Re: More fake units sold on Ebay

As soon as you plug in those fake ones from China, they will steal all the information in your computer.

The best antenna I have tested till now

I tried a long wire...it was okay for my home in the city. But i could not stretch it out as much. I got the PA0RDT miniwhip. It was great. i mounted it in the attic with chickenwire for grounding. It got very good reception. I finally spent $25 and made this https://pa0fri.home.xs4all.nl/Ant/Active...

Vexed !!

So i got this pocket HD radio a few days ago and I was experimenting with it. My plan was to improve its antenna. I have a miniwhip in the attic and a few other antennas that I used with RTLSDR. I tried all of them and using them this HD radio would barely pull in normal FM signals. So out of curios...

Re: Grounding of Active Antennas Like The Mini-Whip

I do grounding for 4 feet this way: 6inch circumference hole , 4 feet long . Grounding rod in middle then first I pour in 1 foot of charcoal, one pound rock salt on that. Then I add I foot of dirt. Then one feet of coal, then one pound rock salt on that. Cover it all with dirt. Works perfectly.
