Home Radio Road

Which tuner to get and getting the most from it. Thank God, for the radio!

IF you get any directional antenna with a boom and cross elementst

You van point it by swinging it.

80 miles is a long way, and the bearing becomes quite critical and the beam width narrow.

Read the rhombic article in FAQ a few times.

IF you build a simple twin ribbon rhombic in the loft space, you will need to know precisely what the bearing to that 80 mile away station is. UP there in the loft. There is a mobile phone compass app which might help. as it is not affected by metal objects being GPS based.

In the article in FAQs there is a spread rhombic and that might have enough beam width to resolve that issue.
