FOR SALE: Denon FM tuner  View Printable Version 
Sunday, April 15 2018

I have a Denon TU-1500RD tuner, formerly owned by renowned TV/FM DXer Jeff Kadet, that I'm putting up for sale. Asking $ 90. It's only been turned on 3 times since I acquired it from Jeff in early 2014, a few months before he passed. If interested, please contact me offlist. Thanks.

Not a bad morning, with some of the DUs as well as the Korean big guns doing quite well; Japanese not quite so much. The only definite Chinese was on 1323, but that had its moments also. A number of the stronger signals became that way quite suddenly, with a quick (15 or 20 seconds) fade from mumbles to perfect readability.

pretty darn good audio (all of it understandable by a native speaker, at least briefly):

576 2RN man and woman in DU English 1256UT //846

702 2BL woman mentioning ABC radio and emergency broadcasting 1252UT, after two men in DU English

972 HLCA man in Korean 1252UT

1566 HLAZ woman in Japanese 1254UT

Reasonable audio at times during the period (much of it understandable by a native speaker, though often battling w/splash or noise):

594 JOAK man in Japanese 1239UT

612 4QR woman in DU English "6 past 11; 6 past 9 in Western Australia" 1306UT

738 2NR man in DU English, sports announcing //612 1234UT

774 JOUB English lessons 1233UT

828 JOBB woman in Japanese 1252UT

not so reasonable audio, occasional words or phrases in splash or noise could be understood by a native speaker:

594 3WV man in DU English //612 in a big mess with JOAK 1240UT

747 JOIB English lessons 1244UT

774 3LO woman in DU English mixing with JOUB 1253UT, //738 but not 702

891 woman in heavily accented English 1301UT; after fading down, man with a more DU accented English sound was heard. 5AN?

1323 CRI woman in Russian 1233UT

Burbles in the splatter and noise (if lucky, language might be guessed at by cadence of talk, or parallel established by changes in talk or music)

585 pop music, not //576 or 594, 1257UT; 2WEB?

756 man talking, DU English intonation 1232UT

846 2RN woman talking //576 1256UT

909 slow male ballad 1243UT; NZ?

1116 man talking, DU English intonation, a commercial? 1251UT

1134 man talking Japanese intonation 1246UT

1287 pop vocal 1243UT

1215 man talking, maybe Chinese??? 1230UT

1503 man talking DU English intonation? 1311UT

1548 woman talking DU English intonation 1337UT; heard on north Flag as well as the West one, which was a bit unusual

1575 man talking; Southeast Asian language? 1234UT

Strongish het, no or "near imaginary" audio (either undermodulated or ravaged by splatter)

567 693 873 891 1053 1089 1143 1206 1242 1422 1458 1593 seemed to be Asian;
531 558 603 675 837 846 855 864 1017 1035 1098 seemed to be DU

best wishes,
