So it seems that something is working well here
although I'm not sure what.
Later today or tomorrow when I get time, I will lay
out another wire at 90 degrees to the other one and also 90 degrees away from
the overhead lines. It will be interesting to switch between the 3 antennas
after sunset and see what happens.
The existing wire is roughly ne/sw and the new one
will be almost exactly north/south.
The reduction of the QRM was very noticeable and
somewhere in the order of 6 'S' points, but only on skywave QRM as I also tested
the system out during the day on a Spanish MW station on 551 KHz and both
antennas seem to be very similar in both signal strength and noise.
Fun isn't it.
