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...

Re: Binaural Reception ?

Hi, I've never heard of that. It sounds (no pun intended) like a really useful function, if as I suspect it produces gradual tonal change, thus making the audibility of CW signals for instance capable of optimal adjustment. This ability may already be present and well known to real amateurs. amongst...
