ALL DONE AT YOUR OWN RISK !
General "Short Wave"
(MFJ-1025) "Deluxe Noise Canceling Signal Enhancer" N9EWO review we did
for "Monitoring Times" back in April 2007 is still available here
(PDF Document) . We still use a 1026 model (has the extremely
useful preamp) at HQ as once in awhile we experience local interference
that makes any SW/HF reception extremely difficult. It continues to be
a hobby life saver. The Sony TV I talk about in the review is long
gone, good riddance to see that out of here. Quality of the variable
controls used is the major downside to these products (other than the
steep learning curve).
Many replace the main 3 pots with
better quality ones (at around $ 10. to $ 15. for EACH control). In our
limited research near "drop in replacements" COULD be ? : PEC Brand (were Honeywell Clarostat RV4 Series), Both Linear Taper, 10 %, 2 Watt
. NOTE : We have not replaced these in our sample (at least not yet), nor have we acquired the parts to do so.

With the help of the "Internet Archive - Way Back
can all have a LIMITED peek at this web page from the past. Has
always been done on the simple side, but it has sure come a long
way since I started it way back in late 1998. Yes, this web page
has moved around over the years to a few different locations.
Sadly most of the old "GeoCities" site were not
archived to the "Way Back Machine". So those are lost ,
but have fun if you dare.
You will notice
overlap and almost blank pages as I transfered stuff between
sites and the lag with "Way Back Machine" archives
1998 to 2000 : "davez"
2000 to 2003 : "joelt"
2003 to 2003 : "swradios"
(Forture City) (as
you can see, the site here got hacked in it's later days and was
forced to move it)
2003 to 2008 :
2005 to 2009 : "n9ewo"
active with "n9ewo" Ticon as a alternative site for a
time , most not archived...sorry)
2009 to 2014 / 2018 to 20?? : "n9ewo"
2014 to 2018 : "n9ewo2"
