FOR SALE: REALISTIC DX200 Shortwave Receiver

Here is an excellent HF receiver with Dual tuning 
dials.   
It is all checked out thoroughly and in excellent 
shape. 

The Radio Shack DX-200 has good shortwave 
reception 
performance. The receiver is an older model with 
an 
analog frequency readout. The use of analog type 
tuning 
eliminates noisy digital synthesizers so common 
with
inexpensive shortwave receivers. 

The controls on the front panel includes Antenna  
trim, 
AGC fast/slow, BFO pitch with USB/LSB indication, 
Bandswitch (5 bands), RF gain, AF  gain, Mode 
switch 
with SSB/CW-Standby-AM-AM/ANL.

Has the calibrator, main tuning and bandspread 
tuning. 
The front panel includes a headphone jack. 
The bands as displayed on the upper drum type dial 
have 
LED indicators. Both drum type dials have an 
adjustable 
line to align the frequency readout. Using the 
frequency 
calibrator assists in alignment.

The radio is very sensitive. It has a product 
detector for 
SSB and the modes include:
AM, SSB and CW. The antenna input is a two 
terminal type 
for 'twin lead.' You can simply use an end fed 
random 
wire antenna to one terminal. The automatic noise 
limiter 
is effective on most noise and it does not distort 
the audio.

This receiver is superior to the new handheld and 
portable type receivers.

Included AC power cord in excellent shape. 
Everything works 
on this radio as it should.  This receiver comes 
with a 
copy of both the service manual and the operators 
manual. 

Available for $125.00 plus shipping
