Thank you both Andy and Mike

A query regarding eathing (grounding)

Having done some reading-up on the topic, I now find myself rather confused by either the "depth" of the explanations and the contradicitions that one finds. I am only interested (at present) in a receive-only setup. Question 1: Is it sufficient to ground a simple end-fed long-wire to a co...

Re: It works. Three RX's for two WSJTX's and one RX to play with.

Bang for the buck...Depending on depth of pocket, processing power and how much much "real estate's available,'" a RSPDUO, a RSP2 and a RTLSDR (SCANNING) can give quite a bit of flexibility e.g. 2 X HF & 2 X V/UHF or 3 X Hf & 1 X V/UHF or 4 V/UHF (not too shakey). SP displays avail...
