I have a couple of questions for the learned forum. I have an MFJ 1886 receive only antenna and an RSP 1A SDR. I have set the antenna on an AR 500 High Gain rotator which works fine. What I would like help with is which way do you point the antenna to start?. Say for instance from my home I wanted to listen to a Volmet at Shannon in Ireland, would I take a compass bearing for Shannon and near enough point the antenna edge in that direction and adjust to fine tune the direction and listen. I am really at a loss where to start. With my long wires etc. it was put it up and tune around, but which way do I start east west north south. Sorry to be a bit naive about this, I have searched the internet but not found the definitive answer yet. One other question, are both edges of the antenna the same in receiving, i.e. does it matter which edge is facing to the place you want to receive from. Thank you in anticipation.
