Disappointed to learn my local area(Colorado Springs) is switching 6 sites to simulcast. I am already experimenting with paper clip for fun, just to see reception levels from the sites. crossing my fingers when it goes live
Some paper clips are made entirely of plastic. This means that there is no coating to remove. They come in a variety of colors, so one can make a decorative antenna that matches the radio, the station decor, or whatever you are wearing during a listening session.Another thing to watch for is some are painted or coated with plastic, which you'll need to remove at least in the area where you insert it into the connector. Failure to do so may cause damage to the connector and will nearly certainly cause a high-loss connection.
