How to measure the performance of the HF receiver?

In the comment to “HF5L Radio Club in SSB Fieldday 2018” Marek SP5IXS rightly pointed out that “third order dynamic range is a key parameter”. He also asked good questions: What is the difference between IP3 and “3rd order dynamic range”? What is the relationship between RX sensitivity and “3rd order dynamic range”? As for […]

SV8/SP5ISZ

September 14, 2018 Marek SP5ISZ announced that he had started up QRP from the island of Milos. He had an ICOM 703 (10W only) with a 7.5 Ah battery, an LW 41m antenna about 6m above the ground, about 50m from the sea on the beach. With a 9: 1 transformer, the antenna has tuned […]
