The low long wire is a Beverage and the termination is for RF. It works 
down to DC as does the antenna though it looses its directivity when it 
gets short in wavelengths. Overall its rotten at receiving so often 
needs its own preamp, but its also more rotten at receiving noise from 
other than its preferred direction.
