Hi Henk,
Where do you obtain the SRF-M37L? I'm not familiar with that model, with the LF?

The longer the wavelength, the larger the antenna needed for good reception. That's why the typical ultralight doesn't do well on LW. I'll let others speak to what's available to help the signals.

Correct, but this rule doesn't explain why the Tecsuns underperform on LW in comparison with e.g. Sony's SRF-M37L (even with all its shortcomings) which has a shorter antenna.
