We have had horrible cooperation from the weather for the first 3 events and our on the air time has been limited so the club decided to change the qualification for the certificate. Now you only need to QSL 5 of 7 of the Special Events to get the clean scoop certificate !!

Good Luck and 73 from SEKARC

SW Randon Wire vs Beverage Antenna

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

Published on Jan 3, 2015

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.

  1. Remote Electrical Tilt (RET) or Variable Downtilt antennas enable mobile phone ... an antenna to meet changing conditions such as variations in the density Wavelink Antenna.
