Hi Daniel,
itīs not worth trying with the SW100, SNR is not good enough with this radio.

Tnx Simone for the info. I am just looking for a very small receiver for DRM, which has no weight and no size ;-). I take my SW100 normally always to my handluggage, when i travel (which happens quite often). For AM overseas it works quite good.
So i will look for another small piece.

Hi all,
we had a thread about how to modify a Sony ICF- SW1 about 2 years ago, unfortunately it is not available anymore. As there is still interest in modifying this receiver, I have written down this
ICF- SW1 modification (http://www.stoepplernet.de/drm/SW1_drm_modification.pdf)

Hi all,
just some additional information. Currently you get the SW1 for quite reasonable prices e.g. ebay (45-60E). However they most have the known audio problem with the integrated speaker. Have a look at
<p><a href="http://www.cc-module.com/sw1/sw1">AF-Problem </a></p>
for a detailed description for fixing this problem.
It took me about 1 hour for fixing this problem (the time to ride my bicycle to the shop, where i got the caps, not included) plus the DRM modification (with the remote help of Simone ;-).
For those interested in a service manual have a look here:
