SDR antenna

Post by Blue Ox2 » Monday, 31 July 2017, 13:58 PM

I just ordered a NooElec Balun One Nine and a Usmile LW1650 Portable Long Line shortwave antenna shortwave radio antenna for RTL SDR receiver shortwave radio stations to hook up to the CPU.

Guess this will be bringing in some different type stations.

I have my SDRPlay RSP1 hooked up to a Diamond Super Discone model D130J (can use it to transmit on 2m as well) which would be excellent for your dongles but if you want to go lower in the frequency spectrum then the long wires will work fine.

That is a cool site. We were using it listening for ourselves on the 11m band in Brazil and Germany when skip was rolling good.

With these SDRs you can listen to ham on your computers? or do you have a radio that you use?

Because I have no clue and am interested in listening too.

Howdy Cletus,

You could probably check WebSDR.com and see how you like some
of the stuff.
You can listen to Ham on there from all over the world.

Mike

The discone is great for frequencies above 25mhz, below that a long wire and balun will be better. Have fun surfing the bands.
