Equipment / Active antenna for condo or apt
« on: July 14, 2019, 0157 UTC »
I've been thinking about moving into a condo in the future. I'm 73 and tired of taking care of a 92 year old house that has problems. This means I would be giving up my 7mhz backyard dipole and CB antenna. I would like to know if anybody is using an active antenna in a condo or apartment and how good the reception is. I fear there would be too much QRM in a multiple unit building. Thanks for any answers.

Tuned in at 0147utc, weak signal with moderate noise, some fading, nice selection of soft pop/rock tunes, thanks. 

Tuned in at 0050utc, fair/poor signal with some fading, song "when you got a headache(?)", at 0054 song "waters of oblivion(?)", at 0056 "ain't nothing like the real thing", at 0058 Jethro Tull "nothing to say", Wolverine ID at 0103, at 0111 "nothin from nothin leaves nothin", at 0121 slow jazz/blues tune "I ain't got nothin but the blues", echo Wolverine ID at 0133 followed by SSTV/FAX,       

Tuned in at 2343utc, weak signal under moderate noise, barely hear music, at 0019utc signal strength has improved, nice program of soft pop/rock music, thanks for the tunes, suddenly moved to 6881usb around 0048, at 0050 retuned to 6950 to hear Wolverine.

Tuned in at 0119utc, weak signal with moderate noise, pop/rock tune that I never heard before, occasional CW QRM (I'm not fluent in Morse), at 0123 WDOG ID, song "games without frontiers", apparently off at 0132utc after CW.

At 0012utc not even a hint of carrier in ssb mode.

Tried to tune in at 2256utc, not a hint of carrier in ssb mode.

Tuned in at 0130utc, weak under moderate noise, hear pop/rock music from 60's and 70's, at 0149 signal improving with nice slow jazz/rock, at 0202utc Van Halen "dance the night away", at 0218 Steppenwolf "magic carpet ride", at 0231utc ID as Mix Radio International, apparently off at 0302utc.   

Tuned in at 0127utc, very weak under moderate noise, detect carrier in ssb mode, barely hear bits of audio at times.
