[QUOTE=Boombox;2824537]^^^^^^ Yes and no. I've been using the same indoor antenna since 2011, and used to pull in a *lot* more SW than I do now. Especially Radiobras (Amazonia) -- conditions had to be abysmal for it not to come in.


What indoor antenna are you using?

Fantastic conditions here on a Sunday morning-a shot of the good old BBC transmitting at a little over 11,000 miles from Talata-Volonondry, Madagascar on 12095kHz. I love Winter propagation!

It's a 25-30 foot wire that is folded back on itself and runs in a rough L, in the second story of the house. So It might be longer than 25-30 feet... But that's probably its effective length. I put it up after I began to get re-interested in SWL and Ham listening in 2011. On SW I've used it with my DX-398, 390, and 440.

PS Sorry for the late reply... Didn't notice it until just now.
