Antenna for RSP2

Postby kjdahlen2 » Thu Dec 14, 2017 10:50 pm

I am new to Antennas, and it is also now Winter now in NH USA. What is the easiest Antenna Build or Purchase for use with the RSP2 that will give me service over this Winter ? I would like to use the Antenna over many bands / frequencies.

Thanks in advance for your help !

There is no single antenna that will perform well on all bands, so you have to narrow down your bands of interest or use more than one antenna. A wideband active loop antenna like the Wellbrook 1530 will serve you well from LF to 30 MHz, but if you want to go higher you should try dipoles, discones and yagis.
A random wire will work on HF, but these days with all the electronic noise the results can be poor.

I don't know if there are any outlets for the ALA1530 in the US, but if you contact Andy Ikin at Wellbrook https://www.wellbrook.uk.com/loopantennas/ he will get you on the road.
