CB receiving & Shortwave receiving (part one)

CB receiving & Shortwave receiving (part one)

Post by Redwir » Sun, 07 May 2000 04:00:00

Having just recently reentered the CB scene after an
absence of about 35 years (thanks for putting up with all my
questions) I have made an interesting observation about CBers and
their equipment. I have made this observation from the standpoint
of a serious shortwave listener (When I say serious....think
thousands of dollars in receivers).

I notice if a radio "receives very well" (very sensitive) the
average CBer says it is a "noisy" radio and actually counts it as
a mark against that radio instead of a plus.

Instead of saying,"boy this readio really pulls the weak ones in
under all that static and noise." I find that the average CBer
says, "boy listen to all that static and noise...this is a noisy
radio." ingnoring the fact that there were weak signals under all
that static that the "quite" receiver didn't even know was there!

Just a curious observation.  Please see part two of this
observation.

I consider a noisy receiver to hiss like a snake with no antenna
attached.
