I don't think ANY of the $200 to $300 Shortwave protables have really
top-notch FM. Remember that a decent component FM tuner is going to cost
signifcantly more than a DX-398.

The 398's FM performance isn't its strong point;  while I've worked plenty
of tropo, and  e-skip (from Murfreesboro, TN once.) with it, you can't
receive first adjacent stations at all and second-adjacents only with some

If I had a *good* stereo tuner (I do not), it would probably be better than
the 398.
