Mar15 22:01 Love that Hi Z input! (
Mar15 21:59 SORRY you're telling me RSP is Working please excuse the temporary confusion and more good DX QKO (
Mar15 21:57 Yep that's a nasty mismatch seems like you may need a different (maybe Quantum) loop or a longwire to the HI Z input (
Mar15 21:48 just compared the pcr and RSP. I tuned to 1580 on both receivers and connected them both to the HI-Z Antenna input.. The RSP shows S9 +5 and the PCR showed nothing on the S-Me3ter. Hmmmm Nuff said!! Dennis (
Mar15 21:27 Dennis OK glad it seems to be working for you good DX de WB6 QKO (
Mar15 21:05 Before the RSP I haqd to peak the antenna frequently when going up or down in Frequencey. Now tuning the loop doesn't show much change in signal strength from one end of the tuner to the other. Dennis (
Mar15 21:04 I guess that because the RSP has a built in NLA I'm not noticing an increase in signal when tuning the loop because it's doing what it's supposed to be doing. Dennis (
Mar15 21:02 I'm usinbg the RSP2 right now for LW and BCB. On LW I logged about 10 more NDBs the first night with the RSP. I'm using the HI-Z input because the manual states that when using the 50 Ohm inputs the signal begins to degrate below 30 MHz (
Mar15 19:48 Or might need to switch to an antenna that is or can be tuned to present a better match for the RSP2 Good Luck QKO (
Mar15 19:45 So looks like RSP2 has two 50 ohm antenna inputs and one high impedance antenna input. Have you tried treating using the high impedance input? (
Mar15 19:28 And would also want to know the impedance of the Sony antenna and the antenna input impedance of the RSP2 (52 ohms?) as what you're describing could also be caused by an impedance mismatch QKO (
Mar15 19:03 And to peak up in strength when shifting frequency QKO (
Mar15 19:00 One possibility is that the Sony was picking up and amplifying the internal noise in the PCR which was particularly easy to receive QKO (
Mar15 18:58 But am interested in how that noise level on the RSP2 compares with what that noise level looked like on the PCR (
Mar15 18:51 Sorry for all the questions ! qKO (
Mar15 18:51 And with 0 db attenuation and both RF and IF gain set at their maximums what is the noise level on a vacant MW frequency (
Mar15 17:31 Correction...RF Gain and IF gain (
Mar15 17:27 Yes...has an LNA, also has AF Gain and IF gain (
Mar15 16:32 Dennis does the RSP2 have a preamp function or a signal attenuator function? QKO (

Mar15 14:17 I notice that with my new RSP2 I notice much less signal increase when tuning my loop than with the PCR1000. Can anyone explain this? Dennis (

Mar09 01:14 In the end think you'll find that some sort of phasing scheme is necessary to get rid of the other guys dimmers TVs etc, (
Mar09 01:08 The third and least efficient method in my opinion is phase the antenna system against a unit that uses a noise cancelling antenna (thereby increasing noise in the system just before it gets to the receiver like the Time Wave AN4 also expensive QKO (
Mar09 01:04 Units like the DX Engrs NCc-2 can do that expensively but reasonably well QKO (
Mar09 01:00 The Second best solution is remove the noise while still in the antenna system which can be accomplished with antenna phasing (
Mar09 00:58 So far me that means running 2 150 foot wires in landscaped parking trips that are just a bit removed from my own and other residence(s) QKO (
Mar09 00:56 The best solution short of turning off the offending device is to run an antenna that is not prone to picking up the external noise QKO (
Mar09 00:54 The trick on LW is getting rid of external noise from dimmers plasma TVs etc. QKO (

Feb05 00:41 So, even though I don't know exactly where you are in FM18, I'm wondering if you're very close to two stations, both Spanish, that are exactly 700 KHz apart on the AM dial. -- Rick in South Omaha EN21af (
Feb05 00:40 For example, I have locals here in Omaha on 590 and 1290. If I'm in a certain spot in Omaha, especially on a line between the two transmitters, and I'm close to either 590 or 1290, I will get audio from BOTH stations at the same time on 700, as 1290-590=700. (
Feb05 00:39 [14:25] Dennis, here's how a mixing product works: if you have two high-powered AM stations, and are fairly close to the tower of one, the other, or both, the difference in Khz between the two freqs can show up on the AM band. (
Feb05 00:36 [00:35] And it will be, for another 9 minutes, as I pointed out earlier today. Mark in Goshen/Elkhart, are you reading this? -- Rick in South Omaha EN21af (

Feb04 14:24 Rick: I'm using the TOPAZ AM Radio website and I guess I'm not sure how complete the list is but I only see 2 Spanish stations listed and an total of 13 stations total on 700. I've ruled oud out my local DC station as NO Stream match. I was hoping maybe someone had a more complete list that the one I'm using. Dennis (
Feb04 13:26 [12:36] Dennis, on a low frequency like that, it wouldn't be a mixing product of two of your local or semi-local Spanish stations, would it? -- Rick in South Omaha EN21af (
Feb04 12:36 I'm hearing 2 spanish stations on 700 khz when loop is turned to partially null WLW in Ohio. One is playing nearly continuous Spanish music. Neither one is a match to WDMV in MD/DC. Any thought???? Dennis FM18fa (
