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

The G3 is not well suited to an external Wellbrook ALA330S overloads it badly even in teh daytime. My PL-660 handles it much better.

Well after DXing late last night I am dissappointed. The Antenna seems to be way too strong!!  One local 50.000 watt station here was overriding ALL the Shortwave Bands. AM reception wasn't as bad, in fact its better, but even in the AM band that 50000 watt Station at 680 Hz is showing up. The only way to reduce the Shortwave overdriving was to wrap the Antenna Jumper around the Radio instead of clipping it to the Aerial, then it wasn't so bad.
Is there a way to fix this?  Seems like such a waste after all the work it took to put up the 80 foot Antenna.
