IF PEOPLE CANT RESPECT EACH OTHER, SHARE THE USE OF MY RECEIVER LIKE I DO THEN YOU WILL BE BAND ,ANY INSULTS ,HOGGING ,RUDENESS ,ETC GENERAL 5 YEAR OLD BEHAVIOUR YOU WILL BE BAND .


THE RECEIVER KEEPS RANDOMLY GOING OFFLINE I DONT KNOW WHY THE PC IS RUNNING FINE ,THE INTERNET IS FINE , I REBOOT WHEN I CAN .

THE SIGNAL METER DOES NOT SHOW THE CORRECT SIGNAL STRENGTH ,something to do with the eprom they say !

apparently its a good receiver for listening to military aircraft crossing the country

The longwire is a 10 meters, each side dipole !
It is at 45 degrees to the sky ,and is sideways to Europe

the aerial used for 76-470MHZ is a sigma scan king SE1500 ,its frequency coverage is 500 KHz-1500 Mhz
