Default Re: Short Wave listening

Yes, the noise issue could be a killer. Any chance that you could borrow a receiver and get an idea whether your particular QTH is good or bad?

My old TRF worked on the 31m band and pulled in many broadcast stations. I've just tried listening there with my Sony ICF-7600 and can hear nothing but noise , but I already knew that this QTH is very bad for noise. I suspect it is made worse because many houses, including mine, have overhead cables supplying the power.

Data beats opinions most times... that's my opinion, though I have no data on that.
