The best antenna I have tested till now

Post by illllm » Sat Oct 06, 2018 11:27 am

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

I am now receiving LW, MW and SW radio very clear. I Used the ebay LNA mentioned in the article. i dont have test equipment except my eyes and my ears :P

Congratulations on your new antenna! :D I'm about 35 miles away from the big antennas with line of sight but my reception is weak on a lot of channels. I did some research and came upon the Antennas Direct DB4 antenna and the horde of hobbyists that have copied the design using coat hangers. It looks cool and a lot of people seem happy with the performance. Have you ever built this antenna with success before? I'm looking to make one myself
