Equipment / Re: Cat6 wire for RX antenna
« on: October 07, 2018, 1600 UTC »
Pretty much any wire will work for receiving.  The tricks are 1) location, 2) geometry, and 3) getting a reasonable impedance match to your feedline and/or radio (doesnít have to be exact...but you donít want a high Z antenna trying to feed a low Z input or vice versa.

I had decent (eg better than the included whip) results with some plain old enameled wrapping wire connected to my Sony portable.  In fact, my old grinding came with an external antenna that was just a spool of 28-ish GA wire with a plug on the end.

Play around with it and have fun. Plastic thumbtacks are useful for temporary installations inside....

Solid S2-S3 here.

0008: Still Winger.  God help us.  Sounds slightly off freq...maybe 6930.05U?  Weak (S1-ish)
0010: Whitesnake "still of the night"
0016: Slaughter "Up all night"
0020: Warrant "Cherry Pie".  Knew that was going to show up.  Poison has to be in this setlist at some point....
0023: Skid Row "Youth Gone Wild".  Signal up to S3 now
0026: Sammy Hagar "Heavy Metal"
0030: Station ID and Poison "Talk Dirty To Me".  Fading out (and of course faded during the station ID)

Carrier and unintelligible audio.  S1 at best, way down in the QRN.   SIO 111....

S3-4, SIO 333.  Chanting, but sounds like something else (man talking) trying to cut in.  Can't tell if it's another station or not

1453:  Pink Floyd "Shine on..."  S1-2 with deep fades. SIO 222 ish
1457:  Pink Floyd "Fat old sun" (according to Siri).  Signal pumping up ....S3-5, SIO 344
1503:  Continuing w/ Pink Floyd!  "What do you want from me".  Signal trying to settle down to a stable S3. 
1508:  Pink Floyd "Time". 
1509:  Big time (lol) fade.  Still have the carrier at S4 but no audio.
1511: Back on the air.  Must have been changing carts or turntables.  LOL! (Siri ID) "Charity" by someone. 



Thanks for the workday show!

1851: Station ID
1851: Music
