Tecsun with proper tuning knob?

Postby lars » Wed Jun 28, 2017 11:15 am

Hi

I have a Tecsun SW receiver and it works well except in one particular -- the tuning knob is a sort of thumb control, and it's horrible to scan across a whole band. The good thing (probably the only good thing) about my home-brew SW receiver is that I can scan a decent frequency range with one turn of the tuning knob. There's a fine-tune control for homing in when I'm in roughly the right area.

Does anybody make a SW receivers at Tecsun prices that has a "real" tuning knob on the front? Ideally one where you can program how much of the band each spin of the knob corresponds to. I note that the more expensive Tecsuns all seem to have the same, useless tuning arrangements.

I have a feeling that the answer is "no", but I thought it worth asking.

Best wishes
Lars
