Dear Thomas and all friends,
This is Giuseppe Morlè, IZ0GZW, from Formia, central Italy on the Tyrrhenian Sea.
I went back to listening with my Kenwood R1000 and indoor homemade cross loops …this time a station in Kuwait, 9k2yd Younes on general call.
I used the 2 loops together and in the last part only the one in the East / West direction and I did not notice any changes. Very strong signals and good evening propagation at 18.00 utc today, 04 June 2022.
Note the absence of electrical noise; the S Meter remains at zero in the absence of modulation and signal.
I am always amazed at my indoor cross loops for the reception quality and they have become the main antenna of my Kenwood R1000.
Giuseppe I hope you enjoy the video
Greeting to all of you from central Italy.
Your cross loop antenna is an amazing QRM-fighter! Thank you for sharing this, Giuseppe. Most impressive and so good to see the R-1000 on the air.
