I like to do a little AM BCB DX'ing so I was playing around with my 6300 on the BCB late last night. I was pleasantly surprised, it is very very good, excellent sensitivity and the selectivity (along with the use of LSB/USB) allows easy copy of stations buried 10 kHz away from a local powerhouse 700 WLW. Additionally the NB completely removed my local line noise without distorting the signal. It's a very good SWL/BCB receiver. Thanks Flex!

There is really no need to use the sideband mode to listen to an AM station that is close to a stronger station. I regularly copy 40 and 75 Meter AM signals that have SSB signals interfering nearby by grabbing the AM sideband closest to the interfering signal and dragging it toward the carrier frequency. The 6300 will decode the signal from the remaining sideband with full fidelity (and you can widen the remaining sideband to increase bandwidth and fidelity) all while still in AM mode!
