[QUOTE=pjxii;2884747]I'm old school so I have no insight into SDR, but for longwave NDB DXing I would recommend the Lowe HF-225. Been using the Europa version but either are fine. Nice narrow Murata 2.4 kHz with a 200 herz audio filter in CW mode centered on 800 herz and the tone control makes a difference in pulling out the tone through noise. One of the most sensitive receivers ever made on longwave (many of the most highly acclaimed communication receivers don't have the ears at these frequencies though they're terrific on HF).

The Wellbrook also does well on VLF. Besides Cutler, Maine, I picked up a number of stations in Europe and North America.

I bought a Lowe HF-235 yesterday and picked up BBC last night on 198 KHz. My WJ-8711A is also excellent on LW,. I had good results with the Elad FDM-S2 and SDRPlay RSP1 with filtering. My Icom R2500 is nearly deaf on LW,
