Not doubting your motives, but I suggest a used Pro-95 is worth a lot more than a DX-300. Sell the Pro-95 somewhere else and go ahead and buy the DX-300; use the rest of the cash and get other goodies like an antenna.KEVPRO95 said:Ok the whole thing here is. My pro-95 is used, and I almost never use it anymore. So I figured why not trade & try something new?
Yes, you can receive all those things with this radio.. but forget about using anything other than an outboard antenna with it. Small whip antennas are generally only good for catching high-powered Shortwave broadcasters and little else.KEVPRO95 said:I want to listen to military stuff, and uscg,etc....Like the shortwave freqs used during the bad hurricanes down south last year. They lost their normal comms units, so they used HF freqs I believe.
If I had this unit I could of listen to them....right?
Also....I want information on antennas for this unit. My friend says it has a antenna, but it's ok. So chances are I will be looking into another one. I can't attach anything to the outside of my house though.....all feedback is welcomed.
Okay, so you might have a few options. Being on the second floor is good. Here's a few ideas:KEVPRO95 said:Ok I have access to a attic.
The landlord doesn't allow anything attached to the outside of house/roof. I have put my magnet mount antenna on my AC on the 2nd floor. My apartment is 2 floors. Plus the attic/crawl space.
Ya I know I would change my name...LOLkc2gog said:if you get rid of the PRO-95, you may need to change your screen name
I had a DX-300, It was really huge. As long as the temperature is stable it should not drift tooo much.
It was an ok radio for its vintage, but I ended up selling it and puttign that money towards somethign newer.
