If you own a Tecsun PL-360, PL-365 or a
CountyComm GP5/DSP or GP5/SSB, you might take note of this large ferrite bar antenna offered by a Greece-based seller on eBay.
As you can see in the image above, this antenna is substantially larger than
the stock MW antenna supplied by the manufacturer. According to the seller, this ferrite bar antenna has a 10 – 25 db gain over the stock external antenna. I imagine its ability to null unwanted signals is also much better.
The price is about $40 US shipped internationally.

Now posted up on my web page. It’s mid way down. Note : I also totally updated my Tecsun PL-360 review as well (the first top review on this same page).
Dave’s reviews are always top-notch, so you should read this one if considering the GP5/SSB. If you haven’t already, you can
