On Christmas Island, with its high QRN levels and huge general atmospheric
noise, receiving on a conventional omni-directional (transmit) antenna is
about as much use as a snowball is in hell.
Charlie VK9XG depends on a very low dipole with a huge current balun on it
and a couple of pennants as receive antennas to be able to hear anything
through the horrendous S9+ racket that passes for atmospheric noise in
VK9. He also has problems with the dreaded OTHR duel that is going on in
the P5/BY area.
Good luck and hope you get him.
