KC5EIB, are you sure you are thinking of the right radio? The DX-100 was made from 1981 to 1984 and it was the lowest cost entry level desktop Radio Shack had at the time, indeed possibly ever. The DX-100 was the entry level, the DX-200 was the mid level, and the DX-300/302 was the top end.When that radio was released, it was one of the best general coverage short wave receivers on the market.
Yes, it is normal for the radio to not receive in Band A when in SSB/CW mode but it does receive in AM mode. For some reason the makers decided you would not need SSB/CW in that band so in that position the radio acts as if you are in “STD BY”. It might have something to do with the mixing and conversion scheme, but I have never looked at the schematic with that in mind to confirm it.Well got the radio, seems OK to me. CW/SSB and channel A is nothing just quite, channel B - D can hear noise. Is that normal? The AM setting and A - D all work fine. Picks up fair with the built in whip. A long wire is a must.
