Re: Reception on Grundig G3 NOT Amazingly Improved with new 80 Ft Longwire Antenna

Graeme Zimmer <gzimmer@...>

The only way to reduce the Shortwave over-driving was to wrap the
Antenna Jumper around the Radio instead of clipping it to the Aerial, then it wasn't so bad.

- As Jay said, use the antenna input, that is what it is there for. Connection direct to the whip is far too sensitive.

- Use the attenuator switch, or wire up a simple potentiometer as a variable attenuator.

- If images and breakthrough are still a problem, hook up a simple antenna tuner.
