Google " SSC wefax demodulator " , There's a whole page of hits, including a vintage PDF catalog from SSC and their webpage (circa 2005)..

Moved from the HF digital decoding forum since it has nothing to do with freqs below 30 Mhz

not sure what you are asking. but the radio i think you talking about was a modified version. it was modified to receive wideband. it is not the off the shelf verson of the radio.
hope that answers the question
as far as an antenna goes. you will have to track the bird on the pass. you can use a antenna like a ground plane but will not be real happy with the pictures you will get.
