So, the D-130J Super Discone is a good receiving antenna? Great, that's what I was searching for.
Although I run into a little issue: right now, I live in northern France and have no trouble receiving most French, British and German signals. However, I'm in the process of buying a holiday house in which I'd like to install a HAM station, equipped with the RSP2 since I have a spare one from a dismantled emitter/receiver station we had built for my son's high school physics class.
However, it would be far away, and in very different situations; right now, I'm looking at this
house, which would be 1) in Greece and 2) near the sea.
So, I have several questions :
-Would the D-130J antenna allow me to receive Western/Northern European emissions from that far away?
-Since I wouldn't be there most of the time, how do I store it? I'll dismount it before leaving, but do I have to pack it a certain way to avoid it getting damaged by sea salt and things like that? What about the hot and dry climate, compared with damp Northern France?
-Will the proximity of the sea mess with radio signals if I want to receive, and if I were later on to buy another antenna to emit?
Thanks a lot!
