Re: 13-10-18 Observations

Good question. I would say yes, definitely, because there is bound to be something you want to fine-tweak. The noise in my case, but there is another example. My local TalkSport 1107 from Boston is solid here, but not mega strong. Since it is a stable signal, I was able to null it out by adjusting t...

Re: 13-10-18 Observations

I am a Bodgitt & Scarper Ltd. man. Always have been. Always will be. The flag started off with the best intentions here, also the correct dimensions, spacing, etc., but it currently works better like this. If you look at it along the lines of stringing up a wire in the shape of the flag, then yes, t...

Re: 13-10-18 Observations

My flag. Flag 1.jpg Flag 2.jpg It works better like this! :lol: The yellow wire is the base wire. I have far less noise when I raise the centre of this wire and wrap it around the plant. The green coated wire is the top section, which is part of a continuous run for the rest of the flag wire. The ve...

Re: 13-10-18 Observations

I can add something to this. A ham friend wound me some transformers for flags and Beverages. He said it wouldn't make any obvious difference to the ear or even S meter if I used 50 or 75 ohm coax. It would amount to one extra turn on the transformer. That is how forgiving flags are. As for the sign...

Re: 13-10-18 Observations

You have an excellent location for transatlantic DX Stuart. Jaguar seems to have been taken up by most of the names in MWC, although a few seemed reluctant to give it a try. It has been almost revolutionary here. But I really need to do something to my flag. If you could see how I have it, you would...

13-10-18 Observations

A Spanish station dominated 1490 between 00:00 and 01:00. Lots of Spanish OM talk and lively Latin rhythms. I cannot dig out an ID, but the 1490.0018 offset suggests this could be Radio Merida from Venezuela. Radio Vida Nueva from Barranquilla was present on 1489.9843 for most of the morning, with a...
