John you might want to take a look at the Antennas thread; the sticky there has a couple of links with lots - and I do mean lots of different antenna designs. While it's true that listening in an apartment means some compromises, you can still hear some very interesting stuff. I used to run a Drake R7A , Yaesu FRG7 and TenTec RX320 (sold the Drake and Yaesu due to serious financial problems, hung onto the TenTec) with various attic antennas and always managed to pick up some good stuff.JohnnyGalaga said:How good is your HF reception in the apartment?
