You keep making tantalising references to these mysterious antenna experiments
Nothing mysterious, lots of hard work making improvements. Its never ending !!
Listen to my signals and judge the results for yourself.
- perhaps you could share some of the results with the rest of the LF group.
I'm particularly interested to know how Mercedes figure with regard to LF - do
you use them for antenna top loading, or bury them for improved grounding
perhaps? I suppose if you laid enough of them end-to-end along an uncongested
road, you could make a sort of Beverage antenna.
Two end to end is the best that I can do.
As an amateur with a QTH only a few miles north of Watford, my budget for LF
experiments probably wouldn't run to a single Mercedes, let alone an abundance
of them - do you think Fords or Ladas would be a workable sustitute?
No there is no substitute for the real thing. Others are getting close but the
ones that you refer to are unmentionable.
Cheers, Jim Moritz
