Got my Icom R8600 Receiver in yesterday. Hooked the Alpha Delta DX-SWL Sloper antenna to the HF antenna jack and it worked great. Got a lot of learning to do. The Omnix Scanner Base Antenna that I used when I had the SDS200, which I sold, I will hook it to the VHF UHF antenna jack on the receiver for other monitoring. Shortwave from here on. I don't see no future purchases. Just sit back and enjoy. Got a CommRadio CR1 that I got to get rid of.
