[TowerTalk] WSW beverage noise reduction
Wed, 29 Mar 2000 07:46:53 -0600
I remember once hearing S9 atmospheric noise on 80M
and switching to my NE Beverage where the noise dropped
to S1 and the band was full of Europeans. There was a
storm reported in the Gulf of Mexico. I would expect a
WSW Beverage would have picked up that noise just fine!
