Hi there, here is part 2 of my reception videos taken in the tropical rainforest of Pará, Northern Brazil. As I mentioned in my previous post, I took a Tecsun PL-680 with me on the trip because I didn’t want to risk losing or trashing one of my precious vintage portables but also because of the following:
- It can handle a longwire very well without overloading (I actually only used a 5 metre wire)
- An excellent synchronous detection circuit and audio bandwidth filtering options
- Excellent sensitivity, as demonstrated by the many DX reception videos on YouTube
- If it got lost or damaged it would be a pain, but not difficult to replace
So, what can you hear in the jungle? Part 2 of my group of reception videos follow below – I hope you enjoy them.
