Antenna for LW

For someone living in a small space, what would be the best way to receive LW? Would it help if 500 feet wire was coiled? Or zigzag?

Shielding for RSP2

I bought the RSP2 which comes with a plastic case. The user manual says it is a shielded case so I guess it has some kind of metal paint inside? But does it need a metal case for better performance?

Re: New user here

Support replied. The crash is because Hi-Z is only up to 30mhz. Problem solved.

Re: Static from Antenna

i think you might be correct. I zap everything i touch in winter.

That being said, do i need to protect the front end from overload/overvoltage ? Would it be okay to use an LNA ?

Re: New user here

have not used FB for 7 years now - only because I know what goes on behind the scenes ;)
