Default Re: An 80 metre antenna for a *handheld* Rx

Yes, of course the use of the DX10 is purely to try resolve the RFI problem. To listen seriously, I'd be using my Icom, or even maybe the Realistic DX-160, which is more of a mid-level SW radio than a comms receiver, but works quite well on 80m, and suits AM.

So, I am making progress towards getting on to 80m AM, but it is the old adage of setting out to drain the swamp, then finding that first, you have you have to deal with the alligators.

Saturn V had 6 million pounds of fuel. It would take thirty thousand strong men to lift it an inch.
