w2aew, thanks for posting the video. I understand the basic description of how the filtering works with the up-converter, but I am lost in the details. I am by far not as knowledgeable in electronics as you.  That being said, I have the same up-converter purchased from NooElec, and I am not having much luck receiving any HF signals through the SDR dongle. I wonder if some of my problem is that I live very near most of the TV and FM, transmitters in this area? I am also within 1 mile of a AM station as well. If this is my problem, can you suggest any additional filtering that may help.

+Tim Francisco A simple high pass filter in series with the antenna should work. You can use an online calculator like the one linked here.  A quick first pass on a 3rd order high pass gives a simple T-style filter.  Two 1.6nF caps in series, with a 2uH inductor from the junction of the two caps to ground.  http://www-users.cs.york.ac.uk/~fisher/lcfilter/

Looks like a neat little radio. How is the selectivity? Also, does the AM antenna work well?

Got my Stylus 1 about 3 weeks ago, still learning the camera. I have limited time on weekends for the hobby. I downsized from a DSLR to the Stylus 1. This is a great little camera, the lens is fantastic.

Thanks for the video John. I like the way you put both boards in one housing. I have the same components from nooelec, but I have the 100.000mhz oscillator on the up converter. I am getting a lot of overload on HF. Could this be the problem?

I really like the new log feature. I will actually log my stations now that you have made so easy. The recorder is great. I wish I had recordings from the late 1960's when I got started in the hobby.

Ordered sweet and sour chicken. Chicken was over cooked to the point of being more like jerky and too much breading. Also ordered egg drop soup, it had very little flavor, almost like water. This was my first order from China King, maybe it was just a bad day for the cook, but I will not find out because it was also my last order.
