I do agree with the antenna being more important than the receiver, but keep in mind that even if you have a Wellbrook loop and propagation isn't favorable at your location, it won't necessarily help you hear any better other than being able to null out local noise.

1709 talk about Gorbachev, communism, MLK, biblical viewpoint, etc.

If you can find a used older Palstar R30 in good shape it will perform well at least for MW.

This is the setup I've been using on the weekends for the last few months with good results:

SMC HF-150 - PAR BCB Filter - MMD-40 Mixed Mode Dipole on the ground East-West direction.  The old Optimus speaker is a good match for the 150 in both sound & volume and with the Talentcell 6000mAh battery I can easily run the receiver for 7-8 hrs. (it can go much longer), recording stations using the voice memo app on my iphone and direct input cable.  The beer helps cut through the static :)

Although I have my indoor setup listed in my signature, I much prefer SWLing outdoors - it's way more fun!

Here's a few recordings I've made using this setup:

Captain Morgan
Virus-19 Radio
Radio Mali
Radio Romania
Voice Of Turkey
Voice Of Islamic Republic Iran

Just tuned in with a fair signal into the swamplands this morning.

Been listening since ~ 14:05z...weak, but audible in between local QRM bursts.  Still got 'em at 14:44z.

Nice catch!
