Leixen VV-898: Hans Reviews

Hans reviews the Leixen VV-898:
"The receiver is sensitive, very sensitive. With an average sensitivity of -127dBm the Leixen is amongst the most sensitive radios around. Sensitivity isn’t everything though; the capability to separate wanted signals from unwanted signals is much more important. 
That proved to be something the Leixen VV-898 can’t do at all. Even on a relatively deaf antenna, a Diamond discone, I heard mixer products and out-of-band signals all over VHF and UHF."

  1. Hans lives in an area plagued by heavy intermod. The VV-898 isn't the best choice for that situation. Outside of that situation, the receiver's faults are not nearly so apparent.
