"Anyone" might be able to receive NDBs over a reasonable distance but like
any other area of listening there are some who manage to hear things that
most others don't.
Perhaps you'd better give some of the Canadian and South American NDBs a try
if they're so easy to receive? :-)
That bloke seems to really like Wellbrook stuff....
Has anyone ever tried one as a 136 receiving antenna? How does it cope
being under a TX antenna on power?
Anyone can receive beacons and broadcast stations! ;-)
