Gordon Shackelford, AE6QW
Ultra High Performance HF Receivers: $1K to $18K Really?
Today we are seeing an interesting variety of HF receiver architectures vie for the highest performance under difficult receiving conditions. Over the years, Sherwood Engineering has tested and rated six pages of mostly receiver sections of HF transceivers. This talk discusses the best of these test results, the Page 1 Receivers.  Performance at this level is not really related to cost, with top rated receivers ranging in cost from $1K to $18K.

Gordon Shackelford, AE6QW, is Lecturer Emeritus in the Department. of Physics at SDSU, where he has taught electronics for portions of five decades.  While he has only been in amateur radio of 10 years, he has played with HF receivers since Junior high school. He is treasurer of the Lakeside Amateur Radio Club and continues to teach as a volunteer at SDSU and Amateur Radio license courses.
