Hi Chris,

Oh, they sell it! Quite expensive, i find.

I think it depends on where you want to place the antenna later. On the top of a house or on the car in an open field it works without an additional wire. If you place it in or below or beside a tree or in the field shadow of a house, some additional wire could be helpful to rise the signal level. But often this does not rise the SNR, just the level. I would try it without additional wire first and see if the signal levels are high enough. Its better to put it into a QRM-clean and free standing environment.

A friend bought me an active RX antenna, a PA0RDT clone, from Ebay:

as  a  gift for sorting a car problem. It's built and working, but the
build  notes  suggest  an  additional wire on the PCB that acts as the
aerial  may  be  needed. What are people's thoughts on adding say a 12
inch  wire  poking out the PVC tube that it will be mounted high up outside
in? Necessary or not? Just use the PCB board antenna? Thanks.
