Been thinking about my next project for a while. The last CQ WPX CW SOSB 40m suited me and the effort was more competitive than previous given the antenna space constrains / garden orientation and local QRN.
Improving the RX performance seem a logical next step...
Plenty of good info about low band RX antennas [presentation and videos] in the Contest Uni web
A couple of simple antennas to build and experiment:
-BOG - beverage on the ground -
-small RX loop
The small loop should significantly null the local VDSL noise in the street [overhead cables]
Given the proximity of the TX - I am planning to build an additional isolation relay box for the RX antenna. I do not want to risk damaging the TS-590S receiver.
