My 4th receiver, a Roadstar TRA-2350P, is a really good value for money receiver. It covers the Medium Wave (522 kHz - 1620 kHz) and has three overlapping Short Wave bands (1711 kHz - 29999 kHz) in 1 or 5 kHz steps. The receiver shows good performance, the selectivity is good and the sensitivity is excellent, even if you use the Telescopic Antenna.
The interesting thing about this receiver is that the people who designed it have thought of a lot of very useful things: Battery cases for LR20 or LR6 batteries (switchable), a 230 VAC power cord or an external DC adapter. The DC adapter is not included in the package.
There is a choice of a telescopic antenna or an external antenna, there is an RF Gain control, a DX / LOCal switch, Narrow and Wide IF filters and a 455 kHz IF output which can be used for, in my case, a DRM IF converter.
This circuit is simple, very stable and works fine down to less than 5 Volts supply voltage. The 467 kHz local oscillator frequency is generated by a 2SK241 FET and an IF transformer. The secondary winding feeds the balanced mixer in the S042P.
