It is occasionally useful to suggest to the newer readers of this
that despite the advice given by G3KEV, significant fun and useful
may be had by LF experimenters who have neither a large wallet or a large
amount of real estate.
Lots of real estate is not necessary for a 100 ft vertical antenna, about
6ft x 6ft concrete base but the average telescopic tower base is about 1 sq
ft. and does not require guys for wire antennas. One insulated radial
running around the garden enclosure will work well. against a base loaded or
gamma matched mast.
You may not attain his level of success and
proficiency, but you can certainly have an enjoyable time while possibly
making some contribution to the art.
If you are happy with you crystal set why change.
Any radio amateur serious about LF activities needs a farm or ranch of some
