> âHi Walt,

âThese newer SiLabs chip-based receivers with SSB are leagues ahead of the
older cheap sets that included SSB or a BFO. I've noticed that the exact
zero beat (within 10 Hz anyway) varies a little bit after the set has been
on a while, but it's nothing like the drift with cheap sets from years ago.
Considering the price, the Skywave SSB's performance is quite commendable.

The alignment seems quite good for a low cost portable-- on my unit the USB
(when checking via ECSS tuning on a strong local) is right on, but LSB is
70-80 Hz high. The fine tuning control is easy to adjust for natural

I've owned three radios that I believe have the same SiLabs chip (the one
with 10 Hz SSB tuning ability)-- the PL-880, the GP-5/SSB and now the
Skywave SSB. I like the Skywave SSB the best of the bunch... the others
were sold.

Guy, whatâs the alignment like especially on SSB? My experience with side
band reception on cheaper sets have generally been poor due to lack of
stability and poor alignment. Comments? Walt

Don Moore has been traveling in Peru, and has posted some DX logs,
especially those somewhat off channel


Western receptions of Peru are pretty non-existent, but this might be
helpful for eastern DXers. Plus the blog is an interesting read.

best wishes,

I have one - use it for testing sound systems at the local University using it as an FM radio source.

Not for DXing.
