Re: Receive Antennas

k9wis@...
 

how much land do you have...Our FD group sets out beverages for 40 and 80 meters to pull in those weak signals at night...but we still xmit on the dipoles up in the trees. they are long(multiple wavelengths, I think) but only sit a few feet above ground, a termination resistor at one end makes them directional, some matching needs to be done(guess I'll have to check the antenna handbook).

Hello everyone. I'm interested in a decent portable receive antenna. I'm
wondering if anyone uses something like that at home or while going
portable.

Hey Barry,

I saw stations working you on 20m last night but I still can't find the DX pipe to BC yet.

I will keep looking though.  My luck has got to change.

Mike...I prefer Dodge...though I do drive a GMC. I've never owned a Ford. =)

When I started a couple years ago I started with Ham Radio Deluxe. I liked it, I really liked the interface. I thought it was clean and modern. Some of the older ones I just really cannot stand the look. I've tried a bunch and didn't care for them. Once HRD went to a more pay system, I moved to DXLab Suite and I've really liked using WinWarbler. So many options, maybe too many. I intend on trying some of the new software that was mentioned in this post. 

Thanks,

I don’t know about you, Mike, but I always really liked the look of the waterfall in Digipan.  The default waterfall settings in DM780 I thought were abysmal.  It took quite a bit of tweaking for me to get that nice Digipan look.  The cool thing about DM780 is that it is very customizable.

 

Recently I was compelled to us Fldigi for Field Day.  I am not a fan.  For one thing I never could get the “center” frequency to work via the various machine controls.  That was a deal-breaker for me.

I really don't want a piece of software that butters my toast and rotates my tires... I want a piece of software that does what Digipan did... and does it well.

I will tell you that after running MixW for a while and then seeing some screenshots of what some ops had done to customize DM780, I tried it again.  After a lot of tweeks, I completely changed my mind about DM780 and now I am loathe to use anything else.

I hesitate to ask because I don’t want to start a ‘Ford vs. Chevy’ discussion… but I’m going to ask anyway.

After being off the air for a few years, I’m back on and having fun.  I had always used Digipan before, but it refuses to run on my Windows 10 machine.  I’ve downloaded a bunch of different software for a test drive, and frankly, I miss the look and simplicity of Digipan! 

My favorite features were the ability to decode multiple streams and the automatic recognition of a ‘CQ’ on the waterfall. 

What’s your favorite software that has these features  and why is it your favorite?  FWIW, I do NOT like HRD/DM780, and I’m NOT going to change my computer or OS.  I’m a guy who lives in front of a computer 10 hours a day 5 days a week, so I just want software that WORKS.
