What about a K9AY RX antenna if limited room (or flagg or pennant), or a
beverage is room is not an issue?  Or you can also use a small receiving
loop .  I have used the RX loop, and want to build a K9AY.

Subject: [TowerTalk] 75 meter antenna noise

Can anyone recommend a way to reduce noise on my 75 meter inverted Vee or
alternately I am looking for a quieter antenna , I am using a current fed
balun and seems to me if I can dc couple the 2 quarter wave sections perhaps
I can reduce the noise somewhat . Any help would be appreciated .

When I use my folded 40 meter driven element on my Steppir for 75 meter
receive my S/N ratio is around 40 db with my balun fed inverted Vee its
around 15 db always have  S9 hiss .

I was looking at a double bazooka as a replacement perhaps . Any comments.
