Home Radio Road

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

+1, where's the ground plane?

I once went to the trouble to bury two long ground wires in a triangle under my random length, tuned, AM BCB antenna, feeding a wide-band-audio AM stage.

One wire made things noticeably quieter but not a lot, two were a waste of effort. But, they re still there and might be of use when I put an enclosed active toroidal looped item on the mast.

? The random wire broke and I'm banned from climbing ladders.
