Any Real User Feedback On NASA HF3W SSB Receiver

Hello CF,

I am considering the purchase of a NASA HF3W SSB Receiver which cost just under $300 including shipping.

I have an ICOM M700 SSB transceiver but rarely use it to transmit but am able to when needed. I mainly use it as a receiver for weather, cruiser updates, etc.

The M700 is a bit complicated to use and I'm not certain how much longer it will function but for now no issues.

I would love to hear back from actual users of this receiver.

For those interested in more about this product, here are the basic specs.

Thanks, Jeff

TARGET HF3/P & HF3/W
The Target HF3 is a masterpiece of R. F. engineering covering the entire spectrum between 30Khz to 30Mhz. For those new to single side band reception the unit comes complete with everything needed to ‘get on the air’ including a comprehensive instruction manual which includes a list of useful marine frequencies.

Controls on the front of the receiver change reception mode, from a narrow filter for SSB reception to a wide filter which enables high quality audio signals to be heard from broadcast stations around the world. They also control ten memory channels to store your favourite frequencies.

The large, clear liquid crystal display shows the precise frequency tuned to and there is no need for constant ‘correcting’ with the tuning knob so often associated with SSB signals as the receiver
is fully synthesised.

TARGET HF3/P
The Target HF3/P has a fixed level audio output to connect to third party weatherfax software. The receiver is supplied complete with a basic long wire antenna, 12 volt power cable and instruction book.

TARGET HF3/W
The HF3/W is complete with CD software and interface cable for connection to a PC sound card. The software enables reception of weatherfax pictures, Radiotelex weather forecasts and Navtex. Simply install the software, plug in the supplied cable to the receiver output and PC sound card to receive weatherfax pictures and forecasts from around the world.

Requires PC Windows XP to 7.
