Well, I couldn't resist the Siren song of the long waves offered by the DX-160, so I picked it up and have been DXing my heart out for several days with a jury rigged sky hook. It is a blast to play with! I have the room for a nice antenna installation here, so that is now in the works.
I have heard only two signals on long wave, and both were code.
I can't wait to see what it will do with a nice looooong antenna!
