Chibo KKC 38

This is one of the  radios my father bought  and used for sometime , but seems he stopped using it due to a possibly high battery drain . the seller of this radio, ie from an electronics store has stressed him that this raio is very good with very good sensitivity  comparing to other models  I already used  as for example the  Chibo 330 or the Degen models who knew about (I mean the radio seller who is also a friend of me )
 Pretty nice model , huh ?

Any way  this radio  costed  my father  about 20 euros , 2 years ago  and seems  as a relatively good promise to my personal requirements , using a full PLL  system with digital readout and also a sleep timer 

 Above you see  how radio is tuned with small buttons . They are quite small and still require  some force as  the remain of the main display

But using it , its buttons  were quite tough to my fingers  and pushing them  required  some extra force . I don’t know  if this was  the bad of this copy or of this model in general
And below I put  my experiments in a place inside the city of Thessaloniki

MW:
-10 mem presets
- 9 kHz steps
-fair to good sensitivity on MW on nights
-fair audio  using earphones, with the  abiltiy to hear some whistles from the nearby stations (9 khz hets )
-lamp inserts  some QRN and audio volume !!
-there is spatter /qrm from  very strong stations  to 3 steps up and down , but the 500 Watt  station 700 meteres far  can cover 6 steps up and down

FM and FM 1
-steps of 100 kHz
-Fm uses  88-108 
-FM 1 uses  the Chinese band on 68-88
-Fm1 band is full of images of  21,4 (2x10.7) below is a station on 95.5 can be hed on 74.1
-monophonic audio in stereo headphones (heard in both ears ) and relatively good audio
-Fair  sensitivity on FM  bands , though nearly all signals  are quite  strong inthe region ...
-lamp inserts  some audio volume too !!
 As in result radio is quite good in the MW band but posibly not so good on the FM
Not more comments on the moment

yes Zach, interesting radio, wonder how it performs on an external antenna clipped to it's telescopic?
Amazing how cheap some of these new Chinese radios are these days, I bought a Tecsun PL-600 on ebay the other day for $60, it is dual conversion, proper PLL digital with SSB and it is very sensitive using it's telescopic antenna on shortwave, it overloads a little with an external wire antenna plugged in but the attenuator control gets around this problem! It is not in the same class as my E1 but it is still a great little radio for the price! Best wishes Zach! Michael
