I have about 17 acres to play with, mainly woodland but with a 5 acre
field and a big front garden. I thought an aerial antenna would be a
none starter due to the voltages involved, so I'll be looking at a
ground loop for sure. Here's a link to an aerial plan of what I can
use, but I am going to need some basic advice to get going I am afraid
Links to what you have in mind for ferrite cores would assist in me
having a clearer view of what's involved here please. Thanks Stefan.
