A very simple method of drastically increasing the signal strength to your shortwave radio is to simply add about 50 to 70 feet or more of insulated wire of small diameter, (size not critical, it must support it's own weight), attached to either the telescoping antenna with an alligator clip or a suitable connector to the rear external antenna.

Shortwave antenna plans and links category is a curation of 54 web resources on, Echelon-Log Beverages, Hula Loop Antenna, Slinky and loaded beverages. Resources listed under Shortwave Antennas category belongs to Antennas main collection.

This antenna spans a tuning range spanning MHz through 40 MHz and thus covers 80 – 10 meters on the amateur radio bands, all international shortwave bands plus the 11 meter CB bands.

The antenna comes with a 3′ coaxial cable to attach the antenna BNC output to a SO/PL input of your receiver (most receivers).

Dipole antennas often are the easiest to build, and then turned into inverted V antennas by raising the center of the antennas up into the inverted V style. It's a good idea to have your antenna at least one half (1/2) wavelength of the antenna. one quarter (1/4) wave is the minimum height above ground for effective performance.

In my previous blog on the topic of software defined radio (), I provided a quickstart guide to using gqrx, GNU Radio and the RTL-SDR dongle to receive FM radio and the amateur two meter (VHF) the same software configuration and the same RTL-SDR dongle, it is possible to add some extra components and receive ham radio and shortwave transmissions from around the world.

A compact, easy-to-build shortwave antenna The Broomstick Special. By Arnie Coro Host of "Dxers Unlimited", Radio Habana, Cuba. This is a "helically wound" wire antenna. It can be built in a few hours it will take longer if you really want to make it look pretty ugly versions can be assembled in minutes.

First, you decided to get your own shortwave receiver. You wanted to be able to listen to unfiltered worldwide news. Applause, and a pat on the back, for taking a positive step.

However, an unexpected problem may soon surface. Any internal ferrite or wand/rod antenna, like what the radio came with, will only effectively receive strong signals.

Unfortunately, it can’t do a good job on weak. 2. The Long Wire Shortwave Outdoor Antenna.

Details Build your own shortwave antennas FB2

It’s the simplest shortwave antenna that has newly joined to build antennas. A long length of wire is stretched out literally from SW receiver antenna connection.

And then attached to an insulator on the opposite end. Your SW radio either has a pull-up antenna or a connection point, on the rear usually. Turn on your shortwave radio (mine is a Sony ICF-SW G). Extend its telescopic antenna and place it near and parallel to one side of your homemade tuned loop shortwave antenna.

tune-in a broadcast station within the frequency coverage range of your antenna (mine covers to MHz). The Armstrong "Crystal Radio (or its good looking brother, the Geezerola Senior) is fun, cheap, quick and easy to build and it performs hundreds of times better than a straight crystal radio possibly can, especially with a short antenna.

Used from. Paperback/5(6). ere’s a low cost, simple-to-build, portable shortwave receiver. Its design is noncritical and the receiver is easy to get going. With it, you can receive dozens of international shortwave broadcast stations at night even indoors using a inch whip antenna.

This little radio is perfect for discovering ham-band QSOs, news, music and all the. Most all portable shortwave radios will have a telescoping antenna as well as one built inside (mainly for AM radio band reception).

Some radios (usually the higher priced models) will have an external antenna jack, usually a mm (1/8″), where you can plug in your own external antenna. THE N4UJW ANTENNA PROJECTS DESIGN LAB.

THE BEST HAM RADIO OPERATORS HAVE GOOD ANTENNAS. You can't work them if you can't hear them. Design or build your antenna here. Antenna project contributions are from all over the world. HF, Vhf, Uhf antenna projects and lots more.

Most are designed for ease of construction and expense. I decided to make my own and did it for less than $5. A Balun is used to match a balanced line to an unbalanced line.

An Unun is used to match an unbalanced line to another unbalanced line. This is a Current means it can match a ohm antenna to a 50 feed line. See the Shortwave Radio Kit below. MTM Scientific, Inc. P.O. Box Clinton, Michigan USA.

Here are plans for building a shortwave radio receiver using 3 transistors, a simple homemade coil, an Air Variable Capacitor and some common electrical parts. This circuit is from Charles Kitchin, who has provided a multitude of great radio plans to the hobbyist community.

Receiver commercial receiving antenna. shortwave listening with receivers. Build your own shortwave receiver. Performance not as a Kenwood or Yaesy receiver but so much more fun to receive world wide signals.

Not using integrated circuits. Circuits integrated components of electronical contents. Antenna longwire for shortwave reception. Build your own HF balun new - A balun is a MUST for dipoles or similar antennas when they are feed with coaxial cable.

From the RF point of view, the shield can be modeled as two conductors, the internal shield (the real shield, this is, ground) and the external shield, who is really far to be ground.

A passband filter would be of no use to you because the FRG has its own effective passband filters. HF Preamplifier. Others might suggest inserting an HF Preamplifier between the coaxial cable, coming down from your attic shortwave antenna, and your receiver.

Preamplifiers are usually broadband. They amplify signals.

How to Make a Homemade TV Antenna (Explained With Pictures) One of the best ways to enjoy watching your favorite sitcoms unhindered is to have your own homemade antenna. We have enlisted a few ways you can build your own TV antenna. Instructions for Simple Multi-Band Vertical This PDF explains the antenna and has tips for its construction.

There is also an appendix on Anntenna Matchbox selection and another on Baluns, including how to build your own simple and effective balun for use with an Asymmetrical Matchbox.

Simple Multi-Band Vertical PDF-Dokument [ KB]. Feb 7, - AM radio broadcasting uses amplitude modulation. Because of AM radio's low frequency and clarity, it mainly broadcasts news, talk radio and sports shows. AM radio signals are disrupted by tall, metal buildings and electrical noise, such as electrical motors or lightning.

In the old days, people used radios that used a germanium diode (crystal radio) to receive am radio without the need for a battery (the radio wave powers this type of radio). This site modernizes that concept by showing you how to build a shortwave radio that utilizes a germanium diode.

Why I built my own Vertical Dipole. My interest in radio operations away from the QTH began a search for a Portable HF Antenna. Inspired by the possibilities shown in the prior art of the asymmetrical hatted vertical dipole I decided to test the real thing.

I thought long and hard about procuring a commercial offering.
