For two Daves and an Alan. Thank you all I have a few web-sites to go
The B40 has a IF output "port" at 800 khz and feeding that into a IC725
tuned to 800 gives me some gain and a frequency read-out and a CW filter.
The 138.8 sig is bigger than Radio 4 on 198 and only slightly less than
German b'cast on 153. I'll do some S-meter comparisons.
I have a Laboratory type VFO and a Lab. type amplifier with two 807's
joy ;-)) ] both in the 'might-come-in-handy-one-day ' cupboard . but I
think I must work on a good Antenna first.
Then there's this unwanted aluminium ladder to bury LOL
