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

Hi Steve! I will be quite busy for a week or so.

I see you have worked out the compass bearings from your place to the different stations.

Focus on the ones whose programming really matters to you.

Do some have more then one txer site in range?

Select strongest txer / signal at your place.

Draw those bearings on to a plan of your apartment.

Then select - which rooms - to put a large enough (enough gain) rhombic in - so that its axis points at one or two/three - or can be 'spread' - see the Audio article for that spread version of a rhombic.

I am fortunate that one* of my two desired stations (*very powerful txer) is on one high tower - plus the one Txer less than 2km away - so that one new 6 element Yagi pointed at the tower does the job.
