Well, for starters, you PMed me a question about antennas back on April 21st and I replied with a few suggestions and asked you a question back so I could better help you figure out exactly what you'd need for your environment. Still waiting for your reply.Im still trying to learn everything any advice or tips to keep in mind?
I didn't take it as disrespect-it's just that you're not the first one in here who presents a vague scenario to work with. It just gets a little annoying.I have been researching everybody's response to my question sorry I work a lot of weird hours I wasn't able to get the Icom radio. However I did find a New in box Grundig 750 I have put up my own long wire its 100ft about 30ft in the air I think I am getting a pretty good signal nut im not sure lol is there a way to tell also I ran a ground to my nearest cold water pipe from the radio is this a correct method. Ridgescan I didn't mean a disrespect thank you everybody for you help and suggestions
What you call "the feedline" is in fact the "radiating element"...in other words, the "antenna". The 100' galvanized wire is combining, in spite of the insulators, with the 50' copper #12 wire to actually be a 150' antenna.Hey Ridgescan
Thanks for the Starter Frequencies.
1 The feed line is 100ft of galvanized wire with insulators on both ends with a 50ft of 12guage copper wire running to the what I call speaker connection on the side of the Grundig
2 the ground is just a insulated wire run from the negative (speaker plug) not sure what the proper name is for these type of connections. it is then ran to my cold water pipe of my water heater and is secured by a grounding clamp
3 Is a coax feedline better then my current?
4 I found a website called Short-Wave Radio Frequency Schedule for BBC in ENGLISH ever heard of it?
