I live on a city lot without much room for a long receiving antenna
for 80-160. Have any of you tried the EWE 38' antenna written up in
QST? How well does it work? Are you hearing stuff you can't otherwise
hear? Are you using a receiver pre-amp? If so, how much gain from
the pre-amp? The antennas are supposed to have good front to back, but
being verticals in phase, do they seem to pick up much noise?
How bad is the mutual coupling to a 80/160 vertical within 1/8-1/4 wave?
Is building one worth the effort or a waste of time??

Pls and tnx. 72/73 de Alan
