Sdrplay and external antenna

Postby dosformat » Tue Nov 17, 2015 4:22 am

Hi there.

I have just purchased the sdrplay.

I am just wondering if it is OK to connect it to my external g5rv antenna for hf?

I am worried about the esd side of things?

Regards

Dos

Hi Dos,

No problem at all unless in he middle of a thunderstorm when antennas should be disconnected. Here in the UK I have a G5RV at 20m height and even leave it connected to my SDR console server when on vacation!

Enjoy! 73, Jon

If your in the City your better off but if your in the countryside then ground it or disconnect it before you leave.
