Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Gareth Buxton, who writes:
I see that Anon-co have the Tecsun PL-990 Ferrite rod aerial for sale. It even says in the product description “You can use it for your DIY projects.” I thought it might be of interest to your MW/AM radio constructors, especially if they can build a radio that receives more stations than the Tecsun using the same part!

Thanks for the tip, Gareth. This would indeed make it easy to construct an external MW antenna. Thank you for the tip!
In Australia, there is a store named Jaycar that sells various electronic parts. I saw a Ferrite Rod, which is very similar in dimensions to the one discussed in this article.
I will eventually build an FSL Antenna using something similar, but I plan to do lots of research first.
Dear Mr Thomas
It is possible to use a ferrite rod antenna like this one: https://www.anon-co.com/product/an48x-ferrite-rod-antenna to improve the MW reception on a Malachite SDR?
I’m sure you could, Jorge, but it might require building an interface and experimenting. I assume you would simply swap it out with the HF antenna when in use.
