Several ZL amateurs, including myself, have had
quite good results in minimising LF QRM by using an active whip antenna sited
somewhat away from houses (and their mains wiring). Attention needs to be
paid to RF isolation of the power supply for the antenna, and using balance RF
transmission lines, otherwise the mains QRM can still get to the antenna via the
shack and feeder. 5 metres or so separation of an active whip from house
wiring can greatly reduce the mains-conducted QRM, but is still good for
receiving wanted DX signals.
