CW selectivity is rather poor on many older model general coverage shortwave receivers. A high quality audio filter can greatly improve this! See how the Timewave DSP-9+ audio filter greatly improves CW reception of a classic Kenwood R-1000 receiver.

Amazing shortwave listening catch! HiFer FCC Part 15 unlicensed beacon MTI, located near Stone Mountain, GA, received in Victorville, CA on June 19, 2016 at 0140 UTC. Received on 13.557 MHz using an Icom 718 and a G5RV antenna. The signal was EXTREMELY weak with heavy QSB (fading). My trusty 718 did a great job pulling in this beacon, with the 500 Hertz CW filter engaged and the IF shift properly adjusted to help reduce noise. It was a tough catch. Listen carefully and you will hear two full IDs of MTI.

Here's a very unique application for our Model CK-4000 LED Stopwatch Timer!   Todd Roulston makes a GREAT cowboy toy, and ropes "Little Speedy" in just 0.80 seconds.  That's fast!!

2B WINS!!!  Not surprising.  It's hard to beat the 2B/2BQ combo.  Same goes for the 2C/2CQ.  They are truly outstanding CW receivers.  GREAT video.  73!

Here's a quick look at a classic Cronus 3T vintage digital LED stopwatch timer, manufactured by Intersil in the mid 1970's.

Amazing shortwave listening catch!  HiFer FCC Part 15 unlicensed beacon K6FRC, located near Patterson, CA, received in Victorville, CA on June 16, 2016 at 2100 UTC. K6FRC transmit power is 0.001 watts into a Ham Stick vertical antenna. Received on 13.565 MHz using an Icom 718 and a G5RV antenna. The signal was generally  very weak with heavy QSB (fading), but at times it peaked at about 569 as captured here on the video.  The 718 did a great job receiving this beacon, with the 500 Hertz CW filter engaged to help reduce noise.

We started a cool new playlist on our Youtube channel:  Ham Radio Rig Receiver Battles!  Hams love to compare receivers.  This is a collection of interesting videos where the best rigs are in performance combat!  https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLhV_Ks9K9UbvuZ9EaKm2-JmIvNUWoBsAj

Thanks for the comment Khori.  Yes, indeed, these old Cronus stopwatches, along with their other related brand names, were extremely well made and built to last.  They are very nice to look at, and easy to read.  The "HP style" case that was included with these stopwatches was a nice addition to this very high quality American made product.

Hi Rick -  The T-50 is such a classic!  It is my favorite among all the 1950's and early 60's MOPA novice transmitters.  Yours sounds great, and in nice condition.  Thanks for posting.  You have a fantastic shack too!  73,  Jack
