    From BOB KLAHN@1:123/140 to ALL on Sun Jan 11 13:49:00 2015

    Anyone still monitoring this echo. Do any of you use an AM radio
    with a short wave converter? I am looking for schematics for
    shortwave converters.

    So far I have a few, used to be a lot available.

    Also, I see most of the shortwave converters that used to be
    sold are now gone. Ramsey Electronics has discontinued theirs
    within the last few years. Are there any still available?

    Sorry I can't help, but I'm curious to find out what a short wave convertor does?

    I listen to SW and got hooked on AM DXing when I was taking care of
    my newborn daughter and spending way too many early mornings awake.

    I did not find any in a quick google search.

    It down converts the Short Wave Frequnecy to one that is in the
    standard AM band.

    In my younger years that was a very popular hobby, Staying long after
    sunset to catch AM DX

    A short wave convertor converts the shortwave broadcasts to a
    frequency within the medium wave radio bands, so you can listen to SW
    broadcasts on a medium wave AM radio, such as an ordinary AM/FM
    table radio. They used to be common, but I never bothered with
    one. Now that I am retired I am interested in getting back into
    SWL and would like to have a converter for one of the nice table
    radios I have.

    I have managed to compile a number of SWL convertor schematics.
    One goes back to 1955, and is very interesting in the way it
    couples the osc output to the convertor stage. Though the
    transistor used is long obslete.

    Yeah, the link is nasty, but that's how it give it to me.
