Better DX hunting with a 14 US Dollar SDR receiver

I am a big fan of the 10m band.  An extra receiver would be nice to listen on 10m, so I can use the TS-480HX to listen across the HF bands. But with a second receiver, you probably need an extra power supply and extra space in your shack. A Continue reading Better DX hunting with a 14 US Dollar SDR receiver

Nice propagation to test the Moxon antenna

Lucky me!!! No better way to test the homemade 10m Moxon antenna then with current conditions. Best propagation since 2003, definitely! I took the chance to do one on one tests, and results are a bit surprising in a positive way. But first of all for the right comparison: Moxon Continue reading Nice propagation to test the Moxon antenna

I made a setup with a dipole and the 10m Moxon antenna to compare results. But for some reasons both antennas acted not normally. The Moxon had almost none front to back ratio and the dipole could not be tuned to resonate with a decent SWR. It seemed that the Continue reading Let’s start testing the 10m Moxon antenna, or not…
