Thanks for the comments. Yes, I agree it seems as though it's a major overload. In addition to inserting the filter and attenuator, I've been playing around with RF gain in the SDRplay software I'm using, SDRUno.

I'll try using it with other software for the SDRplay, and also with other receivers, to see if this leads to anything. So far as I know, there are no controls on the Wellbrook antenna itself that can be adjusted. I might also try emailing Wellbrook to see if he has suggestions.

Having said all that, I'm pretty impressed by the performance so far. On the bands I've tried it on so far, it's better than my other antennas (longwire through tuner; EF-SWL end-fed wire; active mini-whip). The only thing that jumps out at me as a problem right now is that LW is super-saturated with ghost signals, which is too bad as I'd like to check out that part of the spectrum more. I may have to cobble together some low-pass filters.
