L'Australia... in un palmo di mano! Il radioascolto da 23 dollari....  View Printable Version 
Thursday, July 02 2020

bclnews
Questa mattina mi è arrivato l'Eton Elite Mini, un ricevitorino sorprendende per soli 23 dollari (acquistato su Amazon.com).
 
Con l'antenna a stilo cortissima del ricevitore non ci fai molto, specie in casa, specie in mezzo ai palazzi. Ma collegando il polo caldo della MLA-30+ ad un filo accoppiato in modo lasco all'antenna della radio (vedi foto) ho ascoltato anche Reach Beyond Australia!!!
 
Non è sensibilissimo e quindi sopporta abbastanza bene anche il sovraccarico (se ci colleghi direttamente il polo caldo della MLA-30+ all'antenna va in crisi solo su segnali fortissimi, tipo Radio Romania Int.). Per questo motivo ho costruito al volo una spolettina di accoppiamento tra l'uscita della MLA e lo stilo telescopico, con risultati davvero soddisfacenti!
 
Il DSP è un po' lento a trovare la migliore elaborazione del segnale; magari all'inizio è un po' distorto con AGC brusca, dopo una trentina di secondi migliora di molto.
 
La scansione è molto veloce, fin troppo, si ferma solo sulle stazioni più potenti, meglio sintonizzare passo passo con la rotellina.
 
Sul manuale mancano delle informazioni: premendo il tasto 9/10kHz ad rx spento si seleziona lo step per le onde medie; inoltre premendo il tasto Time a rx acceso si può commutare da una banda all'altra (per esempio dai 31 ai 25 metri ecc.)
 
La selettività è sufficiente (un po' come i primi portatili Sony e Panasonic)
 
Non mi piace la custodia in pelle rigida, preferisco il sacchettino del mio vecchio Degen DE1102 (di cui devo sistemare il finale audio, volume bassissimo e distorto) o quello della mia mitica fotocamera Lomo LC-A.
 
Ora lo voglio "spremere" ancora di più cercando di ascoltare le low-power europee (Shortwaveservice, ecc), vi terrò aggiornati.
 
Ma ora passo agli ascolti con questo miniportatile! Tutti di oggi 2 Luglio 2020:
 
1248UTC 15450kHz Voice of Turkey in EE 45444 (*)
1257UTC 11950kHz Radio Romania Internazionale in rumeno, 55555 (*)

1425UTC 12005kHz Radio Farda in farsi, 55444
1437UTC 11815kHz China Radio International in EE, 55444
1440UTC 11825kHz Reach Beyond Australia in EE, 35333
1545UTC 12015kHz Voice of Korea in russo, 35333
1635UTC 9400kHz The Overcomer Ministry in EE, tx Kostinbrod, 55444
1718UTC 9996kHz (sintonizzati 9995) RWM Moscow, 45444 gli impulsi si notano anche senza SSB
1825UTC 6070kHz Just Right via Ch. 292, 35443
1948UTC 9920kHz Radio Thailand in EE, 55444
 
(*) ascolti effettuati vicino al router del PC acceso... quando l'ho spento il noise è diminuito notevolmente
 
Niente male... domani lo provo all'esterno (l'ho acquistato proprio per questo), e magari stanotte sulle onde medie. Le FM non mi interessano
 
A presto!
