I thought this might be an interesting comparison for our use in SDR receiving...... what a difference !!

This video is a comparison of a 64ft random wire antenna and a 240ft beverage antenna. I used my classic Hallicrafters S-20R Sky Champion Shortwave receiver. You can clearly hear the difference in the noise floor and with the beverage you can hear a couple more stations. I knew the beverage was great for my Yaesu FT-101, but it rocks for SWL as well.
