    Would you dare driving an old-timer ralley with a modern Formula-1 racing car ?
    Certainly not !
    Receiving an old-time transmitter with a soundcard and a PC or an SDR
    is as well improper style or even bad taste, but in no way a remarkable achievement.
    Everybody can do so !
    In my eyes the only proper way to receive SAQ is using an old-time receiver,
    the older the better. Not necessarily an original receiver of the twenties
    – who is lucky to own one ? – but any non-digital hardware receiver
    – original or reconstructed, industrial or home-built – might be ok.

    To encourage listeners and demonstrate what can be done,
    I recommend installing an SAQ RECEIVER GALLERY in this forum,
    where every successful listener may describe his equipment,
    preferably with a photo or perhaps schematic diagram.
    No.1 will certainly be Jim Moritz with his ingenious electromechanical receiver,
    but I am convinced there will be many other units
    from the twenties to nowadays.

      actually I am restorating this great old Telefunken E108Lw4




      the first band of this very glowing radio is 10 to 31kHz.

      Maybe I was a bit narrow-minded in limiting the presentation in the SAQ RECEIVER GALLERY
      to hardware receivers. The receiver is only part of the equipment and
      antenna, recorder, any evaluation gear, even the power supply, they all are important too.
      Anybody who has a new idea in software equipment should be equally welcome.
      Even having had no reception might be interesting in order to teach others how to do it better.

      I am convinced that within a very short time there will be many, many contributions to the gallery
      from all over the world. I myself own about a dozen sets usable for SAQ reception,
      ranging from 27 tube LF receiver Collins R-389 over level meters to home-built regens.
      Each time SAQ is active, I try another equipment and I would like to describe them all with features,
      advantages and disadvantages.
      So, friends of SAQ, wherever you may be, follow me ! DL2JMB Juergen Brustat
