So... $200 is a great price point, especially for a component tuner. I just have one little concern.
I've owned a Sangean ATS 909 for around three years now. It has continuous coverage from 150 KHZ-30MHZ, tons of pre-sets with assignable names, SSB, a gain control, external antenna input, etc... It also covers FM, and has RDS support.
This, even after 10 years of being on the market, is the iPod of portable shortwave radios.
The FM is pretty darn sensitive (on par with my Kenwood component tuner). There is just one little problem- It's extremely prone to overload.
I live 7 miles from Rochester's KNXR tower, which a number of the local stations broadcast off of, including KNXR (97.5mhz/100kw) and KLSE (91.7/94kw).
My stereo is located 2" above ground in the basement, with a large hill and 2 metal garage doors in line with the KNXR tower, so overload is not an issue. I once moved the reciever to a room upstairs, in an attempt to see what kind of reception I could get from Cities stations.... and a I got an FM band full of KNXR and KLSE.
On another occasion, I brought the receiver up the hill where our antenna system will soon be mounted (where I can physically see the tower). What did I get? a band full of harmonics, but I was able to find a spot where I could null out the signal with the receiver's antenna. In this spot, the TC stations came in with 8 out 10 signal bars (at 75 miles)!
As some of you know, it won't be long until I'm tuning in stations with a 17+ ft long FM antenna and pre-amp (mounted atop this hill). Now, I think my component tuner will fare ok, but I plan to trap out KNXR and KLSE eventually.
Sometime soon, I want to upgrade to the Sangean HDT-1. I'm just doubtful as to whether it will overload.
