straight forward now connect the Audio Output from the DX394 to the Soundcard input on your Machine,go to the Bottom end of lets say 20M (around 14.100MHz ) once tuned in you will have the Packets streaming down Screen,the DX394 does handle Packet as it does the other Data Modes eg SSTV/fAX/MT63 and the many other Data Modes that you will find just using the Soundcard as your Receive Interface BTW many of the Decoding Software Suites are Freeware and dont need any Payment to their Developers.
          Do take your time when using Data Modes and the DX394 Tuning can be a little awkward until you get to know what the Signals sound like.
          Moderators and members of the group sorry if i have gone off Topic but if anyone wants more details eg Frequencies and other info on the Data Modes,why not Drop me a line direct to aviation.radio@... 
          Enjoy your new Radio Frank and do enjoy the group.

                I changed the subject to correspond to the main discussion point, but
                no slght intended, Frank: welcome to the group! It's in the interest
                of other current members and future members that the subject be
                accurate.

                Terry, thanks for the advice and tips - I got some good info out of
                your posting. I don't see it as off-topic for this group - after all,
                it's about getting the most out of the DX-394. While running DSP
                software on a computer coupled to a receiver via its sound card is
                not unique to the DX-394, it's certainly a technique that will be
                novel to many new DX-394 users. This group may not be the best
                resource for all ways of using receivers like the DX-394 but it
                should be a good starting point - your advice is an example.

                Frank, you'll find some more links to DSP software you can run in
                the "DSP Software & Hardware" folder in the "Links" section of this
                group's website; check out Dr. Oliver Welp's website. Also, there is
                a Yahoo group specialising in digital radio:
                http://groups.yahoo.com/group/digitalradio/ ; it has over 4 times the
                membership of RADIOSHACKDX394 and is very lively. Another, smaller,
                less active group is http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DigitalModes/ .
                And, of course, you are likely to find some help on the Usenet
                newsgroup rec.radio.shortwave .

                73, Tom VE3MEO

                is the Baud Rate you will hear on your DX394 or any other
                Receiver,for the actual Decoding Terminal Software do a search for

                Packets from the Amateur Operators on the International Space Station
                but works very well on the HF Bands as well,once again the Software
                is Freeware, from there just set things up which is quite straight

                input on your Machine,go to the Bottom end of lets say 20M (around

                        Just joined the group. I have the Realistic badged DX-394. Found it to
                        be an excellent radio and so far I haven't carried out any
                        modifications. I'm located in Manchester, England.

                        Bill
