|Lowe HF-150 & Howes Filter|
The idea being that I can do a bit of SW broadcast listening when tinkering on the bench with other things.
So I didn't tie up the main HF aerials , an old Howes AA-2 active aerial dipole was installed in the attic space.This set up works quite well in conjunction with another Howes kit, a dual bandwidth audio filter - in case of QRM .
I had forgot how nice a strong AM station can sound on the Lowe set through a reasonable speaker or headphones.
Also have a Datong active aerial but this proved a little too strong for the HF-150 with it's wide open front end, causing overloading and spurious signals.Perhaps a few metres of wire and a 'magnetic' balun outside, may prove more suitable.
