However, you can forgo that unit, and run an assload of old-ass speaker wire under a big rug, and that will act as a counterpoise as well. Good luck!!!!!

Define "assload".  How many feet do you think would be necessary?

Equipment / Grounding A Radio
« on: May 13, 2020, 0309 UTC »
Do you guys think using this item is a safe way to ground my Tecsun S-8800?  The outlet it would be going in is properly grounded and the bare wire section would connect to the ground port on the back of the radio.  I am using an MLA 30 mag loop with the radio.  I've heard mixed things about connecting to grounds in home wiring, some folks say it decreased unwanted noise and others say it actually increased unwanted noise.  Opinions please.  I am in a 3rd floor condo, so a grounding rod is not really an option for me.
