General Radio Discussion / My Antenna ?
« on: July 23, 2013, 1450 UTC »
Hey guys, What's happening ? Just thought i'd pop in quickly and get a rundown on my equipment from some folks here, that are much more experienced than me when it comes to SW/HF DXing and TXing. So ill list my current set up.

1 x Grundig Satellit 750 AM/FM/SW Radio w/ SW loop antenna

1 x Regulated 24V 60AMP delta communications power supply (can run 3 HF radios)

1 x Digitech 80 channel UHF CB radio w/ 2 feed UHF-2-BNC adapter (therefore running 2 UHF antennas @ 477mhz 5DBi gain)

1 x ICOM 718 HF Transceiver (plugged into power supply, obviously) running 2 feed UHF-2-BNC adapter w/ one 25-29mHz base antenna and the other antenna is a 330 feet longwire antenna using standard RG58 COAX cable. (striped and soldered) now the question i have is 1. What do you think of my current setup? and 2. is a 330 foot antenna made of this cable [ http://goo.gl/5WvRBV ]
going to do ok ?

Cheers guys.

Sincerely, Dash Bronzehand.

ATM I am running a longwire antenna, a have a couple, this just happens to be it ATM.

It is made from RG58COAX cable, pretty ideal for SW/HF Frequencies. However i believe what you receive is dependent upon the length of the wire? the length is around 9 meters / 30 foot.

Am i right in saying only 20,17,15,12,10 METER bands are accessible through this?

Im posting this in SW Pirate section as this section gets ALOT of attention and  i need help identifying 3 transmissions i heard.Please download the folder in the link i give.. it will be the mediafire link at the bottom of this paragraph - PLEASE, Give the clips and listen and the video a watch and HELP ME this has been bothering me for HOURS. One clip is titled ''Decoded'' because, it is just that. I believe. I was just outta the 40m band at about 6.979.844 and that clip i recorded was audible between about [6.979.844 & 6.980.500] @ 0530-0531UTC (4.42am) AEST. i am intermediate at best with CW but i decoded to the best of my abilites and what i found was very interesting. The decoded transmission is explained in the !!README!!.txt file as for the rest ''Clicking'' & ''MORSE&UNKNOWN'' are both just mp3 files, UNKNOWNSOUNDS Is a video. It is is negative and this greatly improved the image quality in such a dark room. Thankyou, and PLEASE help i am very eager to find out what the others say/mean. I may be onto something. I do live less than 15km/6mi from a ''Defence imagery and geospatial organisation'' curtain broadcast antenna array.
