3726RE: New DX-440 owner
- Oct 29, 2013
They are really really good radios for the money and I can tell you they hear a lot too. Put a good outdoor antenna up like a 21 ft vertical or a 80 ft longwire and you can hear stations like RTM Sarawak on it ! I did.. back in the 90s early 2000's.
I got another one after my older 803a bit the dust somewhere. Now using it on some decent catches,.

Other than my Ham gear these days, all of my portable SW equipment is non-SSB. I paid $40 and asked if it worked. After some research, I did a quick sensitivity adjustment. I have been using it on SSB (80 through 20 meters.) Nice old radio. It took me a little slice of time to figure out the rf gain. All in all I seriously like this radio. Going up to my bedroom to listen to it now.
