TopBand: Beverage matching
Thu, 25 Feb 1999 21:49:08 -0800
Further to the above...Beverage antennas can build up a fair wallop of
precipitation static, particularly from snow, and the isolated primary
going to earth ground (rather than just receiver ground as is possible with
the autotransformer) bleeds this static off on a continuous basis.
And the isolated primary really can make a difference to the pick up of
local electrical noise.
