Hi Léon,

I don't have experience of these small compact active antennas but they do get quite good reviews. What you have as a big advantage is height. My feeling is that the longest possible wire taped to the inside of the window would still give similar results. If there is any way to dangle a small length of wire out of the window when you are listening then this could work even better, particularly on say 14MHz where a 5 metre length is a perfect quarter wavelength.

Here is an article encouraging the use of wire as near as possible to the outside world.....

Let us know how you get on.

Best regards, Jon
