Video blog episode 004

Taking a break from the Superloop antenna series, here is some retro DXing.  As noted in this previous blog post, back in the 1980s I used to do television DXing. I’ve finally put together some video clips from 1986 and 1987 showing some of the best “catches” I made back then, along with some comments about the clips. Enjoy!


Video blog episode 003

The third part of the Superloop antenna series is up on YouTube (and has been for a while, I forgot to announce it here). This part goes into detail on the impedance matching transformer needed to deliver a high percentage of the signal from the high-impedance antenna to the 50-ohm feedline.
