Nice set

Eddystone 830/7, Desktop Shortwave receiver

I wanted one when I was as boy and beginner to the hobby in the mid seventies. But I could not afford it then.

Last year I found one on the used market. This set has aged gracefully, it offers 1 kHz direct readout, pleasant audio, decent selectivity the sensititivty is quite OK, too.

The main drawback is its lack of stability.
